Newton: Ginn among league's fastest





From wire reports
August 22, 2016


Cam Newton threw for 162 yards and led scoring drives on two of his four series Saturday and the Carolina Panthers defeated the host Tennessee Titans, 26-16, in a preseason game.

Newton went 8-of-12 before leaving midway through the second quarter. He opened the game by leading a 93-yard drive that included a 61-yard completion to Ted Ginn Jr. of Glenville High School and Ohio State.

Ginn caught Newton's pass about 10 yards downfield. Antwon Blake missed a tackle as soon as the catch was made, then the 31-yearold Ginn outraced the other Titans to the end zone.

''He's probably one of the fastest guys in the NFL,'' Newton said. ''That's not a reach. He is.
Of course they will [mention] his age, but this is what I say. .... I feel as if when Ted comes to Carolina, this is only team that probably used him in the receiver position the way he wants to and is supposed to.

''I think so much of his career he's been labeled a return specialist, and in the return game, you may have one or maybe two opportunities to prove yourself, so that leaves a lot of tread on the tires for him.''
