According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, the San Francisco 49ers" target="_blank">San Francisco 49ers have acquired wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a fifth round pick in next week's draft.

Ginn, who will be entering his fourth year in the NFL, was the ninth overall pick in the 2007 draft by Miami.

In his brief career, Ginn has amassed 128 receptions, 3,698 yards and 10 total touchdowns.

He's made his name as a return man, returning two kickoffs for touchdowns in a Week 8 game against the Jets.

Ginn became expendable when the Dolphins dealt for former Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall earlier in the week, and his name had surfaced in trade rumors even before Marshall was acquired.

This is a huge addition for the 49ers, as they were heading into the draft with the intent of picking up a return specialist somewhere along the way.

Ginn instantly fills that need, and also gives them a serviceable receiving option opposite Michael Crabtree.

The fifth-round pick reportedly acquired by the Dolphins will be the 145th overall selection.
