Meriweather will appeal the two-game suspension he received Monday following a hit to the Ravens' Torrey Smith over the weekend, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Meriweather was punished for making forcible contact to Smith's head and neck during Saturday's preseason game. The safety will be eligible to play while the appeal process unfolds, but Meriweather's status as a repeat offender could work against his case to have the suspension lifted.
Meriweather was suspended two games for his hit of the Ravens' Torrey Smith on Saturday, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The NFL determined that the hit included forcible contact to Smith's head and neck. Meriweather has the opportunity to appeal the ruling, which he'll likely take advantage of and could delay the ban beyond the first two outings of the regular season.
Meriweather's deal to remain with the Redskins is reportedly a one-year, $1 million contract, cbslocal.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Meriweather is coming off a season in which he recorded 69 tackles and two interceptions in 13 games for the Redskins, all starts. He's in line to reprise his role as a starting safety for the team in 2014, which makes him of note in deeper IDP formats.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Expected to start at safety in 2013 after missing all but one game in 2012 with a knee injury.

2012

The former pro bowler struggled in 2011 with the Bears. With the Redskins he will be asked to play his more natural strong safety position. The team his hoping he will return to form which would include about 80 tackles and a couple of interceptions.

2011

Meriweather is trying re-establishing his role in the Patriots' secondary after an inconsistent 2010 season that saw him record just 68 tackles. When he is on, the two-time Pro-Bowler can help out those in IDP formats with his tackling and ball-hawking upside.

2010

Meriweather recorded 83 tackles for a second straight season and added five interceptions, earning Pro Bowl honors for the Patriots. He has good ball-hawking skills (nine INTs the last two years) and is a sure tackler. After moving into a full-time starting role last season, Meriweather is a good bet to put up similar numbers this season.

2009

Meriweather finished the 2008 season with 83 tackles (second on the Patriots), two sacks, two forced fumbles and four interceptions. It's official, hard-hitting Rodney Harrison has called it a career, so it's up to Meriweather, James Sanders and draftee Patrick Chung to lead the way at safety for the Pats. From an IDP standpoint though, we like Meriweather's chances of racking up the most stats in the New England secondary, as he is likely to receive the most consistent playing time of any of the safeties.

2008

Entering his second season with the Patriots, Meriweather is poised to see a larger role in the team's defense. He could push James Sanders for a starting slot alongside Rodney Harrison, but at the very least he'll be an important part of the safety rotation.

2007

Entering the draft, Meriweather had perceived character issues, but New England is a good spot for him to land with the type of players/coaches that will surround him. He's a talented and versatile player, who excels in coverage. His addition is a nice boost to a secondary that has been crying for depth the past couple of seasons.
