The Buffalo News believes Bills WR Greg Salas is "on the short list" for the No. 3 job.
Salas looked to be the favorite earlier this offseason, but Dez Lewis earned nothing but praise for his performance during OTAs and minicamp. Unless sixth-rounder Kolby Listenbee (hernia surgery) shows extremely well in camp, the No. 3 job should come down to those two. Even if he does not win an offensive role, Salas' punt-return ability could earn him a roster spot. Jul 23 - 8:57 AM

Bills WRs coach Sanjay Lal said the team is counting on Greg Salas to "take another step."

Counting on a journeyman entering his age-28 season to "take another step" feels like a fool's errand, but that did not stop Lal from talking up Salas. "He is a smart, savvy, excellent route runner," said Lal. "So we’re really counting on him to come through and take another step and really be the guy that when all else fails Greg is going to be able to get open." Unless Buffalo adds a veteran before training camp, Salas seems like the favorite for the No. 3 job.

The Buffalo News' Tyler Dunne thinks Greg Salas has an early 'leg up' in the Bills' No. 3 receiver competition.

Dunne qualifies by saying his prediction comes "far, far, far too early" in the offseason, but Salas winning the No. 3 job would make sense. He has good size (6-2, 210), can play in the slot, and is probably the best option currently on the roster. That says more about the depth chart than Salas, however, and it would not be surprising if Buffalo added someone before training camp. The Bills hosted free agent WR Andre Roberts this week.

Bills.com’s Chris Brown considers Greg Salas a candidate to replace Chris Hogan.

Buffalo has one of the worst depth charts behind Sammy Watkins, with Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin, and Salas all competing for spots. Salas has experience in the slot, but it would be surprising if he was more than a No. 5 receiver. An injury-prone journeyman, Salas has seen limited snaps with five teams over the last four seasons.
Mar 19 - 5:49 PM

Bills signed WR Greg Salas and DE Jerel Worthy.

WR Marcus Thigpen has been waived. The Bills are churning the back end of their roster with two weeks to go. Salas has 16 catches over the past three seasons.

Lions placed WR Greg Salas (knee) on injured reserve.

Salas was productive this preseason with 138 yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions, but he suffered a knee injury in the final exhibition game.

Lions WR Greg Salas left Thursday night's preseason finale with a knee injury and won't return.

Battling for a roster spot, Salas has been a productive player in exhibition games for Detroit. The knee injury will almost certainly keep him off the 53-man roster.

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.

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.
Thu, Aug 13, 2015 10:43:00 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.
Wed, May 13, 2015 01:22:00 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.
Thu, Dec 4, 2014 03:22:00 PM

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.
