|While it was likely that many wrote off Ginn as a fantasy option at wide receiver a few years ago, there can be little doubt that it is now time to put the final nail in that coffin. Ginn will need to beat out second-year player Kyle Williamsto win a roster spot and even if that happens, he will sit behind at least three players on the depth chart in Michael Crabtree, Randy Moss and Mario Manningham.

Saints get Patriots 1st round pick in 2017
|Continuing their aggressive offseason blitz, the New England Patriots have agreed to trade their 2017 first-round draft choice to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for receiver Brandin Cooks, sources tell ESPN's Dianna Russini.
The first-round pick is No. 32 overall, the last selection of the round. The Patriots also will trade a third-round pick (No. 103) to New Orleans and receive the Saints' fourth-round pick (No. 118), sources tell Russini. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: This deal was rumored over the last couple days and now it's complete. The juicy part is CB Malcolm Butler remains in New England. The signing of Ted Ginn Jr. made a Cooks trade more likely and now the Patriots have acquired one of most explosive young receivers in the league. Michael Thomas and Willie Snead see their fantasy value inflated in New Orleans while Julian Edelman's value will take a hit in New England.

New Orleans adds deep threat

FF Today's Take: Are the Saints swapping speedsters? Ted Ginn brings a vertical deep threat (and drops) to the Saints passing game but this move furthers strengthens rumors that Brandin Cooks will be traded. The Titans and Patriots have both expressed interest in the current Saints wide receiver.
