After injuries have limited him to only nine catches in the last two years, former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Cameron Meredith has landed on his feet with a Super Bowl contender after being released late last month.
The New England Patriots are expected to sign Meredith, though he will be excluded from practices and the Pats' first preseason game against the Detroit Lions as he continues to recover from his 2018 knee injury.
Cam Meredith Stats
An undrafted free agent out of Illinois State in 2015, Meredith has recorded 1,122 yards and five touchdowns in his NFL career. He had his breakout season in 2016 with the Chicago Bears, when he piled up 888 yards and four touchdowns.
He missed all of 2017 with a knee injury and was never able to integrate himself into the Saints' wide receiver rotation, making only nine catches for 114 yards last season.
While it's been nearly three years since we saw the Meredith that dazzled us in Chicago, there's reason to believe Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will find a way to make him work in New England. They always do.
