Ted Ginn opens up on joining the Saints

(WVUE) -

New Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn, Jr. comes to New Orleans as Brandin Cooks exits to New England. Cooks expressed frustration about his role in the offense last season. Ginn sounds like a man that will have no such complaint.

"That's all I want to be is a factor, that's it," Ginn said. "I don't have to be the superstar. I don't have to be the guy to catch every pass on every down."

Ginn has always been able to fly. His top end speed makes him a deep threat on offense. He also shines on special teams. For his career, Ginn has seven returns for touchdowns and wants to share that skillset with the Saints.

"I've always been a punt returner," he said. "It's something that I take pride to do. That's something that is me. I will fight for that position, no doubt about it."

At 31, and 11 years in, Ginn knows he's on the back end of his football life but also believes his new quarterback can slow down his exit for at least a couple of more years.

"Drew Brees is the type of guy that can expand your career," Ginn said. "That's what it's all about being able to put a bunch more years together to fight for different types of goals and the main goal is the Super Bowl."
