Everyone loves a good underdog story, which is why New York Jets wide receiver Greg Salas is so easy to cheer for. He may not be the fastest, have the best hands, or be the most talented receiver on the field, but he has proven this preseason that he is worthy of a roster spot and can really contribute to the team.
At the beginning of training camp, many would have probably written off Greg Salas and not given him a shot to make the team, especially with the signings they made in free agency and the receivers they selected in the draft. Despite that, Salas has been one of the most impressive players on the team since camp started, and it has translated onto the field. So far in the 2014 preseason, he has caught four passes for 53 yards and scored a touchdown on a pass from Matt Simms. At a time when the wide receiver position has been such a huge question mark, Salas has delivered whenever he has had the opportunity.
