One of the Carolina Panthers involved in the great wide receiver purge of 2014 is coming home.

Ted Ginn Jr. has re-signed with the Panthers after a one-year stay with the Arizona Cardinals. Ginn made the news official on -- where else? -- Instagram.

"I'm back Bank of America," the caption read.

The Panthers announced Monday that Ginn signed a two-year contract. The Charlotte Observer reported that the 29-year-old wideout also received interest from the Titans, 49ers and Browns after being released by the Cardinals.

Ginn was well set up as Bruce Arians' No. 3 receiver in Arizona before rookie John Brown essentially removed him from the game plan. Ginn was unable to add a spark on special teams, either, averaging a career-low 19.0 yards on 22 kickoff returns.

He joins a Carolina group still trying to build a supporting cast around Cam Newton. Ginn had a career-high five touchdowns in 2013 in Carolina; the Panthers would be thrilled if he can match that type of production in his return.
