Robert Meachem is cut by the San Diego Chargers after just one season with the club in which he caught just 14 passes.

The San Diego Chargers have severed ties with wide receiver Robert Meachem as part of their roster cut down.

The 28-year-old signed for the Chargers last season on a lucrative four-year deal but struggled with injuries in the 2012 campaign.

Meachem caught just 14 passes from Phillip Rivers and again failed to make an impact in pre-season, leading to his release this afternoon.

San Diego open their regular season campaign against the Houston Texans on September 9.
