The New Orleans Saints signed wide receiver Cameron Meredith to an offer sheet worth a reported $9.6 million over two years after the Chicago Bears declined to match the offer for the restricted free agent.
Meredith, 25, missed the entire 2017 season with tears in his anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament.
Meredith is a likely candidate for the No. 3 receiver alongside Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr.



Here are 7 things to know about the newest member of the Saints.

He went to Illinois State as a quarterback
Meredith was a high school quarterback and was not highly recruited. He committed to Illinois State and eventually switched to receiver and had an impressive senior season with 66 catches for 1,061 yards and nine touchdowns. That made him one of only six players in that school’s history to tally more than 1,000 yards in a season.

He went undrafted out of Illionis State
Meredith wasn’t invited to the NFL Scouting Combine but impressed scouts at Northwestern’s Pro Day. He went undrafted in 2015 and signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent.

He was prank called on draft night
Meredith thought he was going to be drafted, as he was prank called by someone pretending to be New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.

He was very productive in his second NFL season
Meredith caught 66 passes for 888 yards and four touchdowns in 2016 after tallying just 11 catches for 120 yards.
