Robert Meachem: Hoping to revive career at age 32
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Robert Meachem on shaky ground
by Larry Hartstein |

Saints receiver Robert Meachem is no lock to make the roster, reports ESPN.com. As a veteran he must earn one of the top four spots to make the team, the report said. Ahead of him are Marques Colston, Kenny Stills and first-round pick Brandin Cooks.

Meachem could be competing with Nick Toon and Joe Morgan

"Meachem is the best blocker on the Saints' roster and a savvy veteran who knows the offense," the report said. "But if someone like Toon or Morgan proves just as useful during the preseason, Meachem's job could be in jeopardy."

Saints bring back Robert Meachem
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Saints announced Friday that the club has re-signed veteran free agent wide receiver Robert Meachem to a one-year contract.

Meachem is a seven-year NFL veteran who was originally the club's first round draft pick (27th overall) in 2007. He re-signed with the Saints prior to the start of the 2013 regular season and appeared in 15 games with five starts. He finished with 16 receptions for 324 yards with two touchdowns.

Meachem said signing with the Saints now should help with his preparations as he will be able to take part in the team's offseason conditioning program, OTAs and mini-camp. Plus, "this is home," he said.

Saints have some options at wide receiver
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

With free agency on the horizon the Saints have some choices to make among their receivers. Robert Meachem is an unrestricted free agent, Joe Morgan is a restricted free agent and Lance Moore is a cap casualty based on his 2014 salary. 

Per the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints have already had contract discussions with Meachem and Morgan. One or both could be back on the roster; the paper speculates the team would rather go with Morgan than Meachem though either one could play the deep-ball receiver role. The Saints could also opt to cut Moore, who is due to count just over $5 million against the cap.
