We tried to trade for Meachem??

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I believe we are paying him close to the minimum. Chargers still owe him $5 million for 2013 in a guaranteed contract...

After Meachem's touchdown the PBP guy said the Saints had tried to trade for him while he was still with the Chargers. They said "no" and then turned around and cut him 2 weeks later.

Have to wonder why the Chargers wouldn't have taken the deal and gotten at least something in return.
Have to wonder? Because they're the Chargers. I don't know what it is about San Diego but whomever comes in and runs the team has a brain cramp several times throughout the year. San Diego is literally paying Meachem tons of money this year while he is on OUR team. Add to that all the other talent they've let walk out the door: Drew Brees, Darren Sproles, Michael Turner, Vincent Jackson.

Crazy, crazy, crazy.

Nothing to thank the Chargers for.. One mans trash is another mans treasure.

Chargers haven't given us crapola.
A.J. Smith did give away the farm.

If they're butt-sore, give them Ingram. Then they'll be forever relegated to 4th and 1.

Re: We tried to trade for Meachem??

Who could the Saints have traded? Surely not Mark Ingram, since the Bolts already have Ryan Mathews (I realize Mathews hasn't set the world on fire, and has had some injury problems; but the same can be said of Ingram).

I sent an email to Triplett to see if he knew anything about this, maybe we'll find out.

I seriously doubt we did. We didn't and still don't have the money under cap for what his contract would have cost us. Picking him up as a free agent was the only way we could bring him back.
