— The Chiefs released veteran wide receiver Mardy Gilyard on the eve of training camp Thursday.

Gilyard previously played for the Rams, Eagles and Jets, catching a total of eight passes.

The Chiefs still have 12 wide receivers in camp and all should be available to participate in the first practice session Friday at Missouri Western State University. Donnie Avery, a free-agent signing, missed most of offseason practice because of a high ankle sprain but has been cleared to practice.
