Buccaneers Giving Jordan Shipley A Chance
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are giving Jordan Shipley a chance to revive his NFL career just a few days after the 26-year-old wide receiver was waived by the Cincinnati Bengals.
The former Texas star was the AFC's leading rookie receiver in 2010 before tearing ligaments in his left knee in Cincinnati's second game last year.
The Bengals thought Shipley had lost a step when they brought him back this summer, but that was not apparent to the Bucs in his first workout Tuesday.
The Bucs, who have been erratic on special teams, will give Shipley a look as a punt returner and a slot receiver.
