New Orleans Saints
Cameron Meredith's First Catch Of The Preseason Was A Monster
Friday, August 31, 2018 3:12 PM America

Cameron Meredith came to the New Orleans Saints this offseason from the Chicago Bears in a move that the reigning NFC South champions believe gives them perhaps the most efficient slot receiver working in the game today. They made the acquisition even though Meredith missed all of last season after tearing the ACL in his knee during an exhibition game last summer, and this year, he has predictably been involved in a limited capacity during the Saints’ offseason preparation.

Cameron Meredith's first catch of the preseason was a monster -- 56 yards in the first quarter of Thursday's preseason finale against the Rams when he made the cornerback bite badly on a double move. Meredith has been off to a slow start with the Saints, in part because of a minor injury that sidelined him for a couple weeks early in training camp. So it's no lock that he'll be one of the team's top four receivers in Week 1. But a play like that will certainly help propel him forward. And his potential is still very intriguing in New Orleans' offense.

An undrafted free agent from Illinois State three years ago, Meredith had 66 catches against 96 targets for 888 yards and four touchdowns for the Bears in 2016, the best marks for the whole team, outpacing Alshon Jeffery’s 52 receptions for 821 yards and two touchdowns.

Meredith and Saints head coach Sean Payton have to feel great about this highlight with so much instability in the receiver corps. If Meredith is on track to return to his 2016 form, he’ll be a dangerous weapon in the regular season for future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees.


New Orleans Saints 5 player not on the practice field Wednesday

The New Orleans Saints prepare to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14, but there are five players not on the practice field Wednesday.

During the portion of practice open to the media, The Saints running back Mark Ingram, left tackle Terron Armstead, rookie wide receiver Michael Thomas, center Max Unger and tight end Josh Hill were not observed on the field.

Ingram missed two days of practice in Week 13 due to the toe injury.

Armstead originally suffered the knee injury in Week 2 and has missed six games on the season.

Thomas's and Unger's absences from the practice field have unkonwn reason.

Hill suffered a broken fibula when played against Detroit in Week 13.

However, Linebacker Craig Robertson and rookie running back Daniel Lasco were observed on the practice field. Robertson left Week 13's game with an undisclosed injury early midway through the fourth quarter. Also, Lasco has missed the five previous weeks of action while battling a hamstring injury.
