I think if you work into the squat gradually, squating can become a shoulder flexiblity exercise also. I've been able to do some crazy stuff in wrestling because of my flexible shoulders

Bridge Press: pressing DBs/KBs in a wrestlers bridge (back bridge on your head)
Pull-over, zerchers goto bodybuilding.com, (I know its a BB site but they have an excellent exercise index)

Looking back at my old post I meant to say narrow grip squats can become a shoulder flexibility exercise.
