Well the Saints could print money off of ex-Chargers, wouldn't hurt to at least bring him in considering the linebackers can't stay healthy all a sudden

WOW that would mean we would have competition at linebacker.

Re: Shawne Merriman [merged]

he's a ptototypical 3-4 linebacker and has shown to be a weak 4-3 DE. Plus he can't stay healthy, I say pass

I think he's saying "EL - PASS - O" meaning he'll PASS on Merriman.

Re: Shawne Merriman [merged]

Well he was quoted recently as saying he's strictly a 3-4 linebacker and he hates the 4-3. So the bills moving to a 4-3 defense led to his release.

In other words, he wants to rush the passer, but not head to head with an offensive lineman, basically. I do think he could be a good 4-3 linebacker, especially for the saints. He's big, strong and still pretty quick. Why not give it a chance? Take veteran minimum, and come on over Shawne. Who dat!
