New Orleans Saints receiver Robert Meachem: 'It feels good to be home'
 
Of course receiver Robert Meachem heard all the criticism in San Diego over the past year while he struggled to live up to lofty expectations with the Chargers. Meachem was hard on himself, too.

But the 28-year-old, who often speaks of his strong faith in God, hasn't given up hope that things can turn back around. And now that he's back with the New Orleans Saints, he's especially optimistic.

"That's life. You hear things. But you take a negative and you turn it into a positive," said Meachem, who signed a one-year deal to return to the Saints on Tuesday. "That's my mission now. To go out there and show the gifts that I was blessed with. Put my head down and just relax and go play football."

The relief in Meachem's voice was evident Tuesday as he returned to the place where he began his NFL career, just days after being released by the Chargers.

"It feels good. I got a job," Meachem said.

But more than that, he added quickly, "It feels good to be home."

I've gotta believe that's EXACTLY how Meachem feels after being birthed into the Sean Payton / Drew Brees family.

Everything he knew of the NFL was through two future hall of famers (and others) that makes most other teams seem like a joke (San Diego included).

After a few hours, I'm glad to see him back. He'll be no worse than he was in NOLA before.

I still think that spot could have been used for a linebacker.

Who were your top three choices? I mean the market's chock full of 30 something, injured LBs.

Oak, those 4 are probably better than what's left out there.
