(WVUE) -

Wide receiver Cameron Meredith will join the Saints in 2018, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Saints signed Meredith to a two-year $10 million contract last week; the Bears had five days to match and declined to do so.

Sean Payton called wide receiver a 'must' for his team this offseason. With Meredith, the Saints are getting a big wide receiver (6'3) coming off a torn
