View Full Version : Chargers shopped LB Shawne Merriman during the NFL draft

Merriman can't be traded right now because he has yet to sign his restricted tender and the team that trades for him will need to sign him to a long-term contract.

Merriman had a down year last season with only 36 tackles and 4 sacks in 14 starts.

Merriman recorded just 4 sacks the past two seasons combined which could cuase a problem with any team looking to give him a long term deal, however he started his NFL career with 39.5 sacks in 3 seasons.

Wow, guess he sucks now that he can't take steroids anymore.

I actually thought that when the chargers moved up that high on the draft that they actually traded merriman to the Phins. Would of been a great fit. But I knew the minute they drafted Larry English that Merrimans days are numbered.
