Wide receiver Robert Meachem is back with the New Orleans Saints after the Saints announced Tuesday they signed Meachem to a one-year contract.
In three seasons with the Saints from 2009 through 2011, Meachem had 129 receptions and 20 touchdown catches.
He signed with the San Diego Chargers as a free agent last season, but had only 14 catches for 207 yards and two touchdowns for the Chargers in 2012.
He was paid $5 million to cut ties with the Chargers on Saturday.
His salary still counts for $6.875 million against the 2013 salary cap.
The Saints needed another wide receiver after Joe Morgan was lost for the season with a knee injury.
