According to a report the Saints hope to work out a contract with Robert Meachem who is scheduled to become a free agent in March.
The Saints and Meachem’s camp had broached the topic of a new contract by Friday, one of the sources said. Of course, what will ultimately determine whether Meachem rejoins the Black and Gold is if he and the team can agree on how much money he’s worth to New Orleans.
Meachem — due to become an unrestricted free agent on March 11 — had only 16 receptions for New Orleans in 2013. But he led the Saints in yards per catch (20.3) and had a pair of touchdown grabs; and the 6-foot-2, 210-pound wideout is valued greatly by coach Sean Payton’s staff for his ability to block well down the field.-TheAdvocate.com
Meachem probably couldn’t find a better match for his skillset than New Orleans.
