Jaguars re-sign Jordan Shipley

The Jaguars officially announced the re-signing of receiver Jordan Shipley on Thursday.

Shipley, who was non-tendered by Jacksonville in restricted free agency, caught 23 passes for 244 yards and two TDs in six games last season for the club.

Shipley, 27, was a third-round pick of the Bengals in 2010. He caught 52-600-3 as a rookie as a slot receiver in a receiving corps that included Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens, but he missed most of his second season with a knee injury, and Cincinnati let him go last summer. Shipley appeared in one game with Tampa Bay in 2012 before landing with Jacksonville.

Shipley (6-0, 188) will compete for one of the Jaguars’ roster spots beyond primary receivers Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon.

  1. This guy was a great addition to the team last year! He is going to be a beast in the slot with Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon dominating on the outside!

    Great move Jags for not bringing in some overpriced accomplished WR like Wallace, Jennings or Welker! Keeping this guy from the 2-14 team last year will prove to be the smart move! Go Jags!!!

  2. “…will compete for one of the Jaguars’ roster spots beyond primary receivers Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon.”

    2 established starters at WR? Been waiting over 7 years for that…

  3. As a bengals fan I like Shipley but he’s gotta stay healthy. Not really a game changer but he’ll pick up a couple clutch 1st downs. Solid pick up

  4. I thought he played pretty good last year. Hopefully his knee will be even better going into the second year after surgery. I’m happy with this move. Go Jags.

    I hope you are right, but “dominating, and beast” to describe the Jaguars passing attack is a pretty big jump. The first responder said “Solid”, I say we start there, and work our way up.
