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.
