Meachem breaking news

I believe the 'dead' money stays on the Chargers as they released him; had there been a trade, then the situation changes...

Settle down there Tex, we all understand your frustration - I certainly do...

We know the hand we've had; I was as frustrated that we're signing WR's instead of making moves to acquire some front seven (OLB) help...

We're an offensive team that needs a complementary defense and for better or worse, we stayed loyal to Will Smith and Jon Vilma and now the check is due...

Post Week 1, alot can happen, and does because of the CBA - Veteran Guarantee clause that if a vet is on the team at the start of the season, the contract is guaranteed...

We're so damn close to the cap, that moves have to be done in such a way to make sure we've got maneuvering ability to navigate the season...

We just need to make sure we get a win against our main rival to start the season and then get the rest of the house in order post haste/post Week 1...

That said, I just didn't like Meachem; he showed up out-of-shape as a rookie and was a tremendous bust; and I'm trying to understand what possible role he could play...

Yeah that was the biggest thing for me with Parker. He's not only a more well rounded receiver but was more versatile than Tanner. I like Andy, he seems like a hard working kid who could be good with a team that has less talent than ours, but I think on this team he beat out TWO more deserving players in Roby and Parker.

Chamberlain wasn't counting against the 53 man roster, so no.
