Hours after losing WR Vincent Jackson to the Buccaneers, the Chargers signed free-agent WR Robert Meachem to a four-year deal.

The deal is reportedly worth $25.9 million.

Meachem, a first-round pick in the 2007 draft, had 40 catches for 620 yards and six touchdowns last season for the Saints. He has 23 career touchdown catches.

Earlier on Tuesday, Meachem was in Buffalo, meeting with the Bills' brass and Texans DE-OLB Mario Williams, whom the Bills were also courting.

Meachem joins Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown in the Chargers' receiving corps.
