The San Diego Chargers and Wide Receiver Robert Meachem agreed on a four-year, $25.9 million contract. The deal includes $14 million in guarantees.The move by San Diego came just hours after Vincent Jackson signed a five-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While Antonio Gates remains Quarterback Philip Rivers' top target, the team needed to fill the void left by Jackson.
Though the Saints have a high-octane Offense, Meachem could never be relied on as a consistent Fantasy option, that should change now that hes playing for the Chargers. With Vincent Jackson gone, Meachem should start from Day 1 and we all know Philip Rivers has one of the biggest arms in the NFL.
As for the Saints, Devery Henderson and Lance Moores value should get a boost now that there is one less mouth for Drew Brees to feed.
