A former New Orleans Saints wide receiver rejoined the team to help out at minicamp, and his influence is appreciated for current Saints wide receivers.

Ted Ginn Jr. is often listed among first-round wide receivers whose careers didn't exactly provide the greatest return on investment. Fortunately for the New Orleans Saints, they didn't use that capital, and Ginn actually had arguably his best career years in the Big Easy, catching 100 balls on the dot for 1,417 yards and eight touchdowns in the 36 games he played between the 2017 - 2019 seasons.

Now, Ginn is back in the Bayou to work with the young crop of Saints receivers during minicamp, and one in particular is greatly appreciative.

Like Ginn, Chris Olave is a product of Ohio State, and the young Saints stud noted that Ginn was someone that he looked up to throughout his football playing career.

Olave turned a lot of heads during his rookie season, and appears ready to turn more in his second season. Throughout OTAs, Olave's connection with new starting quarterback Derek Carr started to blossom, and now that minicamp has started, it's already starting to bloom

To put it simply, Olave has looked nothing short of marvelous so far in this limited offseason action, and those around the organization are thrilled to see what the second-year receiver has in store next. This should be music to the ears of Saints fans as well, especially considering that the curious case of Michael Thomas seems to be continuing. At the very least, the Saints (and Carr) have AT LEAST one sure-fire stud pass-catcher they can lean on.

With Olave having the chance to work with someone that he has looked up to for a while, it almost looks like something has been unlocked there, and he looks hungry. As you can guess, Olave is ready to eat.

Fortunately for the New Orleans Saints fans, as Ted Ginn can also attest to, he seems up for Cajun cooking
