Jordan Shipley heading back to Jaguars, per his Twitter

USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars appear to be bringing back wide receiver Jordan Shipley, according to Shipley's Twitter account.

After the release of Laurent Robinson, the Jaguars were looking a little thin at wide receiver outside of Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts III, but the return of Shipley gives the Jaguars a plug-in slot receiver in their offense. Shipley was picked up mid-season last year and quickly found himself in the lineup and was pretty productive.

Shipley finished up the 2012 season with 23 receptions for 244 yards and a touchdown in a part-time role, but will likely see his role increase going forward in the offense. Shipley was productive as a rookie for the Bengals in 2010 with 600 receiving yards, but was seemingly shuffled out of the lineup for other players and was released in 2012 after missing much of the 2011 season with a torn ACL.
