I think Royal will probably do better than Meach, if only because he will be counted on more often on third-downs and clutch moments. Meachum is more of a big-play type of guy than an every down utility player.

Would you say that's a good signing?
Think he'll be a good target for Rivers?
If you guys had the cap room, would you be happy if he resigned for the same amount?

Tell me a little about this guy. Thanks.
This will probably p/o some of the other guys on this forum as not being a loyal Saints fan, but I never liked the guy; yet it is okay to bash Shanle or Bush?!? I digress...

The first thing I didn't like was that we were drafting a wide receiver from Tennessee (see ongoing fluid list of JP's NFL Draft Do's and Don'ts)...

Second, I didn't think he was the best player available; I specifically remember wanting to move up a couple of spots and grab either LB Jon Beason or CB Aaron Ross...

As it was Ben Grubbs, who we just signed, went two picks later; Meachem leaves and Grubbs enters - go figure...

I don't feel he ever contributed as a first round pick should have; the worst part was at the onset of his NFL career - he wasn't even in shape!

WTF? A guy his age, his supposed talent level, his position and he wasn't in shape?!?

In regards to the recent contract - I guess the most puzzling thing is that your GM, who's got a reputation as an Adam Henry, made one of the largest overpayments on a contract in Free Agency History...

and yet he's let more established players walk or traded 'em rather than retain them with market value contracts?!? Puzzling that Spanos and son have retained him.

Such is the world of high finance and the NFL aka Morons who have it.

I like Robert - thought he did well in the role he occupied for us. He made some big plays. I hope and I think he WILL play well for the Bolts. I also hope he gets a well-deserved ovation when he comes back to the dome. I think he will.
