Restricted free agent wide receiver Cameron Meredith visited with several teams recently and one of them is making a bid to sign him away from the Bears.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Saints will sign Meredith to an offer sheet. The Bears will have a chance to match the offer, but will not be due any compensation if they opt to let him go after tendering Meredith at the lowest level this offseason.
Schefter reports it is a two-year deal worth around $10 million.
Getting the deal done wasn’t made in a vacuum, either. LA was aware of the sensitivities in paying Suh while at the same time trying to negotiate a long-term extension with Donald, who missed all of the 2017 preseason in a holdout and could do the same this year if forced to play out the final year of his rookie contract.
“Before we did all this, we sat down with Aaron and let him know,” Snead said. “He’s well aware we’re going to work to get something done this spring. But we (said), ‘Oh, by the way, we’ve got the chance to acquire Ndamukong. He would actually get paid before you do. Are you good?’
The Eagles have agreed to terms with tight end Richard Rodgers on a one-year deal, the team announced Wednesday.
He adds much-needed depth at the position for Philadelphia, which lost Trey Burton in free agency and released Brent Celek.
Rodgers, 26, has spent his career in Green Bay since it made him a third-round pick in 2014. He played in 63 games with 24 starts with the Packers, making 120 catches for 1,166 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Plenty of football fans may feel the same way. But with the NFL pushing hard for safety (in large part to influence lower levels of the sport to follow the NFL’s lead) and most of the media pushing for even more safety advances and in turn (at times gleefully) predicting the demise of the sport, many of those who buy tickets and consume TV broadcasts and otherwise support the sport may want to see football like it used to be.
