    Bengals cut WR Jordan Shipley.



    The kid is a talented receiver.

    Someone will give him a shot.

    Eh gotta wonder why they'd be willing just to let him go when they already opted to not try to keep Jerome Simpson. Red flag.

    Probably just no room and figured they would let him try and catch on with some other team.

    Armon Binns, Brandon Tate, Marvin Jones, and Mohammed Sanu are all jockying for the #2 receiver spot. Andrew Hawkins is their slot guy and they also have Vidal Hazleton, Ryan Whalen and two other rookie receivers.

    There was just no way he was going to beat out any of those.

    I also read that his knee is still bothering him.

    I thought they put him on waivers because he tore his ACL or something. If it's the case, I wouldn't mind picking him off waivers, and IRing him so he can compete for a job next season. The guy has talent.

    We should claim him. Put McBean on IR. Then we could IR Shipley and get him ready door 2013.

    It is indeed because of his ACL. He hurt it in Week 2 of last season and apparently it's still bothering him.

    If hes had an entire year to heal and its still bothering him, thats a red flag. ACLs are so common these days that if there is any lingering issues its probably something serious, not unlike foxworth who never recovered.

    Nothing wrong with giving it a shot, he wont be taking up a roster spot this year if we claimed him.

    Apparently he can't cut and doesn't have that burst; knee still not quite healed. Would be worth giving him a look and a physical

    Re: Bengals cut WR Jordan Shipley.

    He tore ACLand MCL

    Just over 5' 11" , his Texas Proday 40 was 4.54

    56 catches in a year and 1.? games (don't know when in game 2 he went down) so averaged 3+ catches/game
    Was due to make $490,000 this year.

    I don't know if the cap will take a squeeze, yeah we got room but I'm feeling part of that room wants to be held in reserve for a possible vet RB and maybe TE. So my issues are $$
    I wouldn't be averse to stockpiling him, but can't see it at this point with the WR depth that we never seemed to really have before we drafted Torrey/Tandon and LaQ appeared.
    To understand paranoid people better, follow them around.

    Depending on his contract id agree. If hes only got a year left or so.

    Side note this new rule about waiving before IRd is a little odd. Really ties a team up pre first cut if i am understanding correctly. The fact that another team can sign and IR them but you cant just seems unfair. With that said i dont think weve seen that taken advantage of yet either.

    Even though Lardarius Webb and Dominique Foxworth played during the season following their ACL injuries, they weren't the 'same player', sort of speak. I figured that Shipley hadn't recovered yet.

    Love love love Shipley!

    Tough as nails and a great route runner. Love to see the Ravens hide him away for a year.
