Ted Ginn a knee jerk reaction? Hardly.
when you consider we traded him for Nolan Carroll I think it was a little rushed. Ginn would've at least given Miami speed on the outside in 4 WR sets and excitement in the return game...what has Carroll done so far?
Nolan Carroll is a solid prospect that our coaches are developing. He's contributing on special teams in the mean time. He could very well develop into a solid nickel corner for us, maybe a starter if someone gets hurt. If I'm not mistaken he was a top prospect before he got hurt his final year at Maryland. He's got a lot of talent and I think he could really help our secondary down the road.
As for Ted Ginn Jr., well, he really didn't work out the way many fans would have liked. He never really developed as a top wideout. That being said, I'm like many of you and I too wish we could have found a way to keep him. But secondary was a major area of concern that our staff wanted to address this season so they opted to trade him for a defensive prospect. I'm not saying it was a great trade, but I do see what they are trying to do with that move. Only time and Nolan Carroll will decide whether it was a good move.
