Report: Meachem takes deal with SD

Despite flying up to Buffalo for a Tuesday evening visit with the Bills, Saints free agent receiver Robert Meachem has reportedly accepted a deal with another AFC club.

According to USA Today, Meachem has agreed to a four-year deal with the San Diego Chargers.

Per the San Diego Union-Tribune the four-year pact for Meachem is worth $25.9 million with $14M guaranteed.

What likely happened was Meachem saw the opportunity to be San Diego’s number one receiver once Vincent Jackson left to sign with Tampa Bay earlier Tuesday after the free agent market opened. In Buffalo Meachem wouldn’t be the top target with Stevie Johnson in the fold. This is a perfect example of the ebbs and flows of free agency that no one can predict despite the best efforts of GM Buddy Nix and company to land the free agent receiver.
