Bad WR Deal Led Dez Bryant to New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints placed wide receiver Cameron Meredith on the injured reserve list today after finding out he’s going to need arthroscopic surgery.

That explains the signing of Dez Bryant, who will be paid $600,000 for the remainder of the season. Meredith, who suffered an ACL injury last season when he was with the Chicago Bears, signed a two-year, $9.5 million deal with the Saints as a restricted free agent. The Bears didn’t match and went out and signed wide receivers Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel.
