With Preston Parker ailing, Bucs re-sign receiver Jordan Shipley



The Bucs, reacting to an injury suffered by receiver Preston Parker on Sunday, have re-signed Jordan Shipley.

After spending two weeks with the team in the preseason, Shipley was released at final roster cuts. But the Bucs liked him as a slot option, and with Parker being the No. 1 slot receiver, the Bucs are opting for Shipley to create depth there.

Shipley likely won't have to step in immediately and contribute. Sammie Stroughter remains on the roster and filled in for Parker after he left the game.

To make room on the roster, the Bucs released offensive lineman Derek Hardman. He had returned to the roster just last week after being released a week before that.
