Mardy Gilyard cut by Rams?

From the 'moves that make too much sense' department, it appears the St. Louis Rams released 2010 4th round pick WR Mardy Gilyard this morning. Gilyard got numerous looks from the Carolina Panthers in the weeks leading up to the 2010 draft and many thought he would be one of the Panthers selections based on how much interest Marty Hurney and company showed in the receiver from Cincinnati.

I said 'appears' regarding Gilyard getting cut because the only information we have is a somewhat confusing tweet from Gilayrd himself:

Mardy Gilyard
Jus got released isshhh is getting real na ugh!!!!

Is he saying he got cut? Is he ending the tweet with the lingustic equivalent of 'no, I'm not'? Honestly, I'm not sure. But, if cut he represents a player who is a good kick returner and could be developed into a WR while being better than some guys who figure to be at the bottom of the depth chart. 

Time will tell, but right now Tony Pike's favorite receiver seems like a good fit if he was released.
