Lions Add Greg Salas and Chris Owens

The Detroit Lions have added two veterans in wide receiver Greg Salas and corner Chris Owens, according to Tim Twentyman of Lion Insider.

Salas, 26, has already been on four different teams in his short career, with the Lions being the fifth. His best season was without a doubt his rookie campaign, when he caught 27 passes for 264 yards for the St. Louis Rams, the team that drafted him in the fourth-round of the 2011 draft. Salas is still seeking his first career receiving touchdown.

Salas will most likely compete against recently signed Lance Moore for the number three receiver behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.

Owens, 28, was taken in the third-round of the 2009 draft by the Atlanta Falcons, where he would pay until 2012. He has 173 tackles and three interceptions in hi six-year career. The Lions will be the fifth team that Owens has played for.

Owens will have to compete with a loaded group of corners that includes Rashean Mathis, Darius Slay, Bill Bentley, Josh Wilson, Nevin Lawson, Crezdon Butler, Quandre Diggs, and Alex Carter.
