Jets waive Mardy Gilyard

Mardy Gilyard, Rashean Mathis AP

There hasn’t been much news from around the league in the last couple of days as everyone spends time with family, friends and whatever new gadgets they received for Christmas.

One small piece of news escaped our attention for the reasons listed above, but we’ll rectify that now by passing along word that the Jets have waived wide receiver Mardy Gilyard. It’s the second time the Jets have parted ways with Gilyard in the last two seasons, with this tenure ending after a little less than a month and two catches for 15 yards.

Gilyard’s first Jets stint lasted just six days during the 2011 season and he played six games with the Eagles this season before returning to the Jets. He was originally a fourth-round pick by the Rams in 2010.

His departure leaves the Jets with an open roster spot to fill for the final game of the season. I’m hoping they opt for a quarterback.

    Maybe Sparano is bring back Pat White to run the wildcat since Timmy quit. Their NFL careers are pretty similar to this point.

    Brett Farve is packing a suitcase as we speak.

    Who would care whom the Jets opted for…….It’s not like they’re on a SB run!

    Poor guy. He’s exiting the big top before the 3 ring circus closes down for the season. He will miss the final show.

    A Joe Namath signing must be in the works. Sure he’s 70 years old but he’d still be an upgrade over Sanchez and Tebow.

    I thought this guy was going to be a solid player when drafted out of Cincinnati. He was unstoppable there. Three teams see something lacking.

    I remember the year Mardy had at Cincy. He needs to goto the Wes Welker school of route running for small receivers. Amendola did after the Boys and Eagles let him walk.

    Being part of dysfunctional offense with lousy QB’s and a lousy OC is not conducive to a receivers development and success.

    I hear Vinnie Testaverde is starting week 17 for the Jets.

    I’m sure he’ll clear waivers, maybe he just needs to be in the right system. Maybe Jax should sign him considering we don’t have anyone outside of Blackmon, CS3 & Shipley on Sunday (scratch CS3 out due to injury). A 1-game audition as a #3 or4 & a full offseason of working with one of the best WR teachers in the game (Jerry Sullivan) sounds good enough for me. I know Black Monday will be huge this year for the Jags as we’re expected to clean house, but there are some good position coaches I’d love to keep.
    Ladies & Gents,
    You never know, “This ‘IS’ THE NFL!”

    Maybe the Jets have decided to sign Joe Montana, who has decided to make a comeback after using Skechers’ Shape Up shoes…

    But what does Tim Tebow think of this? Where are his comments? Isn’t that always the most important part of any Jets story?

    This soap opera is so great, thank you Jets!!

    Maybe the Jets are bringing back Richard Todd.
