Lions.com reporter Tim Twentyman listed Greg Salas as a player on the roster bubble.
Salas has impressed in his two preseason games, leading the team with 100 yards on six catches. It could be tough for him to land a roster spot with Calvin Johnson and Corey Fuller ahead of him on the depth chart. Fringe receivers T.J. Jones and Ryan Broyles are also hoping to crack the 53-man roster. Aug 23 - 10:53 AM

Greg Salas caught five passes for 92 yards with a touchdown in Thursday's preseason opener against the Jets.

Salas stated his case for the slot receiver job by going nuts with Dan Orlovsky under center. The highlight was a 20-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Meanwhile, Ryan Broyles, Lance Moore and T.J. Jones failed to distinguish themselves.
Aug 13 - 10:43 PM

Lions signed WR Greg Salas, formerly of the Jets.

Salas caught eight passes for 167 scoreless yards across 226 snaps last season with the Jets. He's a big slot receiver at 6'2/210. A fringe player joining a top-heavy receiving corps, Salas will compete for a final spot on the roster.
May 13 - 1:22 PM

Jets placed WR Greg Salas on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

Chris Owusu has been promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. Salas blew a tire scoring a 20-yard touchdown in Monday's loss to the Dolphins. A fourth-year fringe player headed into free agency, Salas closes the book on 2014 with eight catches across 10 games. He'll fight for someone's final receiver spot next summer.

Jets WR Greg Salas exited Monday night's Week 13 game against the Dolphins with a hamstring injury and will not return.

Salas ran for a 20-yard touchdown on an end-around and went straight to the locker room after the score in the first quarter. He's the Jets' No. 4 receiver.
Mon, Dec 1, 2014 09:39:00 PM

Jets declared WR Greg Salas, WR Chris Owusu, DL D.J. Barnes, OG Dakota Dozier, OL Wesley Johnson, OLB Trevor Reilly and DB Josh Thomas inactive for Week 7 against the Patriots.

Eric Decker (hamstring) and David Nelson (ankle) are active. Salas is week to week, with a good shot at returning in Week 8.
Thu, Oct 16, 2014 07:08:00 PM

Jets WR Greg Salas (ankle, wrist) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Salas didn't practice all week. He'll be held out of Thursday night's game against the Patriots, but has a chance to return in Week 8.
Wed, Oct 15, 2014 04:20:00 PM

Jets WR Greg Salas (ankle, wrist) sat out Monday and Tuesday's practices, and is expected to miss Thursday's game against the Patriots.

The Jets' No. 3/4 receiver took a huge shot to his leg when he wasn't looking in Sunday's loss to the Broncos, and doesn't have enough time to get healthy on the short week. It appears he'll be back for Week 8.
Tue, Oct 14, 2014 01:26:00 PM

Greg Salas caught two passes for 56 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Bears.

Salas saw extra playing time with Eric Decker hobbled by his hamstring. The slot receiver-type can be ignored and is well off the fantasy radar.
Tue, Sep 23, 2014 12:27:00 AM

Greg Salas secured 2-of-2 targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game.

Salas now has four catches for 53 yards and a score through three preseason games. Considering how poorly Stephen Hill has shown this summer, Salas could begin the year as the Jets' No. 4 receiver.
Fri, Aug 22, 2014 11:48:00 PM

Jets WR Greg Salas caught two balls for 48 yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Ravens.

Salas, filling in for usual slot man Jeremy Kerley (elbow), was the Jets' leading receiver against Baltimore. A situational backup in a dysfunctional passing offense, Salas is without value in re-draft fantasy leagues.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 04:38:00 PM

Greg Salas caught two passes for 57 yards in Sunday's Week 9 win over the Saints.

With Jeremy Kerley (elbow) leaving early on, Salas came on and did well to show burst on a pair of wideout screens. He'll see very limited snaps going forward, especially if Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is back after the Week 10 bye.
Sun, Nov 3, 2013 04:49:00 PM

Jets signed WR Greg Salas.

The Jets plucked the former Patriot and Ram off the Eagles' practice squad. He's the second receiver the Jets signed on Tuesday, suggesting Clyde Gates (shoulder) could miss Week 7, and that Santonio Holmes (hamstring) will be sidelined at least one more game. Salas was released at final cuts even after going 7/107/1 in the preseason. He'll bring up the rear of the Jets' receiver corps.
Tue, Oct 15, 2013 01:52:00 PM

Eagles signed WR Greg Salas, OT Michael Bamiro, LB Travis Long and RB Matthew Tucker to the practice squad.

Salas had a strong preseason, but has a very mixed regular-season record. It stands to reason he'll eventually get a look on the 53-man roster. The top name available for this year's Supplemental Draft, Bamiro needs a year to develop before making another roster bid.
Sun, Sep 1, 2013 01:59:00 PM

Eagles waived WR Greg Salas, OLB Chris McCoy, and OLB Travis Long.

Salas is a surprise after a strong preseason. Chip Kelly is keeping former college pal Jeff Maehl over him. The Eagles will only carry three outside linebackers: Trent Cole, Connor Barwin, and Brandon Graham.
