Wide receiver Mardy Gilyard signed a futures contract with the Eagles, the team announced Friday.

Gilayrd, who was an All-American kick returner in college, could help solve the Eagles woes in that department.

Gilyard, who caught 204 passes at the University of Cincinnati, was drafted by St. Louis in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. He was cut before the 2011 season and then briefly picked up off waivers by the New York Jets before they released him five days later.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Gilyard was an All-American receiver in 2009 with the Bearcats after he had 87 receptions for 1,191 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was also an All-American as a kick returner in 2008.
