Saints signed WR Cameron Meredith to a two-year, $9.6 million contract.
Advice: The deal contains $5.4 million guaranteed. The Saints inked Meredith to this offer sheet last week, and the Bears had five days to match with Meredith being a restricted free agent. Chicago passed, reportedly for "medical reasons" with Meredith coming off a 2017 torn ACL and MCL. It's ironic because the Bears signed Allen Robinson to a rich deal in March with him also coming off a torn ACL that happened later than Meredith's. Meredith will join Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn in New Orleans, and it's fair to wonder if the Saints will rescind their qualifying offer to Willie Snead, a fellow restricted free agent. Meredith is the clear favorite over Snead in three-wide sets. On Chicago's side, the Bears are now in the market for an early-round receiver in this month's draft.
