So the Bears
need a receiver huh? We all seem to agree on that idea. What seems to be a common disagreement is that Robert Meachem
would be a solid pick up for the Bears in Free Agency.
Ive written a few posts and comments stating my desire for the Bears to sign Meachem. The consensus thought on that seems to be a bad one. Meachem comes from a team, who like the last 2 Super Bowl Champions, are stacked at wide receiver. The Saints
have a very deep receiver group including Colston,Meachem,Henderson,Moore, and Arrington. All which imo, are better than the majority of Bear receivers. That being said, I think Meachem would shine in a Bears uniform. Buried in that group of recievers, Meachem has still put up very solid numbers. His stats being (09 - 45 rec/722yds/9td's)(10 - 44rec/638yds/5td's)(11 - 40rec/620yds/6td's).Coming to a team like Chicago would be a huge opportunity for him to showcase his skills. While he may have not been the number 1 in New Orleans, He wouldnt have to worry about being buried behind a guy like Colston on the depth chart.
Im not saying that he is the definite answer to all of the Bears receiver issues. But given the chance, Im sure he would not dissapoint. Check out this highlight video to see what I have seen. Maybe a few of you will join me in the sign Meachem campaign. That is if Colston,Bowe,and Jackson dont make it to Chicago first.
