Today, the Philadelphia Eagles made a roster move. Jaiquawn Jarrett, who was a second-round draft pick by the Eagles in last years draft, was released. Many thought that Jarrett was a huge draft bust.
Jarrett did play against the Cleveland Browns this past week. He did not record any tackles and also missed tackling Josh Cribbs on a return.
The 6-foot Temple University product recorded only 15 tackles on defense in 13 NFL games.
The Eagles also signed wide receiver Mardy Gilyard. Gilyard spent the entire preseason with the Eagles until they cut him to finish out their 53-man roster.
Gilyard has caught 6 passes in his NFL career for 63 yards, all coming with the St. Louis Rams. Gilyard also can help out on special teams and returns.
One question does linger from this transaction: Could Jeremy Maclin's injury be more serious than it seemed?
