Jets Tried Out WRs Including Greg Salas & Jarrett Boykin

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Jets brought in free agent receives Jarrett Boykin, Aldrick Robinson, Greg Salas and Damaris Johnson for tryouts on Tuesday.

Salas, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Rams back in back in 2011. He lasted just a little over a year before he was traded to the Patriots in return for a seventh-round pick.

Since then, Salas has played for the Eagles and Jets before the Lions brought him in on a one-year contract back in May. Detroit wound up placing him on season-ending injured reserve with a knee injury and later releasing him with a settlement a few weeks into the season.

In 2014, Salas appeared in 10 games and caught eight passes for 167 yards and ran for 20 yards and a touchdown on one carry.

Boykin, 25, originally signed on with the Jaguars as undrafted free agent out of Virginia Tech back in 2012. He later caught on with the Packers after he was waived by Jacksonville a month after the signed him.

The Panthers wound up signing him to a one-year, $700,000 contract back in late March. However, he was among the team’s early roster cuts a few weeks ago.

In 2014, Boykin appeared in 13 games for Green Bay and caught three passes for 23 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
