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

EDGE Analysis

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.

Gilchrist (knee) may eventually be released, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

EDGE Analysis

Currently rehabbing from a torn patellar suffered in December, the 28-year-old safety won't be able to pass a physical anytime soon. Once he's able to do so, Gilchrist could be part of the Jets' veteran purge that has already sent WR Brandon Marshall, C Nick Mangold and CB Darrelle Revis out of town.

Gilchrist (knee) will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn patellar tendon in Sunday's win over the 49ers, SportsNet New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although the Jets were able to get the victory Sunday, there was some attrition on both sides of the ball as both Gilchrist and Matt Forte suffered knee injuries. While the severity of Forte's injury has yet to be disclosed, it has been confirmed that Gilchrist will require surgery and miss the remainder of the season. He recorded 50 total tackles and two interceptions this season before suffering a torn patellar tendon Sunday. Doug Middleton will likely move into a starting role as the Jets' free safety for the rest of the 2016 campaign.

Gilchrist recorded three tackles Sunday against the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Although Blake Bortles through 40 passes in this game, Gilchrist failed to record an interception in his third straight contest. In addition, he now has recorded fewer than four tackles in five of his last seven games.

Gilchrist recorded six tackles Sunday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

With the Browns not having much ability to move the ball through the air, Gilchrist primarily served as support against the Browns' running game.

Gilchrist, who signed a four-year contract with the Jets in March, had a shoulder scope after the 2014 season, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports.

Gilchrist has thus far been limited during offseason workouts, but he'll likely be healthy for training camp. He's expected to start next to Calvin Pryor at safety, following a 76-tackle campaign with the Chargers.
