The Saints had five days to match the tender before ultimately declining to do so.

Eager to add a target for quarterback Joe Flacco, the Ravens on Friday offered Snead a two-year, $10.4 million contract.

Snead, 25, is coming off a disappointing year with New Orleans in 2017.

With Willie Snead signing with the Baltimore Ravens, Coleman will compete to serve as the fourth wide receiver along with Austin Carr and Tommylee Lewis.

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. But their eventual separation became a mere formality after New Orleans signed Chicago Bears restricted free agent Cameron Meredith to a two-year, $9.6 million deal and re-signed. He didn't get many opportunities upon his return to the Saints as he finished with just eight catches for 92 yards and no touchdowns.

Hampered by a three-game suspension and a hamstring injury, Snead was limited to eight catches for 92 yards previous year. In the prior two seasons, Snead had a combined 141 receptions for 1,879 yards and seven touchdowns in a crowded Saints offense. Snead will join Michael Crabtree in the new-look Ravens receiving core.
