Ravens' Willie Snead: Won't have offer sheet matched
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints will not match Snead's offer sheet with the Ravens, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Saints made it clear Snead wasn't a priority when they tabbed him with an original-round RFA tender rather than spending $1 million more for a second-round tag. The team reinforced that sentiment upon signing Cameron Meredith (knee) away from the Bears on a two-year, $9.6 million contract. Per ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley, Snead settled for a two-year, $7 million contract with the Ravens, though he can earn another $3.4 million in incentives. His track record from the slot makes him a nice fit in Baltimore, where the other offseason WR additions -- Michael Crabtree and John Brown -- profile as perimeter threats. A 2014 undrafted free agent, Snead caught 141 of 206 targets for 1,879 yards and seven touchdowns over 30 games in 2015 and 2016, but then had only eight catches in 11 contests last year, failing to regain his old role after starting the season with a three-game DUI suspension and a hamstring injury. The 25-year-old is unlikely to approach his 2015-16 efficiency stats -- 68.4 percent catch rate, 9.1 yards per target -- while playing with Joe Flacco instead of Drew Brees.

Saints' Willie Snead: Likely headed to Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints are not expected to match the two-year offer sheet Snead signed with the Ravens, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Snead, a restricted free agent, signed a two-year offer sheet with the Ravens worth up to $10.4 million, which may be back-loaded or heavy on incentives. The Saints recently signed Cameron Meredith from the Bears and re-signed Brandon Coleman, so they have less of a need at wide receiver. The 25-year-old will presumably fill a need for the Ravens in the slot, while Michael Crabtree and John Brown are expected to be the primary perimeter receivers. An undrafted free agent in 2014, Snead compiled 141 receptions for 1,879 yards and seven touchdowns across 30 games between the 2015 and 2016 seasons, but never really got reintegrated in the offense after starting last season with a DUI suspension and a hamstring injury. Barring any last-minute second thoughts, Snead appears set to head to Baltimore for the 2018 season.

Saints' Willie Snead: Signs offer sheet with Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead, a restricted free agent, is signing a two-year offer sheet with the Ravens, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The contract is worth up to $10.4 million, though it may be back-loaded or heavy on incentives. Regardless, the Saints are unlikely to match the offer, considering they recently signed Cameron Meredith away from the Bears on a similar contract and then re-signed Brandon Coleman, per ESPN.com's Mike Triplett. Snead would fill a clear need in the slot in Baltimore, where Michael Crabtree and John Brown -- primarily perimeter receivers -- have already been signed to replace offseason departures Mike Wallace (Eagles), Jeremy Maclin (unsigned) and Michael Campanaro (Titans). Snead entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2014 and caught 141 passes for 1,879 yards and seven touchdowns in 30 games between the 2015 and 2016 seasons, thriving alongside Drew Brees while primarily working the slot. The 25-year-old never reintegrated into the New Orleans offense after starting last season with a DUI suspension and then a hamstring injury, catching eight passes in 11 games. The Saints won't receive any compensation if they decline to match the contract, after using an original-round tender on Snead. It was a clear sign the team considered him expendable, as a second-round tender would've likely prevented offer sheets and only cost about $1 million more. The Saints have five days to make their decision official.

Saints' Willie Snead: Reports for offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead reported to the Saints on Monday for the beginning of the team's voluntary offseason workout program, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

A restricted free agent, Snead hasn't signed his original-round tender for approximately $1.9 million, likely still hoping to sign an offer sheet with another team. His participation in the offseason program suggests he isn't happy with the offers he's getting and may prefer to stay with the Saints for another year before hitting unrestricted free agency next offseason. Coming off a monstrously disappointing 2017 campaign, Snead profiles as the Saints' likely No. 4 receiver after the team lured Cameron Meredith (knee) away from the Bears with the type of RFA offer sheet Snead would've liked to sign. Leading 2017 receivers Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn both are returning, while Meredith is optimistic he'll bounce back from last year's torn ACL in time for training camp. Snead visited with the Ravens a couple weeks ago, but he ultimately left Baltimore without signing an offer sheet. Per ESPN.com's Mike Triplett, Friday is the deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets.

Saints' Willie Snead: Visiting Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead is visiting the Ravens on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

This is Snead's first reported visit as a restricted free agent, with the Saints' decision to use an original-round tender meaning that another team can sign him without surrendering draft compensation. The Saints will have the option to match any offer sheet, but their decision to not use a second-round tender -- which only would've cost about $1 million more -- suggests they don't view the wideout as a priority. Snead came into the league as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and had 984 and 895 yards his first two seasons, but he opened last year with a DUI suspension and then a hamstring injury, ultimately catching only eight passes in 11 regular-season games. Snead would join Michael Crabtree and John Brown in a revamped Baltimore receiving corps.
