your right. i wasnt even thinking about that. in 7 years eli for merriman could look like a great and even trade, nevermind the fact that the chargers got rivers out of the deal too. what bugs me is the amount of $$$ theyve had to pay rivers to sit but they had the $$$ to spare and that is the price you pay for drafting so high. not really the chargers fault.
