Willie Snead at Saints workouts

Wide receiver Willie Snead hasn’t signed his restricted free agent tender with the Saints, but it looks like that’s probably going to happen sooner rather than later.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Snead reported for the first day of the team’s offseason program on Monday and plans to take part in workouts despite the lack of a signed contract.

Snead was tendered at the lowest level earlier this offseason and made a visit to the Ravens without signing an offer sheet in Baltimore. Assuming he plays out the year under the tender, Snead will make just over $1.9 million with the Saints.

Snead was suspended for three games to open last season and ended the year with just eight catches for 92 yards in 11 games. The Saints have added Cameron Meredith to a receiving corps that also includes Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn.

  1. 2015 and 2016 he was a reliable third down target, got off on the wrong foot last year, then apparently was in the doghouse the remainder of the year. Could make a comeback at a bargain price…

  2. I don’t understand, he was well on his way until last years offseason. Then when he was reinstated it looked like he doubled in size and didn’t look the same. I don’t know what happened to him, maybe he was counting his money from his 2nd contract that he didn’t get yet?

  3. After watching my team play Snead’s it seems every damn year, and sometimes twice a year, my well thought out and analytical position is this — he sure has weird hair.

    That’s pretty bad to lose your job to Ted Ginn.

    That’s not true, cam newton just can’t throw. That’s why the saints took him.
