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.
