New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem (back) and OG Ben Grubbs (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, July 28, but head coach Sean Payton said both should return to the field in the next few days.
Huddle Up: Meachem will need the extra work as he's batting speedy youngsters Kenny Stills and Brandin Cooks for No. 2 WR targets behind Marques Colston.

New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem (undisclosed) and Kenny Stills (quadriceps) are not participating in practice Sunday, July 27.
Huddle Up: Details are sketchy, but there has been nothing to indicate that these are anything more than minor issues at this point. At the same time, though, it's opening the door for more opportunities for first-round pick Brandin Cooks.

The New Orleans Saints re-signed WR Robert Meachem to a one-year deal Friday, April 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Meachem hasn't quite lived up to his first-round status, but any member of Drew Brees' receiver rotation has a shot at fantasy success; just don't bank on consistency.

The New Orleans Saints are interested in re-signing impending free-agent WR Robert Meachem this offseason. His return to the team likely will depend on the salary the Saints will offer.
Huddle Up: Why? The Saints have plenty of young receivers capable of outperforming Meachem, likely at a lesser salary cap hit.

The Dallas Cowboys could have interest in WR Robert Meachem (Saints) if he should get to free agency, in the opinion of Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas.
Huddle Up: With Miles Austin not expected back in Dallas, Meachem or another veteran FA wideout likely would be targeted for the Cowboys' No. 3 wideout role.

New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem is happy to be back with the team, where is caught 45 passes for 722 yards and nine touchdowns in 2009. 'Just watching him run around, he looks as good as ever,' QB Drew Brees said. 'I look forward to getting him incorporated back in.'
Huddle Up: Meachem, who played for the Saints from 2008-11, will likely only need a week or two to get back up to speed in the Saints' offense, and that could mean trouble for those fantasy GMs who were banking on sleeper WR production from backups Kenny Stills, Nick Toon and Andy Tanner.

The New Orleans Saints agreed to a one-year contract Tuesday, Sept. 3, with WR Robert Meachem (Chargers). Financial terms of the deal were still undisclosed.
Huddle Up: Meachem is back in the Big Easy where he at least had some fantasy relevance, averaging 35 catches, 567 yards and 6 TDs per year in his 4 seasons with the Saints. In 2012, his only season with the Chargers, he never seemed to fit in, finishing with 14 receptions, 207 yards and 2 TDs. Meachem is starting from the bottom of the WR depth chart, though, and will have to work his way back into the rotation before he registers on the fantasy radar.

The San Diego Chargers cut WR Robert Meachem. Meachem costs the team $6.875 in dead money on the salary cap.
Huddle Up: Meachem was a disaster in San Diego, catching just 14 passes in 15 games last season. Meachem will turn 29 in September and try to hook on with another team but his skills are on the decline.

San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem is getting limited reps right now, and head coach Mike McCoy explained Sunday, Aug. 25, that it is by design. 'We're going what (we) think is right for the football team. We have a rotation and a certain way we are playing guys,' McCoy said. 'The coaching staff sits down (and) decides how we're going to play guys. We think we are doing it for a reason and what we think is best. This is the plan we've talked about all week long. (Meachem) worked extremely hard and last night he made the most of his opportunities.'
Huddle Up: For those fantasy GMs still waiting on Meachem, what exactly are you waiting for? He's had every opportunity to seize a more prominent role with all the team's myriad WR injuries this preseason, but still has managed only 3 catches for 58 yards in 3 games and is still down on the depth chart.

The San Diego Chargers would have to take on $10 million in dead money if they decided to release WR Robert Meachem this season. Meachem has struggled during training camp and is guaranteed his $5 million base salary in 2013.
Huddle Up: As uninspiring as Meachem has been in San Diego, the Bolts likely have no choice but to hang on him given the injury issues they've had within the WR corps (Danario Alexander, Eddie Royal & Malcom Floyd) this preseason.
