The Philadelphia Eagles claimed wide receiver Greg Salas off of waivers from the New England Patriots, and to make room for Salas on the roster, the team released wide receiver Mardy Gilyard, the Eagles announced on Friday afternoon (via Twitter).

Salas, 24, is a former fourth round selection of the St. Louis Rams in the 2011 NFL Draft. The University of Hawaii product played in just six games in his rookie season, making 27 catches for 264 yards, but saw his season cut short because of a broken left leg. The wideout was dealt to the Patriots and played in just one game for New England before being waived.

Like Salas, Mardy Gilyard is a former fourth-round pick of the St. Louis Rams, but was taken in the 2010 NFL Draft. Gilyard appeared in six games this year, returning two punts for the Eagles for a total of 15 yards.

The Eagles (3-7) will host Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers (2-8) on Monday night.
