Cameron Meredith was released by the New Orleans Saints on Monday.

The 26-year-old wide receiver signed a two-year, $9.5 million offer sheet with the Saints as a restricted free agent of the Chicago Bears in 2018.

Meredith never regained his pre-injury form following a torn ACL in the 2017 preseason with the Bears. He played in six games with the Saints last season but was not a participant in organized team activities or minicamp.

He caught nine passes for 114 yards with the Saints but landed on injured reserve last season due to persistent swelling and discomfort in his knee.

The Saints signed offensive lineman Patrick Omameh to fill Meredith’s roster spot.
