Kristian: Saints make solid decision keeping Meachem

The Saints announced today that they've re-signed wide receiver Robert Meachem on a 1 year deal.  

Meachem rejoined the Saints last season after spending 2012 with the San Diego Chargers.  Meachem played in 15 games in 2013 for New Orleans and caught 16 passes for 324 yards and 2 touchdowns.  

He's not the deep threat he was a few years ago, but for the money and familiarity, the Saints made solid decision to bring him back.  He likely costs the veteran minimum, (under $1 million) and is no lock to make the Saints final roster this fall.  

I expect the Saints to continue to target the wide receiver position in the early rounds of the 2014 NFL draft in May.

wide receive er
We need speed

good move
Meachem is a consistent player and everything. In addition to wide receiver we need to see about offensive lineman as well in the draft.

speed for what
Brees can't throw deep what good does it do to have a deep threat. Maybe for a decoy. We need to start looking hard at Brees replacement, one that can scramble and throw the deep ball.

Window is closing on Brees
We could get Mettenberger in Round 2 or 3.

WE NEED AN OFFENSIVE LINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's why speed.
Only 35 percent of the routes are deep. It's the crossing, combo and double routes that you need speed. Please learn the game beyond high school before talking.

Alabama's QB
Will be there for the taking in the 4th round. If so, the saints should think about drafting him.

AJ McCarron
would love to see the Saints grab McCarron and sit behind Drew for the next 3-4 yrs!!!

04/18/2014 8:09PM
Brees, what idiot would not want Brees as their QB
04/18/2014 8:20PM

We need speed, and we need you to buy new sunglasses.
04/19/2014 7:56PM
I agree with Soeed, "We", hehe, all need new sunglasses....
04/20/2014 12:16PM
Manzel? WTF
Brees had turned saints into champions and contenders every year. Manzel will be another Mike Vick with a sub par carrer.

Andy Tanner
Would like to see Andy Tanner finally make it to the field this year.
