CORTLAND, N.Y. – Greg Salas was perhaps the biggest star of the New York Jets' scrimmage Saturday night. But as far as the wide receiver was concerned, he didn't really do anything new.
Salas, part of crowded competition to win a spot in the Jets' receiving corps, says he has been making catches all summer in training camp while trying to impress Rex Ryan and the rest of the coaching staff.
He had five catches for 54 yards in the practice that was dominated by the defense. He dropped a pass, too, but that didn't take away from a good performance. The 25-year-old Salas is heading into his fourth NFL season, and second with the Jets — and he's hoping make a case with a solid preseason.
