Meachem Due to Have a Breakout Season for Saints

In the Sporting News’ camp countdown for the Saints, the one player they targeted for a big season is wide out Robert Meachem, who came on in the teams Super Bowl season a year ago:

He has been an annual breakout candidate since the Saints drafted him in the first round in 2007, but last season he finally showed how dynamic he can be. He caught 45 passes for 722 yards and nine scores. If, after offseason toe surgery, he returns to full speed during training camp, he should be able to pick up where he left off.

“As a competitor, it’s tough (to be out with the toe injury during the offseason program),” Meachem said. “I want to be out there every day. But the best thing is I’ve still been getting mental reps, getting to learn from the guys, see what they’re doing wrong, see what the coaches are teaching them. So when I get my chance to get out here, I’ll do everything how they want me to do it.”
