07:05 AM ET 07.29 | Ted Ginn Jr. is trying to take it slow with the Panthers, which isn't something that comes naturally to the speedster. "It's kind of hard to show slowness," Ginn said. The Panthers' first full-pads practice Sunday gave fans a look at Ginn's potential for big plays and his past problems. Ginn, who signed a one-year deal with the Panthers in March, made several tough catches and showed off his speed on a couple of deep routes. But he also dropped a Cam Newton pass that him squarely in the hands. ... "A lot of guys see me as a punt returner or a specialist," Ginn said following Sunday's practice. "Here they were just, 'Hey man, just come in and show us what you've got.'" Ginn and Domenik Hixon, another free agent acquisition, look to be the leading candidates for the No. 3 receiver spot.
