Jaguars sign Jordan Shipley, waive Will Ta'ufo'ou

Al Messerschmidt

Jordan Shipley, who was released by both the Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers this year, signed a contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed wide receiver Jordan Shipley on Tuesday, and in a corresponding roster move, waived Will Ta'ufo'ou.

Shipley was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Shipley tore his ACL during Cincinnati's Week 2 game in 2011, and failed to make Cincinnati's roster this season.

After being released by the Bengals, Shipley signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but was one of Tampa Bay's final cuts this season. Shipley was re-signed by the Buccaneers, but was released just one week later, after fumbling a punt return in a game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Ta'ufo'ou was signed by the Jaguars on July 28, and was placed on Jacksonville's practice squad prior to the season. Ta'ufo'ou was promoted to the Jags' active roster, and has appeared in three games for the Jaguars, but the fullback did not receive a carry in any of the contests.

Shipley's main contributions for the Jaguars will likely come on special teams, but it's unknown exactly how Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey plans to utilize the wide receiver.
