The Eagles decided to pass on calling up preseason star wide receiver Greg Salas in favor of B.J. Cunningham on Monday. Just one day later, Salas has found an active roster to call home. The Jets signed Salas to their active roster on Tuesday, according to CSN Philly's Rueben Frank.
Salas had been on the Eagles practice squad since the start of the season and had been in Philadelphia since last November. The wide receiver from Hawaii had an impressive training camp and looked poise to make the Eagles roster following solid performances in the preseason. He finished the preseason with 7 catches for 107 yards and a touchdown, including a 26-receiving yard performance off of two catches against the Jets in the fourth exhibition game.
Salas will level a spot empty on the Eagles practice squad. The Eagles currently have six wide receivers on the active roster.
