Now, it appears his time with New Orleans could be ending in the next five days, as he's signed an offer sheet with the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens have signed restricted free-agent wide receiver Willie Snead of the Saints to a two-year, potential $10 million offer sheet, ESPN.com reported, citing an unidentified source. They declined to match the Saints' offer last week.

Snead didn't do much of anything previous year with the Saints, catching eight passes for 92 yards, but he does have two promising seasons on his resume.

The 25-year old Snead accumulated 141 catches for 1,879 yards and 7 touchdowns during the 2015-2016 seasons, including a solid 2016 campaign, in which he caught a career-high 72 passes for 895 yards, to go along with a career-high 4 touchdowns.

The regulator said late on Wednesday it plans to finalise the air-worthiness directive within the next two weeks. The blades in both incidents showed evidence of fatigue cracks, weaknesses in the metal caused by stress.

Perhaps more significantly, adding Snead would likely take the Ravens out of the running to add Bryant. And they also re-signed veteran backup receiver Brandon Coleman earlier this week.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has attempted to upgrade a passing game that ranked 29th in the National Football League last season.

The Baltimore Ravens, who are perpetually in the market for playmakers, might've found a receiver not named Dez Bryant to join a group spearheaded by the aging Michael Crabtree and the inconsistent John Brown.
