We tried to trade for Meachem??
 
Heard this on the broadcast and I know I can't be the only one.

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.

It must have been a player for player trade, somebody with a similar contract.I dont think we could have afforded him otherwise

Since we picked him up off waivers, do the saints absorb his contract he signed with the chargers and does it count against the saints cap?

We didnt get him off waivers if I remember correctly. He cleared waivers and waz signed as a FA

Errr... Excuse me but he was a FA and didn't have to clear waivers. This means that he was free to sign with anyone for the league minimum if need be.

The Chargers are my second favorite team.

Meachem was ours... We sent him on vacation. He was a FA
Drew was not a trade. he was a FA
Sproles was not a trade. He was a FA

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

Chargers haven't given us crapola.

Sam Rosen is a broadcaster (a pretty well-respected one at that) and those guys don't really talk rumors and speculation during the game. He seemed pretty matter-of-fact about what he was saying.
