The NFL confirmed on Twitter that the Chicago Bears and free-agent wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. agreed to terms on a one-year contract Thursday, giving Chicago the speedy veteran receiver they have coveted for quite some time.

"I've still got a few more years left in me," the 35-year-old told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler on April 15.

Ginn joined the New Orleans Saints in 2017 and hauled in 30 receptions for 421 yards with two touchdowns in 16 regular-season games last year, with nine starts. He’s also had six carries for 44 yards in the past two seasons.

He was drafted ninth overall in 2007 by Miami, where he remained through 2009. He also played for the San Francisco 49ers (2010-2012), Arizona Cardinals (2014) and Carolina Panthers (2013, 2015-2016) before landing in New Orleans.

Ginn should help boost a Bears passing attack that was ranked 25th in the NFL last season at 205.7 yards per game. He joins Allen Robinson II and Anthony Miller to help make up a veteran receiving crew that also got a shot in the arm when Chicago signed veteran All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham to a two-year contract in March.

They certainly got instantly faster with the signing of Ginn.

The Bears have added three WR in the past week. Here are their 40 times:

Darnell Mooney: 4.35
Trevor Davis: 4.42
Ted Ginn Jr: 4.28

Matt Nagy wanted speed. He got it.

Ginn’s best season was in 2015, when he hauled in 44 receptions for 739 yards and 10 TDs in 15 games while helping the Panthers to a 15-1 regular season before they lost to Denver in Super Bowl 50. He also eclipsed 700 yards receiving in 2008, 2016 and 2017.
