Finally. Jordan Shipley, a hard-to-not-like wide receiver out of Texas has found a home (at least for now) when he signed with the Jaguars Tuesday afternoon.
Former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jordan Shipley has finally found a team to take him on when the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Shipley on Tuesday, according to John Oehser with Jaguars.com (he broke it first).
Shipley was drafted in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft by the Bengals. Unfortunately his Bengals career ended quicker than a camera's flash, tearing an ACL and MCL against the Denver Broncos on Week Two during his sophomore season.
Briefly catching on with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Shipley largely became cannon fodder for a punt return unit that sorely needed help earlier this year. During three returns against the Dallas Cowboys, he returned one for 10 yards, fair caught another and fumbled the third. That led to his release after only one game.
Shipley did workout with the Houston Texans earlier this year.
