Willie Snead Will Play for Ravens After Saints Decline to Match Contract

Receiver Willie Snead has bid farewell to the Saints, which means New Orleans apparently won't match the contract the Baltimore Ravens offered the restricted free agent.

Baltimore will ink Snead to a two-year deal reportedly worth $10.4 million.

Willie Snead's time in New Orleans has come to an end. Had the Saints tendered him an offer, it would have cost $1.9 million.

He told Vanity Fair in September that "I'm the guy who would take a bullet for the president", adding, "I'd never walk away". But Trump tweets: "Sorry, I don't see Michael doing that despite the frightful Witch Hunt and the dishonest media! ".

The move was expected since the Saints signed Cameron Meredith to a similar two year deal and resigned veteran Brandon Coleman.

Snead was one of the most underrated slot receivers in the National Football League in 2015-16, totaling 141 catches for 1,879 yards and seven touchdowns, but he only had eight catches in 2017 because of limited playing time with a hamstring injury.

In Baltimore, Snead will join Michael Crabtree, John Brown, Chris Moore, and Breshad Perriman in the receiving corps that boasted Mike Wallace and Jeremy Maclin as the top pass catchers. They also have younger players like Tommylee Lewis, Austin Carr, Dan Arnold and Travin Dural that will compete for roles, but the Saints could look for a wide receiver with one of their eight picks in the draft this weekend.
