Meredith joins Saints after Bears decline to match offer

Chicago Bears wide receiver Cameron Meredith makes a catch during the first half of agame against the Green Bay Packers in Chicago

The Chicago Bears have declined to match the New Orleans Saints' two-year, $10 million offer sheet to Cameron Meredith.

New Orleans has some familiarity with Meredith, as Saints wide receivers coach Curtis Johnson coached the wideout while holding the same position for the Bears during the 2016 season. Meredith will now join the Saints. In fact, he was emerging as the Bears' top receiving option and would have assumed that role last season had he not suffered his injury the third preseason game. He suffered his knee injury last August, so he'll have had almost a year of recovery time when camp begins this summer.

Because Chicago gave Meredith an original-round tender - and because Meredith entered the league as an undrafted free agent - the team will receive no compensation for his departure.

"In my situation, it was tough, but we were able to get some numbers like that done".

"I'm excited to get some Cajun food, some crawfish and stuff like that", he said.
