The Patriots released Meredith (knee) from the PUP list Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Meredith was initially slated to miss six weeks with this knee injury, but he hasn't progressed in his recovery like the Patriots hoped. The 27-year-old wideout only played in six games over the last two seasons, recording nine receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown, so he doesn't appear to hold enough upside to justify another team picking him up until he's fully healthy.

The Patriots placed Meredith (undisclosed) on their regular season PUP list Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Meredith had yet to suit up in any practices or games during training camp or the preseason as he works his way back from an undisclosed injury. With this placement, the veteran will now have to sit out the first six weeks of the regular season before he can be eligible to return. Now that he's sidelined, Phillip Dorsett and rookie N'Keal Harry will be first in line for depth receiving duties.

The Patriots placed Meredith (undisclosed) on the PUP list Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Meredith has been a shell of himself since sustaining a devastating left knee injury in August 2017, being reduced to just six appearances in his sole season with New Orleans last year. After he was limited in the Saints' offseason program this spring, he was eventually cut loose early in training camp. With the Pats, Meredith joins a receiving corps without much set in stone behind Julian Edelman (thumb) and 2019 first-round pick N'Keal Harry. Beyond that duo, the healthy options are Phillip Dorsett, Maurice Harris, Dontrelle Inman and Braxton Berrios. Meredith will be delayed in on-field work while he works his way through an undisclosed injury.

The Patriots will sign Meredith, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Apart from Julian Edelman (thumb) and first-rounder N'Keal Harry, the Patriots' wideout depth chart is fluid, so Meredith will now have a chance to battle for slotting with the likes of Phillip Dorsett, Maurice Harris, Dontrelle Inman and Braxton Berrios. His two-year stint with the Saints was marred by injury, but prior to tearing his left ACL back in August of 2017, the 6-foot-3, 207-pound Meredith displayed promise with the Bears during the 2016 season, hauling in 66 catches for 888 yards and four TDs in 14 games.

Meredith had a recent visit with the Patriots, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Meredith, who was released by the Saints earlier this week, could potentially help the Patriots if he's truly past the knee woes that cost him the 2017 season and slowed him last year. Beyond Edelman and first-rounder N'Keal Harry, there's not much certainty with regard to how New England's wideout depth chart will shake out, so it's possible the team may see if Meredith is healthy enough to enter the fray.

The Saints released Meredith on Sunday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Signed to a two-year, $9.5 million offer sheet last offseason, Meredith struggled with complications from the torn ACL he suffered in 2017, making just six appearances for the Saints in 2018. He agreed in March to reduce his base salary from $3.4 million to $1.3 million, but it ultimately wasn't enough to keep his roster spot safe. Meredith was healthy enough to practice before the Saints cut him, so he could get a look from another team this summer.

Meredith (knee) attended practice Tuesday but didn't participate, Rod Walker of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 2016 breakout star has been been limited to six games and nine receptions the past two years, struggling to make it all the way back from the ACL tear he suffered in August 2017. Meredith had a knee scope in November and was limited during the offseason program. He'll have a tough time pushing Ted Ginn or Tre'Quan Smith for playing time, but Meredith should at least have a decent shot at making the 53-man roster given that he agreed to reduce his base salary from $3.4 million to $1.3 million. Of course, he'll need to receive medical clearance for training camp in order to make his case.

Meredith (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Back in December, Meredith sounded confident that he'd be ready for offseason workouts. Five months later, it seems he hasn't made enough progress with his surgically repaired left knee to be granted permission to partake in team activities. Meredith was at least seen working off to the sidelines with a trainer, according to Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune, but it's not clear how long it might be until the four-year vet is full-go. Regardless, Meredith benefits from the fact that New Orleans didn't draft or sign a high-profile newcomer this offseason. When healthy, he'll compete with Austin Carr, Keith Kirkwood and Simmie Cobbs for slotting behind Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Tre'Quan Smith

Meredith (knee) has agreed to a reduced salary to remain with the Saints in 2019, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Meredith was previously set to make $3.4 million in 2019, but that number will now drop to $1.3 million. In the wake of a disappointing 2018 campaign in which the receiver played just six games thanks to knee injuries, Meredith was likely a candidate to be let go if he didn't accept the pay cut. Entering the draft, Meredith doesn't appear to be anything more than the potential No. 4 receiver in New Orleans behind Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Tre'Quan Smith.

Meredith (knee) expects to be healthy for the start of OTAs in May, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Meredith inked a two-year, $9.6 million contract with the Saints last April but was unable to gain a foothold due to complications with his surgically-repaired left knee. Overall, he scattered nine catches (on 10 targets) for 114 yards and one TD across 126 offensive snaps before undergoing arthroscopic surgery between Weeks 9 and 10 and being placed on injured reserve. While he's not a candidate to return during New Orleans' upcoming playoff run, Meredith is aiming for renewed health by the time the offseason program begins in earnest.
