Patriots sign ex-Saints WR Meredith

Wide receiver Cameron Meredith signed with the New England Patriots on Friday.

Meredith, 26, who has played 31 games over three seasons, was released by the New Orleans Saints on Monday.

He signed a two-year, $9.5 million offer sheet with the Saints as a restricted free agent of the Chicago Bears in 2018.

Meredith never regained his pre-injury form following a torn ACL in the 2017 preseason with the Bears. He played in six games with the Saints last season but was not a participant in organized team activities or minicamp this summer.

He caught nine passes for 114 yards with the Saints but landed on injured reserve last season due to persistent swelling and discomfort in his knee.

He was an undrafted rookie out of Illinois State in 2015 and played two seasons with the Bears, making 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns in 2016.
