That's my thought also. We could have brought in a FA retread, but committing a pick means we must like him. I remember he had a couple of really strong games against us- 10 tackles twice in past couple years

Merriman moved to DE to revive his career and it didn't work, so I'd pass

Merriman is a risk for anyone. In 2010 he suffered an Achilles tendon injury in the first ever practice after the Bills picked him up. Bills put him IR and Merriman signed a 2 year extension with 5 million guaranteed. One year later, in October of 2011, Merriman suffered a torn Achilles tendon and the Bills released him. For 2012, the Bills switched to a 4-3 and moved Merriman to end, then released him.

I think Merriman is plagued with injuries and I can tell you from experience, if you injure your Achilles, you never forget it the rest of your life. Knowing our front office, Ruud was probably the best talent for the right price on the market.

If we wanted a DE wouldn't Andre Carter be worth a look before Merriman.

Probably could have been because the Bucs Dline was garbage. You dont really get the whole story when it comes to looking at tackles.

Yeah, I don't see us offering anything higher than a 6th or 7th round draft pick. He is coming off surgery and is value seems relatively low but he could pull a Sharper and revive his career.

Yeah, that's what I meant. More metaphorical than a literal comparison.

#Saints GM Mickey Loomis said LB Barrett Ruud has passed his physical today. So Ruud should be full go for Wednesday's practice.

He was the odd man out in Seattle; it looks like he was an insurance policy in case the guy they moved down to draft didn't cut it
I think it's a good pick up and that he'll see significant time on 9/10, and might even start

I doubt this is considered a long term solution, but probably plugs a hole for now and maybe a backup who provides some ST help
