Toon never came back out the locker room right? I don't recall him being on the sideline after that injury...

I am looking at this way...

What have the last few players we got from the Chargers done? :hallucinate::)
==================================================
Robert Meachem joined a lengthy list when the former Saints wide receiver turned his production on a high-powered offense into a big contract with another team as a free agent.

Meachem was a total flop with the Chargers, catching 14 passes for 207 yards and two touchdowns during the 2012 season. Those numbers were bad enough that the Chargers ate $5 million in guaranteed money in order to remove Meachem from the roster when they made the cut to 53 players.

Now it looks like Meachem is headed back to the site of his success. Bill Williamson of ESPN.com reports that Meachem is “on verge” of signing with the Saints as a free agent.

The loss of Joe Morgan for the season opened a spot in the Saints receiving corps for a player who can threaten defenses deep, something Meachem did well enough to score 20 times in his last three seasons with the team. There were few signs of that player in San Diego last season or this summer, but the past success makes it easy to understand why the Saints are making a low-risk bet that a change of scenery was the exact opposite of what the receiver needed.

I thought we were absolutely insane for letting him go.
Robert Meachem should retire a Saint, and I'd like to see him score over the middle again before he does.

Good point... Prelude to an early retirement?

Hasn't he lost some speed already? If so, as stated previously, why do we need him? ...other than retirement talk.

if that's the case sign Henderson too so he can retire a saint.

Maybe "comes to terms" means we'll sign him next Monday instead of today.

Oh lord, the saints just can't leave well enough alone. If san diego was willing to take a 5 million dollar hit to cut him, then the guy ain't worth much.

It's either Toon's injury is worse, or something else. My first thought was that they were just bringing him in as a friendly courtesy workout, take a look, and then maybe some OTHER team would hear that the Saints were interested and decide to take a look at him, too. Then again, Payton is also kinda ADD about his weapons and his toys. It's a compulsion, he probably can't stop looking at offensive players even if he wanted to. He is NEVER fully content with what he's got until the very last rock has been turned over and the last tire on the lot has been kicked.

I still am not convinced it's for real, until it's announced he's actually signed. Meachem could be "on the verge" of signing, then get on a plane and go somewhere else for a workout tomorrow.

They just announced it on ESPN. Its official.

I'm happy about it. He's only one year removed from us. Have y'all forgotten just that fast how many yards and TD's he gave us the year before?
