The New Orleans Saints released a veteran receiver on Monday.

The team released Cameron Meredith, who spent one injury-shortened season with the team.

Meredith, who missed all of 2017 with a torn ACL, signed two-year $9.6 million deal with the Saints during the offseason, after spending two seasons with the Chicago Bears.

The 26-year-old Meredith took a pay cut during the offseason, reducing his base salary $3.4 million to $1.3 million, but it still wasn't enough for the Saints to keep him around longer.

Last season, Meredith appeared in just six games for the Saints, catching 9 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown, before being placed on injured reserve in November.

In parts of three seasons in the NFL, Meredith has compiled 86 catches for 1,122 yards and 5 touchdowns.
