Found August 12, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The San Diego Chargers were hoping they'd found a suitable wide out to bolster their group of receivers when they acquired Robert Meachum last year. Unfortunately for San Diego, Meachum hasn't been the player they hoped he would be since joining the team. In fact, one Chargers' source told Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego that the former first-round pick is "broken down." Acee said that Meachum, who has undergone multiple knee surgeries over his time in the NFL, would be justified to be cut by the Chargers despite his guaranteed $5 million salary. A source he spoke with adds that the wide out's body has degenerated since his time with the Saints when there was hope that he would be an impact receiver in the league. While he's only turning 29 this season, the multiple knee injuries appear to have caught up to Meachum. He's currently buried on the Chargers' depth chart, and even with Danario Alexander's ACL tear he could have a hard time making the team. Beyond his physical limitations, Meachum has been said to look lost in the Chargers' current system. Considering they are unlikely to find a trade partner for Meachum, it wouldn't be shocking to see the team simply part ways with him before the start of the regular season.
