Meachem will attend the University of Tennessee's pro day in an attempt to revive his career, Yahoo.com reports. A former Tennessee Volunteer and 2007 first-round selection, the 32-year-old Meachem has been out of the NFL since 2014, when he caught only seven passes in 11 games with the Saints. He recently spent 30 days in jail for failing to pay child support and alimony -- which seems to be the motivation for his attempted return to football. Meachem will merely hope to find a team that's willing to let him compete for a roster spot.
Former New Orleans wide receiver Robert Meachem will work out for the Lions on Tuesday. The 30-year old Meachem had seven catches for 114 yards last year. For his career, he has 178 catches.
Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem could see his first action in four weeks Monday against the Bears. Meachem, who has been dealing with an ankle injury, last played on Oct. 30 against the Panthers. After New Orleans released Joe Morgan Tuesday, the team promoted rookie Seantavius Jones to the active roster. The final wide receiver on Monday is likely to be between Meachem and Jones. "I just have to be ready to play my role when coach calls my number," Meachem said.
