Default Steelers' Shipley signs with Eagles

Steelers' Shipley signs with Eagles
Monday, January 11, 2010
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Center A.Q. Shipley, a Coraopolis native who hoped to follow in Mike Webster's footsteps with the Steelers, signed with the Philadelphia Eagles today.

Shipley, who started 39 games at Penn State and made several All-American teams, was drafted in the seventh round by the Steelers last year. However, he did not make the team and spent the season on their practice squad.

The Steelers tried to sign Shipley to a contract for 2010 last week but he balked and was the only member of their eight-man practice squad who did not re-sign.

No surprise. Not sure if Shipley would have been a big asset for the black n' gold in the future anyway.

That's a shame...I thought that kid had huge potential despite his shorter build. I would have loved to see him get his shot here.

Good for him. The NFC East is a good spot for him where he can fight for the backup job and only have to deal with one div opponent that has a NT.

He'll probably start for them for a decade. He's a determined little Rex.
