Wide receiver roster looking like a crowd
Meachem hopes to prove last season was a fluke
By LARRY HOLDER
METAIRIE, La. --Carrying six wide receivers on an NFL roster is the exception and not the norm. It leaves an interesting quandary for the New Orleans Saints to sort out.
Marques Colston and David Patten have cemented their spots with the team. Colston put up Pro Bowl numbers in his first two seasons in the league, while Patten proved to be the consistent veteran the Saints yearned for after letting Joe Horn go following the 2006 campaign.
The rest of the spots, which will likely be three instead of four like last season, will be up for grabs.
Devery Henderson, Terrance Copper and Lance Moore suited up for every game last season. Robert Meachem spent every gameday in sweats and never set foot on the field.
