Indianapolis Colts Meet With Restricted Free Agent WR Cameron Meredith

The Colts may be looking to improve their receiving corps after meeting with restricted free agent wide receiver Cameron Meredith.

The Colts need to add a couple of offensive weapons for Andrew Luck next season as the cupboard has become pretty bare at wide receiver with the loss of Donte Moncrief in free agency. General manager Chris Ballard may be looking to address this need in restricted free agency by taking a look at Bears wide receiver Cameron Meredith.

The Bears still own Meredith‘s restricted rights, so they would be able to match any offer the Colts would make to the 25-year-old receiver. Meredith entered the league as an undrafted free agent, which means Chicago wouldn’t receive any compensation if he signed with another team.

Meredith had a breakout season in 2016 with 888 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns in his second year in the NFL, and the former college quarterback also passed for a touchdown.

Meredith was set to prove that 2016 wasn’t a fluke last year, but he suffered a brutal season-ending knee injury during a preseason game that damaged his ACL and MCL.

He is reportedly unsure how much he will be able to participate in offseason programs as he continues to recover, but he is expected to be ready to go once training camp rolls around.

The Colts have signed Ryan Grant, but they will likely still be in the market for a wide receiver even if they sign Cameron Meredith. These aren’t the splash signings Colts fans would’ve liked to see heading into free agency, but they should be able to add some much-needed depth at the position.
