To shore up their wide receiving corps, the Jets signed a relatively familiar face -- Mardy Gilyard.

The wideout, who was drafted in the fourth round by the Rams in 2010, spent a little less than a week with the Jets in 2011. But general manager Mike Tannenbaum decided to give Gilyard a second chance with both Clyde Gates and Chaz Schilens sidelined (not sure for how long) with concussions. Not to mention, slot receiver Jeremy Kerley is battling heel and hamstring injuries. 

Gilyard was released by the Eagles last week.

The Jets also added wide receiver Eddie McGee and offensive tackle Dennis Landolt to the practice squad.
