Robert Meachem is once again a Saint.

The speedy wideout that was cut last Saturday has rejoined the New Orleans Saints. The Saints signed Meachem to a contract while moving linebacker Khairi Fortt to the injured reserve-designated to return list. He won't be eligible to practice until Week 6.

Meachem has spent five of his six NFL seasons with the Saints. In 2012, he signed a contract with the San Diego Chargers but had a lackluster year, and returned to New Orleans the following season.

In his career, Meachem has totaled 2,800 yards and 27 touchdowns.
