New Orleans Saints Re-Signing Robert Meachem

After spending the first five years of his career with the New Orleans Saints, wide receiver Robert Meachem earned a big payday in free agency from the San Diego Chargers, signing a four-year $25.5 million contract, with over $14 million guaranteed.

However, in only one season on the West Coast, Meachem struggled to stay healthy, and struggled to make any kind of impact. As a result, the Chargers cut him over the weekend, paying him $5 million to go away, and eating another $10.625 million in cap money the next two seasons.

New Orleans played home to Meachem’s best years as a pro, and his former team is hoping he can return to form. According to espn reports, Meachem is in the process of re-signing with the Saints.

There is no word yet on who the Saints will release to make room for Meachem. Stay tuned to for more updates as they come.

UPDATE: Meachem has filled the roster spot of linebacker Jonathan Vilma. Vilma was placed on the short-term injured reserve list today. Click here for more details.
