Last season, Shipley tore his ACL and didn't seem to be 100 percent in the Bengals' first two preseason games this year; catching just one pass. However, he is just two years removed from a 52-catch season as a rookie where he gained 600 yards and three touchdowns primarily working in the slot.
The former Texas Longhorn will definitely get a chance to show what he can do during the final two preseason games for Tampa Bay. They obviously like his talent, or they wouldn't have put in a claim for him.
Shipley will be battling for that slot position primarily with Tiquan Underwood, who had a great training camp, and Preston Parker, who caught 40 balls for 554 yards and three touchdowns last season.
At Texas, Shipley was a standout receiver with quarterback Colt McCoy. He finished his collegiate career with 248 receptions for 3,191 yards and 33 touchdowns.
