(fifth among offensive linemen at the combine) and measured a 31-inch vertical jump (eighth among offensive linemen at the combine). He ran 7.46 in the 3 cone drill and 4.40 in the 20 yard shuttle (second and fifth, respectively, among offensive linemen at the combine). Shipley turned heads when he scored a 40 on the Wonderlic Test—double the average score for NFL draft prospects.We needed competition for Gino and a backup Center. This sounds good to me.

This is another "under the radar" signing by the FO. EXCELLENT job! This a very low cost addition that not only provides depth, but Gino may end being the depth. This guy rated higher than Matt Birk on PFF in 2012, in 455 snaps, the 1st 455 of his career, but that's considerably more than Gino got last year.As a bonus, NO penalties in 455 snaps...........
