Meredith Going To IR

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Twitter Guess we know who Dez is replacing. Still pulling for Cam. Come back strong. Fairly confident Dez is more then qualified to replace Meredith's production lol....

Re: Meredith Going To IR

No-brainer. His knee isn’t right. We knew the risk but didn’t want to think it would be an issue. Sad to say but the Bears were right to not match our offer.

It happens when you gamble on players with an injury history.

I don't think its all bad thou. Meredith gets another offseason to really heal and we get Bryant on a half season "prove it" deal.

Dez will at least be the guy Payton thought Meredith would be.

Re: Meredith Going To IR

So it is somewhat of a medical redshirt year for Meredith. It happens. The acquisition still could payoff next year or beyond, we just have to see how it goes.

Agreed.

I think Sean Payton still like what he sees in Cameron. He's proven that he can play at this level. Now the focus can move towards Tre/Dez while the kid gets healthy.

Wishing all the best & I'm hopeful he can return back to form next season.

With Thomas and Dez we have two very physical receivers.

Redshirt years are good for first and second year guys. This "redshirt" cost $5 million, or roughly $511,111 per catch.

At least now we know why CM has been MIA. Hope he recovers 100% from this.
