Sitting in the stands at the UC/Akron game this past weekend and seeing Mardy Gilyard on the sidelines it got me thinking. Why not?
The guy loves Cincinnati and talked very highly about playing for the Bengals.
He's an electric return man who can make plays... Remember this?

He's a free agent who can be had on the cheap; especially if it brings him back to Cincy. I personally think he'd be great in the slot and as a returner. With Shipley down for who knows how long, why not have a playmaker in the slot position?
And I'm sure it would help the Bengals strengthen ties with UC and have a mutually beneficial relationship.
