Robert Meachem WR NO 7 Months

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.

Robert Meachem caught two passes for 34 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Cardinals.

Meachem's first catch of his second tour with the Saints went for a score. Drew Brees faked a screen pass to Darren Sproles and then found Meachem deep behind the secondary. It looks like he's already forced at least an even timeshare with Kenny Stills at the No. 3 wideout spot. Still, there will be far too much inconsistency to make a fantasy add.
