Shipley Waived

Post by Juice » Fri Aug 17, 2012 10:47 pm

The Bengals waived Shipley, their 2010 third-round draft pick, they announced today.

Shipley showed a lot of promise as a rookie, catching 52 passes for 600 yards and three touchdowns. But he suffered a torn ACL in Week Two of last season, and 11 months later his knee is still bothering him. Shipley has played in both of the Bengals’ preseason games but caught just one pass for four yards.

If a receiver-needy team wants Shipley, he’ll be available on waivers. If he can get back to full speed, he could be a good young addition to some team’s receiving corps.

Do you think he's worth a look?

No. I think that when Simspon returns from his suspension they are set at WR unless some great deal presents itself.

I'd take Shipley if he's ever back to 100% over any non-Harvin/Simpson receiver. That's for sure. And with Harvin's contract issues, and Simpson on a one year deal. If we have the room or can do something with him that won't impact the roster badly I wouldn't mind if they brought him in.

If Shipley was that good and had a knee injury only they would not be giving up on their 3rd round pick so easily. Believe it or not these coaches and GMs know a lot more than we do.
Take this to the bank, Jenkins fills in nicely as a #3 and will have a very good year (JUST LIKE PONDER).
