Rip Van Winkle of the Day

Drew Brees' throw complete to....David Patten? Brees to...Lance Moore? Complete to...Devery Henderson? Something just doesn't sound quite right. For as potent as the Saints' offense is, they lack a true #2 target in the passing game. Outside of Marques Colston, there isn't much there in terms of WR's and TE's. Eric Johnson wasn't the FA signing they had hoped he would be; Billy Miller was outplaying him by the end of the season. All of this begs the question: Will there be a new piece to the Saints' puzzle this year? I say yes. Robert Meachem/WR New Orleans: This is one of the more popular sleepers out there. Hey, you try coming up with a deep sleeper every single day. It isn't easy. Anyway, Meachem has more raw talent than guy's like Patten and Moore. He is athletic and has good size. He didn't make much of an impact last year; injuries and trouble learning the offense held him back. Meachem is healthy now and has had ample time to learn the playbook. If everything goes his way, he could be a productive player with the Saints this year and possible for year's to come.
