Robert Meachem’s Days Numbered In San Diego?

Kevin Acee of the Union-Tribune San Diego believes the Chargers must let WR Robert Meachem go at any cost.

  • A person familiar with the situation told Acee that Meachem’s body is “broken down.
  • Acee adds that Meachem is no longer able to “separate, runs poor routes and has undependable hands, and he has no business being on the field.”

Meachem, 28, admitted that he gave up on a ball thrown by backup QB Charlie Whitehurst which resulted in an interception. He also ran the wrong route on a previous play.

San Diego signed Meachem to a four-year contract worth $25.9 million and included $14 million guaranteed in the hope that would be able to mitigate the loss of Vincent Jackson to some degree. Clearly, that hasn’t been the case. Meachem is owed $5 million for the next two season with another $6.5 million coming his way in 2015.

We’ll have to see if he’s able to make the Chargers 53-man in the next few weeks.

    dump him, he is a distraction to the other receivers. Another poor choice by the previous GM/coaching tamdum. Its time to move forward and take the lumps of the past bad decisions. We seem to be on a better path now.
