Former Clemson defensive back Marcus Gilchrist has been waived by the New York Jets on Thursday. The team has decided to move in another direction as they selected two safeties in their first two picks of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Gilchrist suffered a season-ending torn patella tendon injury against the San Francisco 49ers last season. Gilchrist suffered the injury on the opening kickoff of the second half when his right knee buckled cutting on a non-contact situation and he was carted off the field.

Gilchrist had 55 tackles, two interceptions, and a forced fumble this season. For his NFL career, he had 383 tackles, four forced fumbles, and ten interceptions.
