Rams get Mardy Gilyard under contract

Rookie wideout Mardy Gilyard has agreed to terms with the St. Louis Rams, his agents have announced via Twitter.

It’s a four-year deal, per Andy Simms and David Lee.

Aaron Wilson reports via Twitter that the deal for the first pick in round four has a total value of $2.34 million over four years.

With Rams cornerback Jerome Murphy, the top pick in round three, receiving a four-year deal worth $2.72 million, the two contracts reveal a full-round spread of $380,000 in contract value.

The development continues a recent blitz by the Rams to get rookies under contract.  On Saturday, a total of four players were signed.

Of course, the most important Rams draft pick in years if not decades — quarterback Sam Bradford — remains without a rookie deal.

    Guy’s going to be a good slot receiver at a minimum for years to come. Steal in R4, kudos to the Rams.

    He’s gonna be a helluva receiver in this league.

    4th round steal. The dude makes plays in crunch time. Just a flat-out playmaker period.

    Good guy, solid WR. Good pickup for the Rams.

    Was really hoping the Packers would get him. Good guy on and off the field from all I’ve seen and heard. Yep, Rams seem to be doing some things right.

    Great to see him doing well. I wish the Bengals would have taken him. He’s not only a good receiver, but also a return threat. Rams are going to improve this year.
