Robert Meachem, who now calls New Orleans home, hopes trust earns him another stint with Saints

Unless he signs for Saints-friendly/vet's minimum salary I don't think Saints re-sign him.

Wide receiver Robert Meachem grew up in Oklahoma and went to college at Tennessee, but he now makes his home in New Orleans, where he's played for six of his seven NFL seasons.

So it goes without saying that he would love to return to the New Orleans Saints in 2015. He just doesn't know whether it will happen.

"When you sign a one-year deal, there's always uncertainty," Meachem said. "You just hope it was enough to sway them to bring you back, or whatever else the Lord has planned for you.

"Yes, I would love to be here. But you can't control what you can't control. You just have to leave it in the good Lord's hands, and at the end of the day, he'll put you in the place you need to be in anyway."

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Sure, throw him in the mix. Why not? If someone beats him out, then great

He'll always be just a phone call away. Who knows how quickly the young guys will develop so I'm sure Payton and Brees will welcome him back if we need him.

Toon has passed him. The only way he sticks around is if Colston leaves, and even then he's still only the #4 and maybe #5 depending on who else we bring in.

He's cheap, reliable, experienced.
Why not?

I would be surprised if that happens. Thanks for the memories Meach.

They'll probably have him in training camp. Maybe he has the strong, veteran presence that the team needs and will stick around for that reason?

I am ready for a bunch of new young bloods. Roster spots are too few and we have had too many hanger owners as it is. If he makes the roster next year I think it will be another failure by our personnel team.
