I have been a big fan of Robert Meachem while he played for the New Orleans Saints.  I always keep him on my roster in fantasy football and can’t wait to have him as a San Diego Charger!

Meachem is  6’2″ and 210 pounds.  The 27 year old five year veteran pulled out 4.39 forty yard dash at the combine.  His career stats boast 141 receptions for 2,269 yards and 23 touchdowns.  He has carried the ball 15 times as a runner with one touchdown.  He also adds depth to the kick return team as an option for run back.

I did not uncover any arrests, unsavory behavior or attitude issues in my internet searches.  I am very excited to see him as an addition to our passing squad and expect to see him getting many touchdowns.
