Re: Meachem breaking news

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.

Re: Meachem breaking news

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.

Re: Meachem breaking news

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

Re: Meachem breaking news

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!

Re: Meachem breaking news

If he plays like the last few players we have gotten from the Chargers I'll be good with it.

Re: Meachem breaking news

Anyone recall that Toon was spitting up blood in Miami?

Bring him in, why not?
