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.
