Shipley has played in 24 games with five starts since entering the NFL as a third-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010. He has 79 career receptions for 858 yards and four touchdowns along with seven career receptions of 25 yards or more. Shipley saw action in one game with Tampa Bay in 2012 before he was waived on Sept. 25.
The former Texas standout suffered a season-ending knee injury in week two of the 2011 season. As a rookie with the Bengals in 2010, he led all AFC rookies with 52 catches for 600 yards along with three touchdowns.
