10:38 AM ET 06.29 | Carolina Panthers wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. believes he can be a productive wide receiver in the NFL, according to Steve Reed of The Charlotte Post. Ginn said that he wants to "show the world that I can still play receiver," and not be labeled simply a return specialist. Ginn was the No. 9 overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. From the onset, he was supposed to use his speed to become one of the top deep threats in the NFL, but it never quite worked out that way. Ginn struggled with route running, and though he did get open a lot thanks to that speed, he had frequent drops.

A shot of Ginn?That's nasty.

Great in a medical emergency when you're out of rubbing alcohol.

He must not be able to catch in a route. He's been around too long to have not made it to the next level as a receiver.

I think, from the teams that he's been on, if he had something we would have seen it in 5 years.

He still has speed. Last year when he was on the 49ers everyone said he was the fastest player on the squad. His punt return abilities show that he has a knack for running once he has the ball, so you would think that passing to him would make sense, I never witnessed him having problems catching the ball, something Miami fans said he did quit regularly.

Most GM's and coaches are so head strong about what they determine what a players place on the team should be. The 49ers were determined that Ginn would only return punts, yet it shows that his punt return average improves in proportion with the number of passing plays he is utilized on.

At least he does, that's a start.
