The Bengals announced Friday that they have waived WR Jordan Shipley and PK Thomas Weber.
Shipley, a third-year NFL veteran, has been with the Bengals since being drafted in the third round in 2010.
He caught 52 passes for 600 yards with three touchdowns as a rookie but suffered a season-ending torn ACL in the Bengals' second game in 2011.
Weber, a first-year player from Arizona State, was with the Bengals in the 2011 preseason and was re-signed on Jan. 6, 2012.
The way we see it
Shipley, 26, had played little this preseason — with one catch on two targets — and the strong performances of rookie draft picks Mohamed Sanu and Marv Jones likely made him expendable.
