If you are like me this morning, you are finding out that the Chargers struck a deal with WR Robert Meachem late last night. They signed him to a 4-year deal for $25.9 million with $14 million in guarantees.
Meachem has never started more than 8 games, so this will be his opportunity to see more playing time. I think he will do well with Philip Rivers throwing him the ball and in Norv Turner’s offense. I guess he won’t be wearing number 17 anymore.
Meachem will be a big time deep threat which will open up the underneath routes for Antonio Gates. Either Gates will be open or you hit Meachem over the top.
