Jets sign WR Greg Salas off Eagles practice squad

It looks like the New York Jets are looking for more than just Josh Cribs to help their passing game.

According to Pro Football Talk, the Jets have signed wide receiver Greg Salas off of the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad today. Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported, via Pro Football Talk, that Salas was in Philadelphia’s locker room when he was informed he would be switching teams and taking a short trip from Philadelphia to New Jersey.

Salas, a former fourth-round pick for the St. Louis Rams in 2011, had 27 catches in six games as a rookie. When he was drafted, the University of Hawaii product had the potential to become an important piece in the St. Louis receiving puzzle, but never developed. The Rams traded Salas to the New England Patriots prior to last season, where he spent some time on their practice squad. He was then claimed off waivers by the Eagles.

The addition of both Josh Cribs and Salas can’t bode well for Clyde Gates’ chances of playing this week after hurting his shoulder in last week’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. It also could be an indication that Santonio Holmes is not ready t return from his hamstring injury.
