Ted Ginn signs with Cardinals, Captain Munnerlyn to the Vikings

New, comments

Ted Ginn and Captain Munnerlyn have signed with the Arizona Cardinals and Minnesota Vikings, respectively.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have actually missed out on two players for the first time since free agency opened two days ago. I'm a little shocked, here. The Arizona Cardinals announced the signing of wide receiver/returner Ted Ginn to a three-year deal. Ginn had visited the Bucs and would have been a good fit as a returner and role player on offense.

Meanwhile, Ian Rapoport reports that the Minnesota Vikings have signed cornerback Captain Munnerlyn, who was scheduled to visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Munnerlyn was a minor target for the Bucs last year, too, but instead re-signed with the Carolina Panthers. He would likely have been a nickel/slot cornerback for the Bucs.

The Bucs aren't done adding players, though. They've had Charles Tillman, Evan Dietrich-Smith and Emmanuel Sanders in for visits, while Walter Thurmond is scheduled to come over as well. Clearly they want to address receiver depth, and add a cornerback along with an interior offensive lineman. They've also been linked with Steve Smith, although he's more likely to sign with the Baltimore Ravens. We'll see who they end up adding to their team, but they're not done yet.
