How Ginn fits in Chicago

Ginn, 34, will provide a downfield threat for Mitchell Trubisky or Nick Foles or whomever’s playing quarterback in Chicago next season.

Ginn joins a shallow wide receiver depth chart headlined by Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller. The Bears also drafted Tulane speed specialist Darnell Mooney in the fifth round of last week’s NFL draft. Mooney clocked a 4.38 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine.
