Tampa, FL – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers re-signed wide receiver Jordan Shipley on Tuesday.
Shipley originally signed with Tampa in late August after being cut by Cincinnati during the preseason, but was cut by the Bucs in early September during their final roster decisions.
A third-year player out of Texas, Shipley caught 52 passes for 600 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie with the Bengals in 2010, before tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last season during Week 2.
To make room on the roster for Shipley, the Bucs parted ways with guard/tackle Derek Hardman, whom they had signed last week in the wake of injuries to left guard Carl Nicks and right tackle Jeremy Trueblood.
Additionally, the Bucs signed defensive end D.J. Bryant to the practice squad and released linebacker J.K. Schaffer from the practice squad.
