Bears reportedly sign veteran WR Ted Ginn Jr. to a one-year contract

The Bears aren't done getting faster, apparently. 

According to Ian Rapoport, the team has signed veteran wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. to a one-year contract: 

Ginn Jr.'s latest stop was in New Orleans, where he spent three seasons and put up 1417 yards with 100 receptions and eight touchdowns. Over his 13-year, four-team career, Ginn Jr. has 5702 yards and 33 touchdowns while averaging over 13 yards per reception. Not only does he give the Bears a much-needed vertical passing threat, but the veteran wide receiver is also durable, playing in at least 13 games in all but one season (2018). He also has experience returning kickoffs and punts, although he was hardly used as a returner in New Orleans. 

The move just emphasizes Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy's desire to bring more speed to their offense in 2020. He'll head to camp looking to compete with (and, realistically, help develop) fifth-round pick Darnell Mooney, who the Bears traded up to get in last weekend's NFL Draft.
