Ted Ginn may have never lived up to his first-round pedigree but he's still in the league nearly seven years after the Dolphins selected him over Brady Quinn back in 2007. His latest stop: Arizona. Ginn and the Cardinals agreed to terms on a three-year deal Thursday, according to's Darren Urban.

The team also gave linebacker Matt Shaughnessy a two-year deal and parted ways with former third-round pick Dontay Moch.

Ginn, who played on a one-year deal with the Panthers in 2013 and caught 36 passes for 556 yards and five touchdowns, spent the first three years of his NFL career in Miami before spending the next three with the 49ers (including a Super Bowl appearance after the 2012 season).

Ginn is also a threat as a returner -- he has three career punt and kickoff returns for touchdowns.

In Arizona, he'll join a wide receivers corps that includes Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, and could have a chance to win the No. 3 job vacated by Andre Roberts, who signed with Redskins earlier this week.
