Saints bring back receiver Robert Meachem

Robert Meachem’s exile did not last long.

After being cut during Saturday’s roster cut down, Meachem was brought back by the New Orleans Saints and took part in Wednesday’s practice.

Meachem was a first-round pick of the Saints in the 2007 draft. He stayed with the team through the 2011 season, spent 2012 with the San Diego Chargers, and returned last season.

He caught 16 passes for 324 yards last year. His best season came in 2009 when he made 45 catches for 722 yards.

The Saints also have Brandin Cooks, Marques Colston, Joe Morgan, Kenny Stills and Nick Toon at wide receiver.
