The New Orleans Saints on Monday declined their refusal rights and will not match the contract offer. The Ravens actively restocked at wide receiver this offseason, signing Michael Crabtree and John Brown in addition to Snead.

Hours after news of the Saints' decision broke, Snead tweeted a thank you to the Saints organization and fans, from late owner Tom Benson (who died last month) "down to the Chef in the kitchen."

Snead struggled in 2017 with a hamstring injury and had only eight receptions.

In the two seasons prior, the possession receiver had 141 catches for 1,879 yards and seven touchdowns.
