Maybe I should have said that we need another speedy receiver to run the deep routes and open those lanes for Moore and Colston like when we had Henderson and Meachem.

Stills and Morgan are definitely faster than Meachem. Moore is close. In fact the only WR on the roster Meachem is actually without a doubt faster than is Colston, and if you were to give Colston the benefit of one offseason without some knee/ankle/leg surgery and I'm not sure it's so clear-cut anymore. Don't get me wrong, I like Meachem in general, wouldn't mind seeing him back, but for a guy with a reputation of being a deep threat he is very average when it comes to speed.

Morgan, yes
Stills, maybe
Moore, no way.

If we sign him it will be a combonation of familiarity, productivity, health, and run blocking. They guy is always in on running plays.

Stills maybe? The guy ran 4.28 and 4.34 at the combine last year. Pretty safe to say he's the fastest guy on the team. Even Sproles doesn't have giddy up like that.

Oops, I don't know why I thought he ran a in the mid 4.4's. Yeah, I think 4.38 (his unofficial combine time) is pretty damn fast. I don't know why they call it an "unofficial time" at the combine. What happened?

But Lance couldn't break 4.5 if he fell off a cliff.

Meachem ran a 4.39 at the combine.

Re: SAINTS, ROBERT MEACHEM HOPE TO HAMMER OUT NEW CONTRACT,

I for one take 30m to run the 40yd (used to be 20m).

Is say Stills still runs that same 40, but 6+ year vets have added a little time.


Line em all up for a 40 and my $ is on stills.

With that haircut, he has been running for his life for a while.

Shanley made a tackle.



Should we have kept him?
