Cincinnati, OH – The Cincinnati Bengals waived wide receiver Jordan Shipley on Friday.
Cincinnati selected Shipley in the third round of the 2010 draft and he led all AFC rookies with 52 receptions and 600 yards through 15 games, including four starts.
He also had three touchdowns that season, but suffered a torn ACL in the second game of 2011 and was attempting to come back this year.
The 26-year-old appeared in both of the Bengals' preseason games, but caught just one ball for four yards.
Cincinnati also released rookie kicker Thomas Weber, who missed field goals of 37 and 47 yards this preseason.
