Robert Meachem listed as one of Chargers’ third-string receivers


The Chargers, like many other teams, have released an initial depth chart. Here are some of the highlights:

— Robert Meachem, who will make $5 million in 2013, is one of the Chargers’ third-string wide receivers. So too is third-round pick Keenan Allen. Eddie Royal and Vincent Brown are the second-team receivers, with Malcom Floyd and Danario Alexander listed as the starters. For the record, Meachem’s salary for 2013 is guaranteed, per contract data.

— Rookie Manti Te’o is one of the first-string inside linebackers. The former Notre Dame standout was expected to start off the bat, and that looks like it will be the case.

— Ronnie Brown, not Danny Woodhead, is the Chargers’ second-team running back.

— King Dunlap is the first-string left tackle, with ex-Steeler Max Starks the backup.

— Rookie D.J. Fluker is the first-team right tackle. Jeromey Clary, who was the starting right tackle a season ago, is now the No. 1 right guard.

— Shareece Wright is listed as the starter opposite of Derek Cox at cornerback.

— Marcus Gilchrist is the first-string strong safety.

    Please cut Starks and let him come back to the burgh! Whimper sucks!!

  2. This is not the starting line up. This week they worked with the first team but that all changes next week. I bet Starks ends up at left tackle or they pick up somebody after the cuts. There will be a whole lot of players available after the cuts.
    Meacham was just another of many mistakes that AJ Smith made. Five million down the tubes. What a waste.

  3. The young receivers on the Chargers roster are very talented, so it is not a surprise that Meachum is lost in the shuffle.

    Te’o has been very impressive since day 1. He will be solid. The question is can he be great?

    The O-line, featuring offcasts in a battle at LT, will certainly be better than the line was last year. Cannot be worse. Gave up 49 sacks.

    Secondary very young except Weddle. Complete mystery as to how well they will do this season.

  4. I knew Robert Meachem was a bad pickup from the jump… He’s never had 700 yards in a year… AJ Smith refused to pay Vincent Jackson what he was worth but pays this bum 30 million unproven… That’s why we have no rings and players that immediately leave and win Super Bowls

  5. Vincent Brown will shock the world this year. I’ve been waiting for him to come back. I’m drafting this guy for cheap in my fantasy draft. it will pay off.

  6. The depth chart will change through out the preseason. Mike McCoy has said he’s shuffling the O-Line around to see who the best combo is. Gonna be good to see who gets cut and who they pick up when other teams cut some players after the 53 is picked. Football is back!

    Oh….poor Rivers. As an Eagles fan…I assure you that turnstile you have as an LT will lead to your demise quite quickly this year.


    You want a turnstile LT, look at the guy who played LT for the most of the Chargers 2012 season. Mike Harris ranked dead last in pass-protection for Ts according to Pro Football Focus. Dunlap ranked 33rd out of 65 in pass-protection. Dunlap and Starks are only stopgaps until the Chargers can draft their franchise LT next season. If either guy can give Rivers more time than Harris can, that is an improvement.
