The writing was on the wall for this move once the Saints signed Cameron Meredith and drafted TreQuan Smith. Still, it's a confirmation of Meredith's health, and perhaps Smith's ability to play right away. The team also still has veteran Ted Ginn behind star receiver Michael Thomas. A Saints bounce back in the passing game should create value with one of these three wideouts.
TreQuan Smith, a third-round pick from Central Florida, seems to be relishing the competition in his first Saints training camp as he's been one of the surprise stars through the first five practices. The 6-foot-2 receiver has made some of the most impressive catches in practices, making plays at all levels of the field while showcasing his speed and strength.
Smith has spent a lot of time with Drew Brees and the first team thus far, the story said, as the Saints seem anxious to see what the rookie can do. But realistically, Smith seems like he could be buried down the depth chart, at least behind the names listed above.
