    Thomas Kinkade Wait for my Tony Danza Series!

    Ted Ginn Jr. is fast.

    The New Orleans Saints obviously knew that long before the veteran wide receiver signed with the team in March, but coach Sean Payton still appreciated a reminder about Ginn's speed a few weeks ago.

    "I got a text from Dan Dalrymple, our strength coach, during the offseason, phase one when these guys were running 200s," Payton said Thursday. "He just sent me TGIF. It was on Friday.

    "I'm like, 'What is this about?' And he said, 'Ted Ginn is fast.'"

    With the Saints trading Brandin Cooks to the New England Patriots this offseason, Ginn should have plenty of opportunities to show off his wheels in 2017.

    Ginn's performance the past few years led the Saints to think he could be a productive player in their offense. He eclipsed 700 receiving yards each of the past two seasons with the Carolina Panthers. He caught 10 touchdowns in 2015 and four in 2016, too.

    But, with Ginn already around the team for a couple months, his fellow wide receivers have already been impressed by something that has nothing to do with his on-field skills.

    Sean Payton promises Saints pedicures after fourth straight win

    The New Orleans Saints earned an extra perk with their fourth straight victory on Sunday: free pedicures.
    Saints receiver Ted Ginn Jr., who caught seven passes for 141 yards Sunday, chimed in from a nearby locker, "I'm getting mine!"

    "Oh, I'm a pedicure guy ... it's part of my swag," Ginn said. "I need to put my feet up in that hot water with all this running he got me doing."

    He still has that speed that when he catches a ball behind a defense you can safely say "GONE" the moment he hauls it in

    New Orleans Saints 2018 roster rankings: No. 15 Ted Ginn Jr.
    Updated Jul 2; Posted Jul 2
    Ted Ginn brings a broom to post-game scrum, talks about sweeping Panthers

    By Larry Holder, | The Times-Picayune

    We're ranking the New Orleans Saints' top players for the seventh consecutive offseason. We'll publish a new player each weekday as we inch closer to training camp.

    Seven players from last year's list no longer reside on the team's roster: No. 7 Kenny Vaccaro, No. 9 Willie Snead, No. 10 Zach Strief, No. 11 Adrian Peterson, No. 13 Nick Fairley, No. 14 Delvin Breaux, No. 15 Dannell Ellerbe. And a handful from last year's list didn't make the 2018 version.

    That's actually a positive for the Saints.

    It's the first time in a few years where I struggled to cut down the list to 20 viable candidates. As opposed to the last couple of offseasons where I nearly couldn't find enough capable players to field a top 20 list.

    Predicting Nos. 1 and 2 on the 2018 version should be no brainers. The rest of the list should make for a healthy debate:

    No. 15 Ted Ginn Jr.

    Last year's rank: 20

    Season: 12; Age: 33; Height: 5-11; Weight: 180

    The Saints attacked a need for a deep threat in the passing game for Drew Brees immediately when the NFL's free agency doors opened last offseason. The veteran wide receiver filled the role about as well as Saints fans could have hoped.

    Ginn hauled in 53 receptions for 787 receiving yards and four touchdowns. He also averaged 14.8 yards per catch, which ranked him among the top 20 in the league.

    the 33-year-old receiver also fought off his reputation for inconsistently catching the football.

    According to the NFL's "Next Gen Stats," Ginn ranked third in the league among qualified pass catchers in catch percentage by successfully snagging 75.71 of his targets (53 receptions on 70 targets). Only Benjamin Watson and Golden Tate possessed a higher catch percentage.

    For comparison's sake, Ginn caught 54 passes on 95 targets during his final year in Carolina in 2016.

    The Saints acquired receivers like Cameron Meredith in free agency and Tre'Quan Smith in the draft this offseason. Yet Ginn should walk into the 2018 season with the same role as last year.

    He'll be New Orleans' primary threat in the deep passing game, but he'll also find his fair share of action on the intermediate routes. He became one of the best under-the-radar free agent acquisitions last offseason and should continue to thrive with Brees throwing him the football.
