Robert Meachem on shaky ground


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Saints receiver Robert Meachem is no lock to make the roster, reports ESPN.com. As a veteran he must earn one of the top four spots to make the team, the report said. Ahead of him are Marques Colston, Kenny Stills and first-round pick Brandin Cooks.

Meachem could be competing with Nick Toon and Joe Morgan

"Meachem is the best blocker on the Saints' roster and a savvy veteran who knows the offense," the report said. "But if someone like Toon or Morgan proves just as useful during the preseason, Meachem's job could be in jeopardy."


Saints bring back Robert Meachem


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/18/2014) The Saints announced Friday that the club has re-signed veteran free agent wide receiver Robert Meachem to a one-year contract.

Meachem is a seven-year NFL veteran who was originally the club's first round draft pick (27th overall) in 2007. He re-signed with the Saints prior to the start of the 2013 regular season and appeared in 15 games with five starts. He finished with 16 receptions for 324 yards with two touchdowns.

Meachem said signing with the Saints now should help with his preparations as he will be able to take part in the team's offseason conditioning program, OTAs and mini-camp. Plus, "this is home," he said.


Saints have some options at wide receiver


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/6/2014) With free agency on the horizon the Saints have some choices to make among their receivers. Robert Meachem is an unrestricted free agent, Joe Morgan is a restricted free agent and Lance Moore is a cap casualty based on his 2014 salary. 

Per the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints have already had contract discussions with Meachem and Morgan. One or both could be back on the roster; the paper speculates the team would rather go with Morgan than Meachem though either one could play the deep-ball receiver role. The Saints could also opt to cut Moore, who is due to count just over $5 million against the cap. 


Saints show interest in re-signing Robert Meachem


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) The Saints have shown interest in re-signing impending free agent receiver Robert Meachem, who averaged 20.3 yards per catch in a situational role last year, reports ESPN.com. Meachem caught 16 balls for 324 yards and two touchdowns, adding three catches for 109 yards in the playoffs.

The website notes New Orleans values Meachem as a run blocker and because he's a deep threat on play-action fakes. Whether he returns could depend on wideout Joe Morgan's recovery from the knee injury that kept him out all of last season.


Robert Meachem receives a friendly tip in loss to Seattle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) It took Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem most of the game to get unleashed Saturday against the Seahawks. But he finally did some damage - with a little bit of luck.

Meachem caught one pass for 17 yards in the third quarter, then snagged another for 52 yards with five minutes left in the game. He was the beneficiary of a lucky bounce when a woefully underthrown pass by quarterback Drew Brees was tipped into his hands.


Saints get contributions from role players in Wild Card win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) The Saints received contributions from several role players during Saturday's Wild Card victory over the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Robert Meachem caught his only target -- a 40-yard pass from Drew Brees in the fourth quarter. Kenny Stills was targeted four times and finished with three grabs for 35 yards while Benjamin Watson and Josh Hill only had one catch. Watson finished with 27 yards and Hill ended the game with nine yards. In the running game, Khiry Robinson finished as the team's second-leading rusher, with eight carries for 45 yards (5.6 yards per carry).

Two Saints wideouts score Sunday on only snags


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Saints wideouts Kenny Stills and Robert Meachem had two things in common on Sunday. They both caught just one pass and they both visited the end zone.

Meachen beat Tampa Bay cornerback Darrelle Revis midway through the second quarter for a 41-yard score, then Still grabbed a 76-yarder off badly broken coverage five minutes later to stretch the lead to 28-14. But both were blanked thereafter.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints receiver trio largely silent in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) The Saints didn't get much production from their backup wide receivers in Week 12, as Drew Brees didn't pass for his typically gaudy totals in a 17-13 win over the Falcons Thursday.

The Saints finished with 278 yards passing, a relatively low number for them. As a result, Lance Moore, Kenny Stills and Robert Meachem were all held to less than 25 yards in the win.

Moore finished with two receptions for 22 yards on two targets, and Stills also had two catches for 22 yards, though he was targeted three times. Meachem brought up the rear with just one catch for 18 yards on three targets.

The Saints face the Seahawks in Week 13, in a Monday night matchup. 


Robert Meachem makes most of his chances on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Saints wideout Robert Meachem caught just two passes in the defeat of San Francisco on Sunday. But he sure ran a long way with them.

Meachem took a short slant from Drew Brees 44 yards late in the first quarter to key a touchdown drive and added a 34-yard reception in the fourth to set up a key field goal. He finished with 78 yards, nearly half of his previous total this year of 159.

His Saints play their Week 1 game in Atlanta on Thursday Night Football.

 


Saints get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Robert Meachem falls 7 yards shy of 100-yard game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem had his best game of the season Week 9 at N.Y. Jets, helping fill in the void created by wide receiver Marques Colston, who was out with a knee injury. Meachem totaled a season-high 93 yards on four catches.

Meachem's biggest play of the game came on a 60-yard reception in the second quarter. However, it could have resulted in an 80-yard touchdown, but Meachem had to slow down to wait for Drew Brees' pass after he blew past the secondary.

Meachem, who came into the game with just three catches for 49 yards, was targeted five times in the 26-20 loss. The Saints return to action Week 10 vs. Dallas. 


Josh Hill, Robert Meachem, Jed Collins among Drew Brees' targets


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2013) Saints quarterback Drew Brees did his best to spread the ball around Week 8 against the Bills, completing passes to 10 different receivers, which means it wasn't just the superstars that contributed, but also fringe players like tight end Josh Hill, wide receiver Robert Meachem and fullback Jed Collins.

Hill had two catches (on two targets) for 17 yards. Meachem had one catch (on three targets) for 15 yards. Collins had one catch (on one target) for 8 yards.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Former New England tight end Benjamin Watson caught three of the four passes thrown his way for 61 yards. Fullback Jed Collins had one carry for one yard and one catch for a 3-yard gain. Wide receiver Nick Toon was targeted four times and caught a 7-yard pass from Drew Brees in the first quarter for his only catch of the day. Robert Meachem was targeted only once and was held without a grab.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Eight Saints caught passes from Drew Brees in the win over Miami, including rookie receiver Nick Toon and fullback Jed Collins. Toon caught his first NFL pass for 18 yards but also had a bad drop. Collins brought in his only target for 6 yards.

Robert Meachem overtaking Kenny Stills as deep threat?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2013) Wide receiver Robert Meachem, back with the Saints after spending a year in San Diego, made his first catch of the season count Week 3 against the Cardinals, hauling in a 27-yard bomb for a touchdown in the first quarter. He was targeted twice in the contest, catching both passes for 34 yards.

Meanwhile, Kenny Stills, who was expected to catch the deep balls from quarterback Drew Brees this season, couldn't connect on either of his targets in Week 3. He has just three catches this season and only one of more than 20 yards.

Neither player is expected to see a high number of looks playing behind tight end Jimmy Graham and wide receiver Marques Colston, but the two will continue to compete for whatever they can get downfield Week 4 against the Dolphins.

Robert Meachem let go by Chargers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2013) Wide receiver Robert Meachem was one of the better deep threats in the NFL not long ago. But some believe his speed has faded and now he has faded away from the Chargers, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The waiving of Meachem might have been anticipated considering his falling production. After three consistent years in New Orleans in which he caught 129 passes for 1.980 yards and 20 touchdowns, Meachem manage just 14 receptions for 207 yards with the Chargers in 2012. His playing time diminished in the last half of the season, when he snagged just two passes.

That was quite disappointing considering he had signed a four-year free agent contract with the team during the offseason for $25.9 million, including $14 million guaranteed.

Meachem couldn't convince the Chargers during this preseason that he would be any better. Making matters worse, he also sustained a concussion Thursday in the preseason finale.

Robert Meachem puts up 0-fer in preseason opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2013) Chargers wide receiver Robert Meachem failed to stand out in Thursday's preseason opener against the Seahawks.

Meachem, who is battling for a spot on the depth chart, failed to bring in a reception in the game, despite being targeted twice. He did not play much with the first unit in the game, a sign that he may be slipping down the depth chart.
