Chargers releasing Robert Meachem


Robert Meachem’s time with the Chargers has reached an end.

The club will release the 28-year-old wide receiver on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Meachem caught just 14 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns in 2012, his first season with the Chargers after signing a lucrative contract in free agency. He is guaranteed $5 million in salary this season, per Rotoworld figures.

Nevertheless, the Chargers are moving on.

The question now is whether another club gives Meachem a chance. In five seasons with New Orleans (2007-2011), Meachem showed an ability to stretch the field with his speed. Overall, he’s gained 16.0 yards per catch in his NFL career.
