Jordan Shipley Contract: Buccaneers WR Will Earn $490,000 In 2012 And $575,000 In 2013

New Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Jordan Shipley is coming off a major knee injury in 2011, but he isn't going to cost the Bucs much money if things don't work out.

The move is a low-cost, low-risk proposition for the Bucs. Shipley is just midway through his rookie contract, slated to earn $490,000 this season and $575,000 in 2013. The Bucs would have few, if any, financial consequences if Shipley fails to make their final roster.

Tampa Bay claimed Shipley off of waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday. Shipley was limited to just two games in 2011 because of the knee injury. In 2010, he caught 52 passes for 600 yards and three touchdowns.

To make room on the roster for Shipley, the Buccaneers released wide receiver Wallace Wright.
