New York Jets Add Mardy Gilyard

The Jets have acquired wide receiver Mardy Gilyard off waivers from the St. Louis Rams. Gilyard was a fourth round pick last year.

I am of two minds on this move. Part of me feels like the Rams are not great at wide receiver, and their giving up on Gilyard after one year is telling. The other part of me remembers constantly being impressed watching him play in college at the University of Cincinnati and believing he could produce on the next level.

The word that came to mind in college was playmaker. He was quick and very dangerous in the open field. His game resembles that of Jeremy Kerley to a degree.

He will have a tough time getting on the field as a wide receiver. He might get a look, though. He could also pitch in at times as a returner. Only time will tell how much Gilyard can provide the Jets if anything.
