Shelton Gibson: Let go by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was cut by Philadelphia on Sunday.

The 25-year-old's only appearance last season came in the playoffs, when he logged 13 snaps (two on offense) in the Eagles' wild-card loss to Seattle. Gibson also recorded three catches for 59 yards across 20 games in his three-year career with the Eagles. He'll look for employment elsewhere and may have just enough NFL experience to make another roster around the league.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Makes only appearance in playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson played in just one game during the 2019 season, logging two offensive and 11 special-teams snaps in the Eagles' 17-9 wild-card loss to Seattle on Jan. 5.

Prior to rejoining the Eagles for the postseason, Gibson had been on the Browns' practice squad all year. His only noteworthy play was drawing a pass interference penalty on the team's last drive of the wild-card round. With Philadelphia almost certain to get healthier while also making upgrading its receiving corps a priority in the offseason, the 24-year-old faces long odds to crack the Eagles' Week 1 roster in 2020.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Inks deal with Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) signed with the Eagles on Wednesday, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Gibson last played an NFL game in 2018 for the Eagles, and he caught just one pass for 48 yards over 15 games. The 24-year-old will add depth to the Eagles' injury-riddled receiving corps.

Shelton Gibson: Lands in Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) was signed to the Browns' practice squad.

Gibson, a fifth-round draft pick in 2017 by Philadelphia, was cut by the Eagles on Aug. 21. He saw action in 20 regular season games and five postseason games for the Eagles, including in their Super Bowl LII victory. The Cleveland native played mostly on special teams while with the Eagles.

Shelton Gibson: Granted injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles waived Gibson (ankle) with an injury settlement Wednesday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Gibson spent more than a week on injured reserve prior to this move. Once he gets back to full health, the West Virginia product will have the opportunity to sign elsewhere and fight for a depth receiver role.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) cleared waivers and reverted to the Eagles' injured reserve Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Gibson was considered week-to-week right after the injury, so it is unclear if he suffered any type of setback. Once he returns to full health, he and the team could reach an injury settlement to allow him to find a new opportunity or else he will be sidelined for the season.

Shelton Gibson: Waived by Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) was waived/injured by the Eagles on Sunday.

Gibson is currently dealing with an ankle injury, but he'll head to the free-agent pool following Sunday's move. He was competing for a spot as a wideout and as a return man prior to being waived.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Diagnosed with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson is dealing with an ankle injury and is considered week-to-week, Mike Kaye of reports.

Gibson had been dealing with a foot injury in recent days and will likely continue to be sidelined. This news will hurt Gibson's chances as he tries to make the team as a depth receiver and on special teams.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Dealing with foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson left Sunday's practice due to a right foot injury, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

The details surrounding Gibson's injury are unclear at this time, but it was serious enough to force him off the practice field. Consider him day-to-day until the Eagles can provide another update on his status.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (undisclosed) practiced in full Monday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Gibson wasn't able to participate in Philadelphia's June minicamp because of this injury. The 22-year-old faces a tough path to a roster spot in 2019 -- and, even then, would only be the No. 5 receiver, at best -- but his role as the No. 2 kick/punt returner certainly gives him an edge over his competition.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Injury not deemed serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson's undisclosed injury is not believed to be serious, Dave Zangaro of NBC Philadelphia reports.

Gibson was able to watch practices from the sideline during the Eagles' recent minicamp according to Zangaro, who believes the 24-year-old will be healthy and ready by the time training camp rolls around. He'll need every edge he can get then, as he faces steep competition for a roster spot where either he or Mack Hollins is at best fifth on Philadelphia's wide-receiver depth chart. Gibson, the West Virginia product, has an advantage over his competition though, that being special-teams ability, which allowed him to log time on the field in all but one game last season.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Faces tough path to roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson faces added competition for a roster spot after the Eagles signed former AAF wideouts Charles Johnson and Greg Ward, Zack Rosenblatt of reports.

Ward is a familiar face who spent most of 2017 on Philadelphia's practice squad, while Johnson has no history with the organization but led the AAF in catches and receiving yards. A 2017 fifth-round pick, Gibson was active for 15 games in 2018, playing 151 snaps on special teams and just 64 on offense. He'll compete with Johnson, Ward, Mack Hollins (groin), Braxton Miller and a few other players for what likely will be two or three roster spots. Alshon Jeffery (ribs), DeSean Jackson (Achilles) and Nelson Agholor are locked in atop the Eagles' depth chart at wide receiver.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Just one catch in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson hauled in just one of his three targets for 48 yards while appearing in 15 games during the regular season.

Gibson saw double-digit offensive snaps in a game just once in 2018. The acquisition of Golden Tate almost completely relegated the West Virginia product to special-teams work in the second half of the campaign. Even with Tate and Mike Wallace (ankle) set to test free agency this offseason, the 23-year-old will still have an uphill battle to securing a meaningful role on offense in 2019.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Saints.

Gibson was listed as questionable after being added to the injury report Friday as a limited participant. The 23-year-old hasn't played an offensive snap since Week 13 and is likely to be limited to a role on special teams as a kick returner.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Saints.

Gibson was added to Friday's injury report as a limited participant in practice. The second-year wideout has not played an offensive snap since Week 13 of the regular season, and he'll see most of his action as the Eagles' top kick returner if he's able to suit up versus New Orleans.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Suits up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson is active for Sunday night's game against the Rams, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Gibson has only seen three offensive snaps total over the last four weeks. His impact will likely only be felt on special teams.

December 14, 2018 10:32 PM
Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (wrist) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Rams.

Gibson has four healthy wideouts ahead of him in the depth chart so his offensive potential is capped. The second-year pro has just once catch for 48 yards this year. His most-consistent role is as a kick returner, where Wendell Smallwood will fill in if Gibson can't go.

December 13, 2018 04:56 PM
Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (wrist) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Gibson is managing a wrist injury of undisclosed severity, putting his status for Sunday's tilt against the Rams in Question. The second-year wideout has seen only target all season, so his tentative absence would be unlikely to have a large impact on Philadelphia's offense. If Gibson were to miss any time, Wendell Smallwood would slot in as the Eagles' top kick returner.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Makes lone target count in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson reeled in his only target for 48 yards in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Vikings.

Gibson caught the deep ball, his first catch of the year, early in the second quarter to get the Eagles into Minnesota territory and set up a field goal. While the 23-year-old tripled his playing time for the second consecutive week, that amounted to just nine offensive snaps on the day. Perhaps the big gain will lead to more playing time Week 6 against the Giants.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Barely on field in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson played just three offensive snaps and was not targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Titans.

On the plus side, he played three times as many snaps on offense as he did the previous week. With the recent return of Alshon Jeffery and signing of Jordan Matthews, Gibson is more buried on the depth chart than ever.
