Chiefs signed WR Mardy Gilyard.

Gilyard broke the news on his Twitter account. Gilyard appeared in six games for Andy Reid's Eagles in 2012, reeling in zero passes. He was then picked up by the Jets in late November and spent a month with the team, catching two passes for 15 yards. Gilyard has been a complete bust since being the No. 99 overall pick in the 2010 draft by the Rams.

Jets waived WR Mardy Gilyard.

He lasted just under a month with the team. Gilyard, the 99th overall pick in the 2010 draft, has bounced around from the Rams to the Eagles to the Jets.

Jets signed WR/KR Mardy Gilyard, formerly of the Eagles.

Both Clyde Gates and Chaz Schilens suffered concussions in the loss to the Patriots last week. Jeremy Kerley (heel, hamstring) was not at practice on Monday. Gilyard will add depth to the banged up wide receiver corps and could take over punt returns. OG Hayworth Hicks was waived in a corresponding move.

Eagles declared WR Mardy Gilyard, QB Trent Edwards, RB Chris Polk, OG Danny Watkins, DE Vinny Curry, DE Phillip Hunt, and OL Nate Menkin inactive for Week 10 versus the Cowboys.

Damaris Johnson is expected to handle punt returns with Gilyard out. Hunt is a healthy scratch for the first time this season.

Eagles WR/PR Mardy Gilyard (hamstring) will not play in Week 10.

Gilyard pulled his hamstring during the Week 8 loss to the Falcons. Look for rookie Damaris Johnson to handle the majority of punt returns against the Cowboys this week. DeSean Jackson is also an option in certain situations.

Eagles WR Mardy Gilyard left Sunday's game against the Falcons in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and will not return.

Gilyard got hurt while playing on special teams and pulled up pretty lame. His absence could mean some punt return opportunities for DeSean Jackson.

Eagles re-signed WR Mardy Gilyard.

The need for Gilyard doesn't bode well for Jeremy Maclin's Week 2 status after coming down with a hip flexor in the opener. Jason Avant is also dealing with a wrist injury. Gilyard is a fringe roster player coming off a strong August with the Eagles. He will be last on the depth chart at wide receiver.

Eagles waived WR Mardy Gilyard.

Gilyard just doesn't have the skills to be anything more than a fringe player. He's 5'11/194 and runs in the 4.5s.

Eagles signed WR/KR Mardy Gilyard to a reserve/future contract.

Not including free agents DeSean Jackson and Steve Smith, the Eagles now have seven receivers on their roster. Gilyard, a fourth-round pick in 2010, was out of the league in 2011 after spending time with the Rams and Jets over the summer.

Free agents Mardy Gilyard, Tiquan Underwood, David Clowney, and Johnnie Lee Higgins are the latest wide receivers to work out for the Titans.

Gilyard, Higgins, Underwood, Clowney, and Juaquin Iglesias were in Tuesday. Donnie Avery is expected to arrive on Wednesday after working out for the Panthers. Buster Davis is also in the mix, and veteran Justin Gage is considered the favorite to sign as receiver depth.

The Eagles will work out free agent WR Mardy Gilyard Tuesday.

Ex-Titans DE Jacob Ford is also getting a look. The Eagles are likely just updating their emergency list. They are deep at wideout as Steve Smith is getting healthier and talented Riley Cooper isn't even seeing the field.

Jets waived WR Mardy Gilyard.

He didn't make it a week on the roster. The 99th overall pick in the 2010 draft by the Rams, Gilyard has now been given up on by two teams in two years.
Fri, Sep 9, 2011 06:53:00 PM

Jets claimed WR/KR Mardy Gilyard off waivers from the Rams.

Gilyard's strengths are similar to those of rookie Jeremy Kerley, so in that sense it's an interesting fit. The Jets receivers behind Santonio Holmes are aging, which leaves Gilyard with the opportunity to climb the depth chart if he sticks around. He should battle Kerley for return duties right off the bat.

Rams waived WR Mardy Gilyard.

Gilyard caught eight passes in the preseason, but only because he played so much. He just doesn't add anything on offense. That said, Gilyard put some good things on tape as a special teams gunner this August. He only has a $405,000 base salary for 2011, so it wouldn't be surprising if he got claimed.
