Saints are not going to match Willie Snead's offer sheet with Baltimore, per source.

Willie Snead doesn't seem to bear hard feelings toward the Saints after the team declined to match the Ravens' offer for the receiver. Snead indicated Monday on Twitter that he's headed out of New Orleans.

However, Snead said he was ready to get to work and was looking forward to facing the Saints in Week 7.

Snead signed the Ravens' offer sheet of two years worth up to $10.4 million last week.

All are up for re-election this year in states that supported Trump in 2016. The senator "is reviewing his record before making a final decision".

Baltimore, who had also expressed strong interest in free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant, is most likely now out of the running for the former Pro Bowl receiver with Snead's arrival.

The move was expected since the Saints signed Cameron Meredith to a similar two year deal and resigned veteran Brandon Coleman. Snead had an impressive showing in his first National Football League season with 69 receptions for 984 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games, making starts in the final nine contests.

Snead joins fellow newcomers Michael Crabtree and John Brown.

The 25-year-old receiver is coming off a disappointing 2017 campaign that was marred by a three-game suspension to open the season, as well as a nagging hamstring injury.
