Lions Free Agency: Ted Ginn Visit Ends For Detroit With No Signing

The Detroit Lions hosted former Dolphins and 49ers wide reciever/return specialist Ted Ginn on Thursday, and though Ginn appeared to have liked what he saw he did not leave with a contract in his hand. He did say that he liked the Lions and a signing could happen in the future if he doesn't like any of the other places he might visit in his free agency.

"I enjoyed myself here today," Ginn said. "A great group of coaches all the way around. As far as a commitment, it's just a little early right now. I'm going to see my options, but I like the Lions."

Ginn, originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins, has been used almost exclusively as a return specialist, where he has shone in his career so far. He indicated after leaving the 49ers that he wants to be seen as more of a receiver by the next team who picks him up. The Lions have a somewhat deep receiving unit so he wouldn't be anywhere near a No. one or two man on the squad, though.

Ginn caught 19 passes for 220 yards with the 49ers last season.
