Shawne Merriman [merged]

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Just FYI. Bring him in and switch him to DE? I know he was injured, but he is an ex Charger and could at least be worth a look....

Re: Bills release Merriman

Why was he released after all of hoopla about them singning him? Weird!

Career went South as soon as he was busted for steriods. 5 sacks in the past 5 years.

Yeah, he sucks now that he's off the steroids. Not the first guy that's happened to ...

Talking Shawne Merriman

Recently released by the Bills , I want him In N.O. Spags can get a fire out of a player like no other defensive coach. I like his play, Former Charger so they already have the connection with Sproles and Brees. This guy is Aging but ain't old so he will want to contend for a superbowl sometime soon. We can provide that luxury. And he would help us a ton either Pass Rush wise or being a Linebacker. Should Vilma Return this season , I like the Idea of Vilma Loton and Merriman as our Linebackers. Thats a Defense !

He would have a lot to prove to me before we stepped out and paid big money for him. His last contract was large. He's been hurt since before leaving San Diego. His Achilles tendon tear is bad enough.

Would he even be able to play??

Re: Shawne Merriman

I'm sure he would , and at this point and stage of his career I think he knows hes not getting a ton of money. If he can stay healthy I see it as a huge bonus ... Every charger that we bring in turns out to be dynamic

I hope they do bring him in to take a look. What could a look hurt? If he can't make the team then its nobodies loss.
