Draft Scout Marcus Gilchrist News
08/01/17 - S Marcus Gilchrist was signed to a one-year deal. His arrival should inject competition into the safety position, which is in flux after Quintin Demps signed with the Chicago Bears this offseason. Gilchrist has starting experience and is healthy now. He could push Andre Hal or Corey Moore for a starting job if he learns the defense quickly enough.
05/04/17 - S Marcus Gilchrist was released by the Jets on Thursday after the team selected two fellow safeties in the 2017 NFL draft. Gilchrist saw his 2016 season come to an end in Week 14 after sustaining a ruptured patellar tendon. He was set to make $6 million in salary this coming season.
12/12/16 - FS Marcus Gilchrist (torn patellar tendon) suffered a season-ending injury while covering the second-half kickoff in Sunday's 23-17 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers. Torn patellar tendons can often take more than a year to heal, which puts Gilchrist's availability for the 2017 season in serious doubt.
03/12/15 - S Marcus Gilchrist left the Chargers for the Jets Thursday (March 12), agreeing to terms on a four-year contract.
03/04/15 - S Marcus Gilchrist struggled last season but showed enough promise that the team would like to see him continue to grow. Gilchrist benefits by playing alongside All-Pro Eric Weddle and takes advantage of it. He can also play the slot in the nickel package. Gilchrist's 76 tackles were second only to Weddle on the team and Gilchrist added a sack and two fumble recoveries.
