While I agree that at this price he would be benificial, we need to use the roster spot for a linebacker. We can bring the Meachums and Hendersons of the world in if there is an injury. I dont get this move. I never cared much for him anyway.

I just got a SC alert that says Meachem has signed.

And that's why you're not the coach...

Colston, Moore, Stills, Toon, Meachem, Graham, Watson, Sproles, Thomas, Ingram, and Brees.

Wow.

It's also not immediately clear what role Meachem will play with the Saints now that young backup receivers Kenny Stills and Nick Toon have emerged as players who look ready to make an impact. But it makes perfect sense for the Saints to at least try and recapture the chemistry that existed when Meachem was a part of their offense from 2007-11.

My guess is they won't try to force him into the mix right away -- as long as their top four receivers stay healthy. But the Saints know they can depend on Meachem if they need a replacement at some point. And in the meantime, if he starts to regain his prime form, then maybe he'll force their hand.

I think Colston is hurt more than we think.

Just a hunch.

I expect Moore to potentially take over the #1 spot with toon/stills/tanner/meach rotating #2 and a combination of more than one on the field at any given time.

I'm good with this, nice insurance policy against Colston and Moore's injury histories.

I LOVED Meachem when he was in New Orleans. I thought he was desperately underrated and a complete nuisance to cover. The amount of deep balls he took in, especially on 3rd and longs seemed to be unprecedented.

The reality is this though; if we have someone injured and we are looking to replace AND Meachem passes a physical including concussion tests then this is a fantastic signing for us. Fantastic. If we are bringing him in and cutting someone else then I don't get it without additional reasoning.

Most importantly, and especially offensively, I trust this organisation like NO other. We are dynamite. And at the end of the day it is also a business. We aren't losing a roster spot and wasting good money if we didn't believe it delivered genuine value.

Interesting Times!
