Saints' Cameron Meredith: Finally breaks loose
Meredith caught two of four targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason finale against the Rams.
Held without a catch on 48 snaps over the past two weeks, Meredith broke out of his funk with a 56-yard gain on a blown coverage in the first quarter, later adding a 16-yard touchdown while working from the slot. Rookie third-round pick Tre'Quan Smith also had an impressive night with four catches for 42 yards on four targets, boosting his cumulative preseason receiving line to 15-189-1. With Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn locked in as starters, Meredith is battling Smith and Austin Carr for the No. 3 receiver job. The preseason results point to Smith, but it's Meredith who has the NFL track record and the sizable contract. While he doesn't seem to have any issues with his surgically repaired knee, the 25-year-old may still need some time to regain his best form.
