Jordan Shipley. Found a home?

The Jacksonville Jaguars quietly signed Jordan Shipley on November 20th, 2012. No fanfare, no screams of "playoffs!" from their fans. Simply as wide receiver depth, filling in as their 6th WR body for special teams work, while starter Laurent Robinson continued to miss playing time suffering through concussions and injuries in his 2012 season.

Next, emerging Jaguars wide receiver threat Cecil Shorts went down from an injury. Shipley got a chance to contribute outside of special teams in his 2nd game with the Jaguars.

During his 3rd game with the Jaguars, his playing time increased a little more versus the Jets. Posting 5 receptions and a 71% reception ratio, a case could be made for Shipley outperforming Justin Blackmon last week. Shipley pulled down 5 receptions vs Blackmon's 6 receptions, he caught 71% of his targeted passes while Blackmon only managed a 50% reception rate. Shipley had the Jaguars long reception of the day at 28 yards vs Blackmon's long of 14 yards. Shipley averaged 11 yard per catch while Blackmon clocked in at 9.5 yards per catch.

The Jaguars are a mess, while most of these stats come from garbage time versus the Jets, yet it does raise a simple question, "Has Jordan Shipley found his next NFL home in Jacksonville?"
