Found November 28, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
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. He was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He played college football at the University of Cincinnati.  The Jets are hurting right now on offense, with Joe McKnight lining up at wide out.  Gilyard will look to ignite his career with Mark Sanchez in the Big Apple.

Jets Sign WR Mardy Gilyard

The New York Jets signed WR Mardy Gilyard Tuesday evening following a workout, per Mark Garafolo. Following injuries to Clyde Gates (concussion), Chaz Schilens (concussion) and Jeremy Kerley (heel, hamstring), the Jets added depth at wide receiver with a player who can also assume return duties if Kerley is indeed out this week. New York needs impact receivers and the explosive Gilyard...

Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Angry Rant Edition

It feels like I could just copy and paste parts of this column from the last few weeks and nobody would be able to tell the difference. Week after week it’s becoming the same old stuff when it comes to this Jets team. Too many turnovers, ineffective run game, blowouts, Calvin Pace sucks, Bart Scott sucks, Kyle Wilson is a delusional finger-wagger with an incredibly false sense...

Jets O-line coach not happy with LG rotation

New York Jets offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo says rotating Matt Slauson and Vladimir Ducasse at left guard is ''a directive from high above me.'' Clearly unhappy with that decision, which comes from coach Rex Ryan, DeGuglielmo raves Thursday about Slauson while saying that Ducasse, a second-round pick in 2010, is ''playing well enough to be an every...

Thinking Forward: Even Fireman Ed Still Loves Bilal Powell

I don’t blame Fireman Ed for walking away disgustipated with his Jets.  It’s hard to stay upbeat and ready to support your team after such a performance.  By now, we’ve all learned that Mark Sanchez is a big Sir Mix-A-Lot fan with his unholy gravitational pull towards Moore’s backside.  But for fantasy purposes and for nearly as much humor we were treated to another...

Can Craig Carton come up with Another $50k ($100k total) for his Bart Scott Challenge?

Chris Lopresti was taxed with serving NY Jets linebacker Bart Scott with Craig Carton's $50k dodgeball challenge. “Enough is enough with Bart Scott,” Carton said. “Memo to Bart Scott: I will put... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com

Ryan expects Tebow to be cleared for Sunday's game

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan expects Tim Tebow to be cleared to play against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Ryan told reporters on Wednesday. That does not necessarily mean Tebow will play, however. "We'll see how he progresses during the week," Ryan told the New York Daily News. "He's limited right now and we'll see, but I guess the answer is &...

Chiefs claim OL Hayworth Hicks off waivers

The Chiefs have claimed offensive lineman Hayworth Hicks off waivers. The 6-foot-3, 336-pound Hicks entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Colts in April. He spent time on their practice squad before being acquired by the New York Jets on Nov. 6. He spent three games on their roster but was inactive each week. The former Iowa State standout takes the roster spot...

Thanks to Jets, Cardinals can relate to Jets' second-quarter meltdown

Ken Whisenhunt can sort of relate to how the New York Jets were feeling in their second-quarter, 35-point collapse against the New England Patriots last week. He can thank the Jets for that. The last time the Cardinals head coach faced Gang Green was in 2008, when Brett Favre threw six touchdown passes in a Jets victory. New York scored 34 points in the second quarter of that game...

Here’s A Terrifying Reminder That Athlete Underwear Ads Have Come A Long Way

Earlier this year, there was a considerable deal of buzz around New York Jets backup QB Tim Tebow inking an endorsement deal with the underwear company Jockey, because the world’s most famous virgin doesn’t exactly sound like the perfect candidate for rocking his bulge. But then the ads started flopping out of the fold – like the one above – and we realized that these were...

Rex 'cherishes' first NFL experience with Cardinals

Regardless of what you may think of Rex Ryan as head coach of the New York Jets, the guy has a pretty impressive coaching resume. Ryan went from a graduate assistant at Eastern Kentucky in the late 1980s to one of the best defensive coaches in the game leading the mid-2000 Baltimore Ravens' defense. A few years later, he's the lead guy for New York's green team. But Ryan...
