Trade Ginn


I know Jeff Ireland likes Ted Ginn, and we can also make the argument that he has value as a kick returner and deep threat complementary receiver. But the argument has also been made that he does not have the toughness to run routes between the hashmarks. Also, his hands were very horrible last year. I don't know what kind of value he has on the market, but if the Dolphins decide to draft Dexter McCluster, hopefully they will be able to trade Ted Ginn for something.

I think McCluster would be an excellent addition to the Dolphins. He is small at 5'8" and 170lbs, but Ginn is small too at 5'11" and 180lbs. However, McCluster is not afraid to get hit and has already said he wouldn't mind playing special teams (coverage or returning). I think he would be an excellent addition to the team and would provide an extra weapon for Henne out of the backfield. Here is his game against Tennessee:

This clip is of McCluster laying out Chad Jones of LSU:

So, I guess my question is, if Ted Ginn was traded for a draft pick that was used on Dexter McCluster, would you be for it or against it? Why or why not?

UPDATE: McCluster ran a 4.58. Valuewise, I wouldn't trade Ginn straight up for a draft pick to be used on McCluster. But I like McCluster's play way better. I have to go with DP3 Rollin and say I'd trade Camarillo for the pick to have McCluster. His playmaking ability is sick!
