METAIRIE, La. – New Orleans Saints released broadcaster Cameron Meredith on Monday, just four days in his second training camp with the team, a source told ESPN.
Former Chicagian bears hoped eventually returned from a major knee injury in 2017, but the saints apparently did not see enough to believe that return would be possible.
It's unclear whether Meredith suffered an injury but was spotted running out of the pitch early on Sunday and later posted on Instagram, "It was fun."
His publication was first reported by NOLA.com.
The saint will not save a lot of money or a place with a limited salary, releasing Meredith, who has already agreed to a 2.1 million dollar salary cut to remain in the team in March. He had to get a $ 1.3 million basic salary, with a guaranteed $ 500,000.
26-year-old Meredith initially signed a two-year, $ 9.5 million bargain with the saints as a limited free agent in 2018, and the Bears decided not to
The Bears decision raised eyebrows at that time, as in 2016 Meredith had 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns with Chicago, but Bears General Manager Ryan Pace explained that Chicago's medical and training staff's contribution led to the team's decision after Meredith broke his ACL and other connections during the the pre-ozone of 2017
Unfortunately for Meredith, the etiquette, the bear's predictions turned out to be ancient.
Meredith finished, playing only in six last season games, captured nine 114-yard passes and a push before he was placed in a contingency reserve due to a swollen swelling and knee soreness.
Meredith also does not take part in the OTA and miniicamp this summer, telling ESPN that he is cautious to be able to be fully robust for a training camp and a full season of 16 games.
The broad depth of the saint's receiver is still unproven behind the predicted starting Michael Thomas and Ted Jin Jr. They have a number of intriguing candidates for the other racing sites, including Trey Quan Smith, Keith Kirkwood, Simmie Cobbs Jr., Austin Carr, recently signed by veteran Rishard Matthews and unbridled rookie Emanuel Butler who was the breakout star in the first few days from a training camp.
Butler, 6-foot-4, 220-pound from North Arizona, seems to make one or two distinctive catches every day in practice and draws successive praise from the coaches.
The saints filled Meredith with a signing sign of a venerable offensive leaman, Patrick Omee.
