Saints won't match Ravens' offer sheet for Willie Snead

The Baltimore Ravens signed Willie Snead to a two-year, $10.4 million offer sheet, and the New Orleans Saints have decided against matching the contract, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

New Orleans signed Chicago's Cameron Meredith to a two-year, $9.6 million deal last week and brought back Brandon Coleman earlier this week.

CBS Sports first reported the Saints planned to decline to match the offer on Saturday.

The Baltimore Ravens are adding yet another wide receiver this offseason. However, the move would not preclude the Ravens from taking a wide receiver early in this week's National Football League draft.

Snead joins fellow newcomers Michael Crabtree and John Brown.

"Now that Baltimore is acquiring former Saints' WR Willie Snead, Ravens are out on Dez Bryant".

The Saints had shown some interest in retaining Snead, who was a restricted free agent.

Suspended for three games after a June 2017 arrest for drunk driving, Snead was injured when he was eligible to play again and never regained his place in the offense, catching just eight passes for 92 yards while playing 259 snaps. The Ravens' top two wide receivers from last season - Mike Wallace (free agent) and Jeremy Maclin (cut) - are now not on the team.

The 25-year-old Snead was a dependable option for Drew Brees in 2015 and 2016, though.

Extending drives has been an on-going problem for Baltimore.
