Salas, who saw action in two games with the Bills last season and signed a contract extension with the team in January, is being eyeballed for an increased role in 2016 due to Chris Hogan being signed away by the Patriots, BuffaloBills.com reports. "He's very smart, understands football, works hard," said Bills receivers coach Sanjay Lal. "What he lacks is elite, top end speed, explosion, but he more than makes up for it in how he can separate by leaning in, using his physicality. He's gotten better at releasing over the years. Great catch radius, strong hands. I think he can be a force in the slot and as a third down receiver." Hogan was the team's clear-cut wideout in 2015, and Salas has a similar skill set. The Bills are in no cap position to add a key free agent and may need to address a leaky defense at the top of the draft. While the fan base is calling for a higher-upside wideout to put across from budding star Sammy Watkins, Salas could find himself toward the top of a battle for one of the top four spots this season. That said, he hasn't done much in his pro career and does not offer any explosiveness, plus the Bills are a run-oriented program.
The Lions placed wide receiver Greg Salas and defensive tackle Corey Wootton on injured reserve Saturday, reports the team's official website. Salas was dealing with a knee injury while Wootton had a torn pectoral.
The Lions have signed two veterans - wideout Greg Salas and cornerback Chris Owens - per the Detroit Free Press. The team later confirmed the report. Salas last played with the Jets. He compiled his most productive numbers since his rookie year last season, but that only amounted to eight catches for 167 yards. Owens has played with four different teams over the last four seasons, but did get into 11 games with Kansas City in 2014. He has not recorded an interception since 2010.
A hamstring injury has landed Jets wideout Greg Salas on injured reserve just days after he scored his first touchdown of the season in the Monday night loss to Miami. Salas, whose score was on the ground and had not caught a pass since Week 6, finishes the year with just eight receptions for 167 yards. The Jets have promoted fellow wide receiver Chris Owusu from the practice squad to take his place on the active roster.
After scoring on a 20-yard end-around in the first quarter, his first career touchdown, Jets wideout Greg Salas left the game against the Dolphins with a hamstring injury. The Jets said Salas won't return.
