#96 Marcel Shipp
Oh what could have been for Shipp. A member of the Cardinals from 2001-2007, he played a total of six seasons. He missed 2004 thanks to a broken leg suffered in training camp.
Shipp had a fantastic 2002 and 2003 almost seemingly out of nowhere. His career started in 2001 but he was mainly a special teams player his rookie season.
However in 2002, he burst onto the scene as an offensive weapon. He had 834-yards rushing on 188-carries. That gave him a 4.4-yard-per-carry average that year.
He also had 38 receptions for 413-yards, a 10.9-yard-per-reception average. He scored three touchdowns through the air.
All that for a guy who wasn’t even a full-time starter. He started just six of the 15 games he started that season.
His 2003 season was roughly the same. He started 11 games that season and carried for 830-yards. He also caught 37-passes.
However after his 2004 injury, he wasn’t the same. He had 451-yards rushing in 2005 but rode the bench for the most part in 2006 and 2007.
