Shipley is returning from a major knee injury that he suffered in Sept. 2011; the injury limited his effectiveness in Bengals camp and ultimately resulted in his release.

Shipley caught 52 passes for 600 yards and three touchdowns for the Bengals in 2010; he appeared in 15 games that season, two of which he started. The knee injury last season limited him to just two games and a total of four receptions.

Shipley is entering his third NFL season.
