Default Bengals Waive Shipley

Can he be as good or better than K-Dub if healthy? I'd hope we take a look at him. He should be close to being healthy. I saw he was dressed out in last nights game. Thoughts?

I dont think so. Jordan is alot smaller than KW. Jordan might work in the slot but I think we already have more than enough young WR's to fill that spot. Especially in week 2.

I'd give him a look see. He's got more NFL receptions than anyone behind AJ and K-Dub. He'd probably sign for min $$. I know they say that the rooks and Jean are doing well but I'd like to see another "experienced" guy.

Default Re: Bengals Waive Shipley

If we weren't 5 deep at receiver I'd bring him in, but there's no room for him. AJ, Kevin, Martin, and Jean aren't going anywhere. You would have to be willing to part with Jean for Shipley. Is anyone really ready to do that?

I love Shipley's game and toughness so I have a hard time believing he won't find work. Tampa was just looking to fill a slot role with Demps. While Jordan doesn't have the same speed, I think he'd be awesome with the Bucs offense.

Shipley > Lestar Jean. Bring him in. He can be used in the return game too.

Default Jordan Shipley?

With K-Mart looking capable of pushing KW on the outside, why not nab Jordan Shipley and take a look at him in the slot? The guy was pretty awesome at Texas and during his rookie year. Definitely an upgrade over Jeff Maehl...

Plus... I never mind bringing in boys from home!

What do you guys think?

If it's true that Shipley tore two ligaments in his knee last year, then no thank you. It generally takes more time to get back to form than what he's had.

And you still want to sign him? The Bengals saw him for 1 practice and cut him to avoid an injury settlement. He is damaged goods.

Default Re: Jordan Shipley?

There's 20-plus teams ahead of us in terms of waiver claims. One of those teams is Miami. If he's healthy/mostly healthy, I'm thinking there's a decent chance that any decision the Texans make regarding Jordan Shipley will end up being irrelevant, and if he's not healthy, I don't want to mess with him.

While what you say may be mostly on target, I've got to think that if he played in two preseason games (and was cleared to practice over two weeks ago) that they saw him for more than one practice before they let him go.

Camp contracts don't cost anything in the grand scheme of things, so yeah I'd bring him in. He has more NFL experience than every other WR we have besides KW and AJ. See what he's got if we can, and if he can't make it, cut him in two weeks. Very little risk here, assuming he clears waivers.
