The Patriots have traded for ex-Rams WR Greg Salas, the team announced Saturday.
The Rams' press release announcing the trade said that the Patriots gave up an undisclosed draft pick in 2015. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the pick will be a late-round selection.
Salas, a fourth-round pick of the Rams in 2011, will be reunited with new Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who held the same position last season in St. Louis.
Salas appeared in six games as a rookie, catching 27 passes for 264 yards.
The team also announced that it released veteran LB Bobby Carpenter.
