Bengals Reportedly Sign Longhorns WR Jordan Shipley and LB Roddrick Muckelroy

New, comments

The Cincinnati Bengals are closing in on this year's Training Camp, which stands less than two days away -- how does that sound? Oh, the football season is about to begin. Does that work? Does that sound like a song of angels rolling off the tongue? Along with the Terrell Owens waiting game, the Bengals are also working towards getting their final four draft picks signed on time.

And two more have signed on Tuesday.

According to the Enquirer's Joe Reedy, the Texas Longhorns wide receiver Jordan Shipley and linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy (who has a linebacker's name if there was one not named Skuta) "appear to be in the fold."

Aaron Wilson writes that Shipley's deal is a four-year contract worth $2.54 million. The base salary is the standard $1.79 million, meaning that the singing bonus is $757,000. No word just yet on Muckelroy's signing bonus.

Jermaine Gresham and Carlos Dunlap are the final two unsigned draft picks.
