West Virginia Roughriders Re-Sign Former Super Bowl Champion

Wide Reciever Robert Meachem for 2019 Season

The West Virginia Roughriders have re-signed 6' 2" 210 pound wide reciever Robert Meachem for the 2019 season, the team announced on Tuesday October 23rd, 2018. 

Robert Meachem, a former NFL wide receiver with the New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers and owner of a 2010 Super Bowl Ring, was brought on late last season by the Roughriders to help bolster their championship run and will be returning this season as the West Virginia Roughriders go for their second championship in 3 years in their new home at the WesBanco Arena in Wheeling, West Virginia. 

West Virginia Roughriders Owner and General Manager, Gregg Fornario, discusses Meachem's return, "Really looking forward to having Meachem back this season, he adapted extremely quickly to the arena game in just four short weeks with us last year and will be a huge asset for us in Wheeling."

Robert Meachem is now set to join forces with the newly acquired RB/WR Noel Devine on the offensive side of the ball as the Roughriders will look to wreak havoc on all opponents in their quest for the championship in 2019.
