METAIRIE, La. (AP) -- The New Orleans Saints have brought back receiver Robert Meachem, shortly after his release by the San Diego Chargers.
The Saints announced that Meachem has been signed to a one-year contract for which financial terms have not been released.
The club has not yet announced who will be released to make room for Meachem.
Meachem was the Saints' first-round draft choice in 2007 and left for San Diego as a free agent last season.
His best season in New Orleans was 2009, when he had 45 catches for 722 yards and nine touchdowns in helping the Saints win their only Super Bowl title.
Last season, Meachem caught 14 passes for 207 yards and two TDs, both against the Saints.
