Bengals today waived WR Jordan Shipley and K Thomas Weber

Worth a look? I thought this kid was going to be the next Wes Welker. Had 52 rec, 600 yds and 3 TDs his rookie year, then tore his ACL and MCL in week 2 last year and missed the season.

SO... identical to Gettis, a dude we might have to cut anyway.

um yeah gettis!

Ha yeah, those were pretty much the same stats Gettis put up his rookie year (37 rec, 508 yds, 3 TDs). Shipley was a 3rd round pick in 2010 and for the Bengals to cut him now, probably means his knee hasn't been healing well. We don't need two WRs with ACL issues, just thought it was interesting cause a lot of people were high on Shipley going into the 2010 draft.

never thought we'd be in a position to turn down a guy like that because of depth.

I was thinking the same thing. Have we ever had to say this about the Panthers and the WR position?

I would love to pick him up. If he works out great, if not, we slide him in on IR and give him a shot next year. Either way I say its a win for the panthers if we get him

Cut Armanti and sign this guy now!!! Since we cut Chris Manno, we've been violating Affrimative Action.

Hell yes! That is just what we need! Another ? To toss into the mix.

If the bangles cut him at this point in the preseason, what does that say? Didnt even make it to the first set of cuts? Bad news

With Hogan, Gettis, Beason, and Davis in residence, there is no more space in our long-term facility.

So no.

    • If nothing else that would mean more kicker jobs as guys like Lloyd would be in demand as a kick off specialist.
    • im generally ok with individual consumers boycotting but tbh im a little annoyed with companies boycotting. these businesses aren't benevolent and boycotting doesn't make their product more pure or their mode of production more ethical. i mean hey big deal ncaa, you moved your games. you're not taking much of a hit there but you get your positive press for your incredibly shitty business. like ok cool you hate the dumb law, i do too. maybe pay your employees before trying to stake out the moral high ground though??? meanwhile the nba moves it's all star game to louisiana where the largely black prison population still picks cotton on "former" slave plantations. hb2 is so mind numbingly stupid that it's easy to oppose without fear of having to sacrifice meaningful profits. im saving praise for companies that oppose oppressive institutions that aren't easy or profitable to oppose.
