Saints' Marcus Davenport: Saints trade up to select 14th
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints selected Davenport in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, 14th overall.

The UTSA product is probably a bit raw after playing at such a low level of competition, but his combination of length and athleticism is understandably tantalizing with 4.58 speed on a 6-foot-6, 264-pound frame. It's fair to wonder whether he'll be able to make an immediate impact, but Davenport at worst should prove a high-upside developmental prospect who otherwise contributes part-time snaps as a pass-rushing specialist.

Saints' Cameron Meredith: May get on field in June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean Payton said Tuesday that Meredith may participate in the offseason program, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. "I wouldn't be surprised to see him getting some work in our minicamp based on our [medical] reports, so we're excited," Payton said.

In the all-important Week 3 of the preseason last August, Meredith suffered tears of the ACL and MCL in his left knee and spent the entire campaign on injured reserve. When the Bears handed the wideout an original-round tender in March, they opened themselves up to losing Meredith, an undrafted free agent in 2015, without compensation. The Saints proceeded to extend an offer sheet to Meredith earlier this month, which his old organization opted not to match. Chicago general manager Ryan Pace pointed to "our medical grades" Tuesday as the guide for his decision, but Payton appears to be far more optimistic about Meredith's chances of getting on the field before training camp. The Saints effectively replaced Willie Snead with Meredith, who will join Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Brandon Coleman to form a formidable receiving corps.

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' Brandon Coleman: Returning to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman will re-sign with the Saints, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Coleman opened the offseason as a restricted free agent but was made an unrestricted free agent after the Saints declined to extend him a qualifying offer. However, it turns out that Coleman won't be going anywhere, and he'll rejoin a New Orleans depth chart that recently added Cameron Meredith (knee) to slot in as the No. 3 wideout behind starters Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn. That means Coleman is likely set to compete with the likes of Willie Snead and Tommylee Lewis for one of the final roster spots at receiver, though Coleman figures to have a leg up given his effectiveness as a blocker in the run game.
