Ted Ginn Jr. is returning to the field for his 14th NFL season, but it will be with a new team.
The former Ohio State wide receiver has agreed to a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears, according to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Ginn spent the last three seasons with the New Orleans Saints, in which he caught 100 passes for 1,417 yards and eight touchdowns.
The Bears will be the sixth NFL team for Ginn, who has caught 409 career passes for 5,702 yards and 33 touchdowns since he was selected by the Miami Dolphins with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft.
While Ginn's production dipped in his final two seasons with the Saints, the 35-year-old former Buckeye star has shown he still has the speed to be a weapon in an NFL receiving corps. He'll likely factor in as a third or fourth receiver, behind starters Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller, for the Bears in 2020.
He becomes the only former Ohio State player on the Bears' roster.
