Re: Meachem breaking news

He's on the B-team.

Colston - Toon (Go to receivers with size)
Moore - Tanner (Sure handed slot receivers)
Stills - Meachem (Speed merchants)

While I am not a big fan of the move, I agree. I made a similar comments to Boltsfan more along the lines that Bree's throwing to a WR is a different has different potential than Rivers throwing to a WR.

So as of right now we have a 54 man roster? How long do we have to trim it back down?

We don't have any time, a move had to be made before we could sign we just do not know what it is yet.

As far as I know once the deadline for 53 passes there is no going over. Something has to have been done or the league wouldn't agree to the contract.

@LarryHolder: RT @MikeGarafolo: Another short-term IR designation expected soon: Saints LB Jonathan Vilma, per a source.

I'm very curious as to what that move might be. I love Meachem but, in my opinion, wide receiver is one of the Saints strongest positions. I can't imagine where they could afford to make a cut.

I think we have seen the last of Vilma in a Saints uniform.
