The Bears have declined to match the offer sheet that restricted free agent receiver Cameron Meredith signed with the Saints, meaning that the fourth-year pro will join New Orleans.

Meredith led Bears receivers with 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns in 2016, but he missed all of last season after suffering a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee in the team’s third preseason game against the Titans.

Meredith originally joined the Bears in 2015 as an undrafted rookie from Illinois State, appearing in 11 games and catching 11 passes for 120 yards.
