Deion Sanders has harsh evaluation of Carolina Panthers' Ted Ginn [NFL Network]

Wide receiver Ted Ginn and the Carolina Panthers have had a pretty good season. The NFC number one seed went 15-1 in the regular season, and the 30-year-old played his part towards this great achievement.

Ginn had 44 receptions for 739 yards and ten touchdowns, averaging 16.8 yards per catch. This has been his best season in his nine-year career in terms of average yards per catch and touchdowns scored.

Many will cite Cam Newton as the reason why he is having his best season since 2013 and 2008, but the quarterback still has to have the confidence to pass to the wide receiver to make these numbers occur, so you have to give Ginn some credit too.

However, not everyone shares the same confidence in Ginn as Newton does, especially NFL Network's Deion Sanders.

He said, according to the NFL Network Twitter account: "Ted Ginn has really matured. I wouldn't drop my baby out of a burning building to him, but I really do like him."

A brutal evaluation considering what he has managed to help the Panthers achieve this season, but you can see why the NFL Hall of Famer has come to that conclusion if you look at Ginn's history in the league. He simply hasn't been consistent enough across his career.

This season was the first time the 30-year-old has had a year of 40+ receptions and 600+ receiving yards since his 2008 season with the Miami Dolphins. He's been with the San Francisco 49ers, the Panthers, and the Arizona Cardinals since then but has failed to make an impact.

Maybe Ginn could change a lot of people's minds, especially Sanders' mind, if he was to catch the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl this season, if the Panthers make it there.
