I still want Marques and PT back!

Meachem went through a tryout at the Saints headquarters in Metairie Friday, WWL-TV reported. Meachem told the TV station that he ran 40 yards in 4.48 seconds and that he'll return next month to run routes.

Why?

Let's just move on, the guy was decent for a couple years but he's not the sort of guy you bring in to coach younger players.

I'd bring Devery Henderson back 100 times before Meachem.

Someone like Anquan Boldin or James Jones i'd agree with.

Wouldn't touch Jones with a bargepole but Noldin yes please,especially if they took Treadwell other than Colston he could not find a better tutor

Solid guy. Looked past his prime, which was just above average, the last time he played for the Saints.

Why would you want PT or Colston back? Obviously there were better options or they wouldn't have parted ways. I loved them too but to keep a player for sentiment is just dumb

And Meach wasn't much more than a role player the last time we had him.

This may be a draft smokescreen.

I think he's just trying to prove that he's a solid mid season option in case we have numerous injuries or if a couple of our young guys don't pan out.

He knows the system and probably still has some wheels.

Cheap insurance.

I believe PT was released because of the cap; I still believe that Colston has 1 more good year in him.

But not good enough where Coleman's volume is concerned.

We need to get younger, not older.
