The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have agreed to terms with American receiver Cam Meredith.

The six-foot-three, 210-pound target has 31 games of National Football League experience, making 86 receptions for 1,122 yards and five touchdowns.

Meredith began his college career with Illinois State in 2011 as a quarterback before switching to receiver in 2013. Over the next two seasons, he led the Redbirds in receiving and finished 2014 with 66 receptions for 1,061 yards and nine touchdowns in 15 games.

He was signed by the Bears as undrafted free agent in 2015 and finished his rookie campaign with eleven receptions for 120 yards in eleven games. He followed that with 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games in 2016.

Meredith suffered a torn ACL in Chicago’s third preseason game in 2017, costing him the entire season. He then signed with the New Orleans Saints but injuries limited him to just six games he was then released in July 2019.

He was signed by the Patriots but was released in October of that year.
