Saints’ Cameron Meredith Ahead Of Schedule

Published

on

The New Orleans Saints signed restricted free agent wide receiver Cameron Meredith banking on the idea that the Chicago Bears wideout could get back to being healthy, something that has been a challenge for him since entering the league in 2015.

After a slow start, Meredith made major strides in 2016, hauling in 66 catches for 888 yards and scoring 4 touchdowns.

But, Meredith tore his ACL and MCL last preseason, which made for a challenging venture into restricted free agency this offseason.

The Saints took that chance, signing him to an offer sheet that the Bears opted not to match, out of concern over his medicals, so Meredith ended up in New Orleans, where things are coming along nicely.

Saints head coach Sean Payton says that Meredith is “way ahead of schedule” in his recovery, according to the Times-Picayune’s Amos Morale III.

“Just watching him move around and, you guys saw him, he’s way ahead of schedule” Payton continued.

“And certainly where our doctor our doctors had hoped and even better. So, he’s going to factor in this year. He’s a player that we’ve got a real clear vision for.”

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Cameron Meredith will be placed on injured reserve due to a knee injury, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Meredith has had his injury issues in the past, having torn his ACL and MCL before the 2017 season and although this particularly knee injury isn’t considered to be as serious as his prior issues, it still will keep him out for the rest of the season.

Meredith hauled in 9 receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown this season for New Orleans.

Saints Sign Dez Bryant

The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran wide receiver Dez Bryant to a one-year deal, according to Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune.

Bryant will formally sign the deal on Thursday and is a far cry from the offer he received from the Baltimore Ravens earlier this season, who offered him a three-year, $21 million contract that Bryant rejected.

Rejecting that deal proved to be foolish for Bryant who spent several more weeks on the free agent market, flirting withe the Cleveland Browns before eventually working out for the Saints this week and reaching an agreement on a contract.

New Orleans also worked out Brandon Marshall and Kamar Aiken.

The New Orleans Saints have designated wide receiver TommyLee Lewis to return from the injured reserve list, according to NFL reporter Howard Balzer.

Lewis, 26, has notched only 17 receptions during his two seasons with the Saints.
