Robert Meachem WR NO 3 Months

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett gives Robert Meachem a 50-50 chance at making the final roster.

Marques Colston, Brandin Cooks and Kenny Stills are locked in as the top-three wideouts. After that, there will be heated competition between Meachem, Nick Toon, Joe Morgan and UDFA Brandon Coleman. Meachem's blocking ability and experience in the scheme are pluses, but his age (30) will be an issue. The Saints typically only dress four wideouts on Sundays.

Saints re-signed WR Robert Meachem to a one-year contract.

After one miserable season in San Diego, Meachem returned to New Orleans in 2013 to catch 16 passes for 324 yards and two touchdowns as a situational deep threat. Entering his age-30 season, Meachem will try and fill that role again in 2014 but should face competition from Joe Morgan and a rookie.

The Saints and free agent Robert Meachem have had "some initial talks" about a new contract.

There's no sense of urgency here, even with Meachem set to hit the open market next week. He'll turn 30 in September, is coming off a 16-324-2 season and flopped horrifically when he signed with the Chargers in 2012. If the Saints do end up losing Meachem, they can easily plug restricted free agent Joe Morgan into his role.

New Orleans and free agent Robert Meachem's representatives reportedly have discussed the possibility of a new contract.

The move would make sense as the Saints probably value Meachem more than any other team in the NFL. Sean Payton values Meachem's ability to block downfield, and Meachem had a disastrous stint with San Diego the last time he left New Orleans. No matter what happens, Meachem is unlikely to be a fantasy factor in 2014.

ESPN.com's Todd Archer expects the Cowboys to show interest in free agent Robert Meachem this offseason.

Meachem would be no higher than the Cowboys' No. 4 receiver if signed, but could brought in as a low-paid veteran to replace Miles Austin, who is widely expected to be released as a post-June 1 cut. Meachem, 29, had 16 catches, 324 yards, and two touchdowns in 15 games with the Saints in 2013. He'll be limited to non-guaranteed one-year deals in free agency.

Robert Meachem caught two passes for 69 yards in New Orleans' Divisional Round loss to the Seahawks.

52 of Meachem's yards came on a fluky fourth-quarter pass that should have been intercepted by Earl Thomas. Instead, the ball bounced off Thomas' hands right into Meachem's bread basket. Released by the Chargers in August, Meachem proved he wasn't dead for the Saints by catching 16 passes for 324 yards in 15 games, but is no guarantee to be back for 2014. Going on 30, the deep-ball specialist is headed to the open market.
