Texans' Marcus Gilchrist: Quiet in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilchrist logged just two solo tackles in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.

It was Gilchrist's second consecutive week with just two tackles. He has failed to record more than four since tallying a season-high nine (seven solo) in Week 5. The 28-year-old logged 50 snaps (86.0 percent) in the contest.

Texans' Marcus Gilchrist: Ties team high in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilchrist tied a team high with nine tackles (seven solo) in Week 5's loss to the Chiefs.

Gilchrist was on the field for all 77 defensive snaps in the game, one of three Texans players to do so. He will presumably continue to see healthy numbers with his heavy workload. The 28-year-old will have an advantageous matchup against the Browns on Sunday.

Texans' Marcus Gilchrist: Finds new home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans signed Gilchrist to a one-year contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

After losing Quintin Demps to the Bears in free agency, the Texans have been in the market for additional help at strong safety. The wait was long, but after Gilchrist was cleared by doctors last week from last year's season-ending knee injury, it was only a matter of time before he found a landing spot. Granted, signing Gilchrist, a long-time free safety, doesn't exactly shore up the hole with the Texans' 2016 starter at the position, Andre Hal, still in the fold. Having said that, Gilchrist should have an opportunity to surpass 55 tackles for the sixth consecutive campaign.

Marcus Gilchrist: Cleared to return to field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilchrist (knee) has been cleared by doctors to return to the field, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Gilchrist started 13 games for the Jets last year before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He was released by the team in May after passing a physical, as they had acquired multiple safety options. The 28-year-old should not have a hard time finding a new team, and has already begun scheduling visits for next week.

Marcus Gilchrist: Released by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilchrist (knee) was released by the Jets on Thursday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

The Jets were reportedly waiting until Gilchrist could pass a physical to waive him. The addition of multiple safeties, including first-round pick Jamal Adams, during the draft all but insured the team would eventually release him. Gilchrist will be entering his age 28 season in 2017 and will likely catch on as a starter or top backup with another team.
