Obviously, there’s plenty of work left to do for Robert Meachem. He isn’t a finished product by any means, which is why he was inactive for the first game of the season and hasn’t been in the starting lineup for the other three.
But it’s hard not to like what we’ve seen in the little time we’ve seen it this year.
Somehow, the Saints’ second-year receiver keeps getting behind defensive backs, keeps catching long passes and keeps getting into the end zone. And if you’re looking for characteristics you’d like in a wide receiver, those are some pretty good starting points.
Meachem has five catches for 204 yards and two touchdowns.
