Former Ohio State great and 14-year NFL veteran Ted Ginn Jr. retired from football Friday.
The wide receiver made the announcement at the same place he began his football career: at Glenville High School in Cleveland, where he starred playing under his father, coach Ted Ginn Sr.
Ginn Jr. had a productive and long NFL career as a deep threat at wide receiver, totaling 412 receptions for 5,742 yards and 33 touchdowns.
At Ohio State, Ginn racked up 135 receptions for 1,943 yards and 15 touchdowns, but he stood out even more on special teams, where he totaled eight return touchdowns.
He also scored seven touchdowns on returns during his pro career.
“I’ve dedicated my entire life to football until now,” Ginn said. “I’m going out in peace. … On my own terms, not forced out.”
Ginn, 36, played for six different NFL teams: Miami (2007-09), San Francisco (2010-12), Carolina (2013, 2015-16), Arizona (2014), New Orleans (2017-19) and Chicago (2020).
In 2020, he appeared in just six games (no starts) for the Chicago Bears, catching three balls for 40 yards.
