The Patriots announced the signing of receiver Cameron Meredith. The NFL’s official transactions wire brought news that the team placed Meredith on the physically unable to perform list.

The Patriots have no plans to rush Meredith back on the field, working on strengthening Meredith’s knee and increasing his flexibility first, Michael Giardi of the NFL reports.

The Bears signed Meredith as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois State in 2015, and he became their No. 1 receiver a year later with 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns.

Meredith, 26, missed the entire 2017 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

He signed with the Saints but played only 126 offensive snaps and three on special teams in six games last season. Meredith finished last season on injured reserve after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.

The Saints cut him this week.

  1. Ultra-low risk repair job with ultra-high potential. Just an every-day move by the goat GM.

  2. Now I see why Flores signs guys who are injuried too. What fools. But i guess this gives him time to get on the PEDelman plan.

  3. My guess is if he’s going to get on any “plan” it would be more beneficial for it to be the “Ashley Manning HGH plan”…..it worked for Peyton & the League didn’t suspend him, so THAT PLAN seems safer to follow!!!

    8-8 coming your way!

  5. 8-8 for Miami is a stretch. I don’t see it. I think they will be lucky to win 6 games.

  6. I always liked this kid coming out of ISU. Smart and athletic. Was a QB. Unfortunate injuries but think he still has a lot left in the tank.

    Wow the desperation in NE camp is worse then we originally feared.

    Actually, it shows that the Patriots have the brains and foresight to buy low, pick up a good player with an injury, put him on the PUP list where he has a chance to fully heal and see if he can contribute in the future.
