The Philadelphia Eagles claimed wide receiver Greg Salas off waivers on Friday. Salas was waived by the New England Patriots before their game against the New York Jets on Thursday. The Eagles release wide receiver Mardy Gilyard to make room for Salas. They are trying to add depth to the position because of a hamstring injury to Jason Avant, according to NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk. Salas, a fourth-round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams in 2011, played in just six games his rookie year and then was traded to New England for a seventh-rounder before the beginning of this season.
