Jordan Shipley WR JAC 9 Months
Former Bengals WR Jordan Shipley announced his retirement from the NFL in January.
Shipley, a 2010 third-round pick of the Bengals, posted a promising 52/600/3 line as a rookie. But he tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus two games into the 2011 season and never recovered, getting released during 2012 training camp. Shipley has signed on with the Outdoor Channel as an occasional host of hunting shows.

The Patriots worked out free agent WRs Jordan Shipley, LaQuan Williams and Devon Wylie on Tuesday.
The Pats also worked out TE Brandon Barden. It's possible the Patriots are looking to make a move with Danny Amendola's (concussion) status up in the air, but they may also be just updating their emergency list.

Jaguars waived/released WR Jordan Shipley, DB Antwon Blake, TE Brett Brackett, OL Dan Gerberry, FB Lonnie Pryor, and LB Andy Studebaker.
In addition to previously mentioned Kyle Love, these players go to make room for Jacksonville's league-high seven waiver claims. Shipley is now going on 28 years old. He was beaten out for the slot receiver job by Ace Sanders.

Jaguars.com believes Jordan Shipley will likely be the team's slot receiver this season.
Shipley was signed off the street prior to Week 12 last season, and he immediately contributed by catching 23 passes for 244 yards and one touchdown in six games with Chad Henne tossing him the ball. He'll have to earn it, but he'll be flanked by Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts.

Jaguars re-signed WR Jordan Shipley to a two-year, $1.315 million contract.
Shipley's status had been murky, but his two-year deal has finally been confirmed. Team observers were surprised when Shipley wasn't tendered a contract as a restricted free agent, but the Jags got him back at half the price of the $1.32 million low tender. The former third-round pick has proven to be a low-impact player, but will likely get a chance to lock-down slot duties in camp.

Jaguars declined to tender restricted free agents DE George Selvie, FB Brock Bolen, LB Kyle Bosworth, TE Zach Potter, C John Estes, and WR Jordan Shipley, making them all unrestricted free agents.
The Florida Times Union had reported the Jaguars would likely tender Shipley and Potter, but the paper clearly has no read on new GM David Caldwell's intentions. Shipley, 27, is the biggest name of the group and could generate some interest in the second or third waves of free agency as a slot receiver.

The Jaguars are expected to tender an offer to restricted free agent WR Jordan Shipley.
Shipley was signed as a free agent in Week 12 last season, and he went on to catch 23 passes for 244 yards and a touchdown in six games as a slot receiver. He'll be a candidate to retain that role if Laurent Robinson (concussions) isn't healthy.

Jaguars WR Jordan Shipley caught seven balls for 51 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 17 loss to Tennessee.
Signed in late November off the street, 27-year-old Shipley wound up appearing in six games with Jacksonville, securing 23 passes for 244 yards and the one score. Early-career knee woes sapped Shipley's value around the league at the time, but he bounced back late this season to show he's healthy again and can be a productive slot receiver. Shipley is an exclusive rights free agent in 2013, so he can be cheaply retained to compete for a roster spot in next year's training camp.

Jordan Shipley caught five passes for a team-high 82 yards in Jacksonville's Week 16 loss to the Patriots.
Shipley was targeted ten times on the afternoon, but he dropped a couple of catch-able balls late in the game that could have provided an even better-looking stat line. Shipley will handle slot duties again in Week 17 versus the Titans, and as an exclusive rights free agent after the season, he'll look to make a lasting impression.

Jaguars signed WR Jordan Shipley.
FB Will Ta'ufo'ou was waived in a corresponding move. Shipley will give the Jags an alternative to Aaron Ross on punt returns but is unlikely to contribute on offense.
