The New Orleans Saints will not match the Baltimore Ravens’ two-year offer sheet to wide receiver Willie Snead, according to ESPN.
Snead, 25, was a restricted free agent and signed the offer with the Ravens last week. The Saints had five days to match, but declined.
The offer is worth $7 million with $3.4 million in incentives and has a $2 million signing bonus, ESPN reports. He will go to a Ravens passing offense that was ranked 29th in the league last year.
On Twitter, Snead thanked New Orleans Saints fans and ended the post with the hashtag #TrustGod.

The new scenery is also a chance for Snead to improve on his numbers, which fell last year. He only caught eight passes for 92 yards with no touchdowns. The previous two seasons combined he hauled in 141 passes and seven touchdowns. But from an earlier post on Twitter, Snead is eager to return back to form.
Done taking back seats & waiting for someone to give me a chance. I’m coming for it all this season. I WILL be one of the best receivers in this league, I WILL have a break out year & I WILL make sure they never doubt me again! #TrustGod #BeStill ??⏳
