Jordan Shipley Re-Signed By Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars have announced the re-signing of receiver Jordan Shipley.  I was intrigued when the Jaguars did not tender Shipley as a restricted free agent this offseason, therefore letting him hit the open market.  Shipley was easily the third best receiver for the Jaguars during the 2012 season and was proving to be a competent slot and fourth receiver with sure hands.  Shipley’s development and play helped alleviate the loss of Laurent Robinson to concussions.

Shipley had the lowest drop rate of all receivers for the Jaguars and was quickly becoming a reliable target.  I liked his play from 2012 and think that if he can return to the kind of receiver he was his rookie season (52 receptions, 600 yards, three touchdowns) then the Jaguars will be in good shape moving forward.

With Shipley’s re-signing the Jaguars now have a strong trio of receivers with Justin Blackmon, Cecil Shorts III, and Shipley.

    If you haven’t paid attention to B&T much, I was quite pleased with Shipley’s performance in 2012 and couldn’t be happier to have him back.

    Love this site. Great job. Shipley is a nice pickup. I wouldn’t mind spending money on a RT, but otherwise I am pleased, especially if we can bring back Greg Jones. He’s my favorite player along with MJD. One more year of destructive running, please.

      Completely agree, on both Shipley and Jones. Let’s wrap this up and bring on the draft!

      Thanks! Couldn’t agree more!
