Some still believe Robert Meachem has #1 wide receiver upside, even though the former first round pick has never exceeded 45 catches for 722 yards and 9 touchdowns despite playing with one of the best quarterbacks in the league for 4 years. The Chargers seem to be one of those teams, paying him 25.9 million over 4 years with 14 million guaranteed to replace Vincent Jackson. They’re going to be very disappointed. It’s absolutely ridiculous that Meachem almost got what Steve Johnson got (5 years, 36.25 million, with 19 million guaranteed). In fact, he only got 5 million less in guaranteed money than Marques Colston. This was just a panic overpay by the Chargers.
