Merriman back to full strength?

Chargers to gather for fitness work


I feel great, and I look amazing, Merriman said last week.

Since Merriman was a local guy some of you may care about this. I hung out Merriman for a little while in Tampa when I went down for the Super Bowl. Apparently this month he is ready to go.

When I talked to him he laughed when I asked if he was playing this year. He could barely walk, had a very noticable limp. He said he not only doesnt know if hes playing this year but doesnt know if he'll play again.

Maybe a little of that was frusteration when saying he'll never play again. Ive never had major, or any knee surgury but I dont see someone going from a big limp, to feeling amazing in a month...

Maybe when said he looks and feels amazing he just meant how he looked in the mirror and wasnt making reference to playing football...

Seriously, if this is true. I bet steroids and HGH played a big part of that.

Re: Merriman back to full strength?

BTW...I absolutely LOVE the search feature on this board,so thank you on this...Very cool!

Anyways...Apparently,Shawn Merriman has been placed on IR with a calf injury...,but apparently,he MUST be released as soon as he is healthy from the injury.

Now,depending on the severity of his calf injury,if he were to be healthy in a few weeks and then released...should we take a look at this guy? He would be perfect for our 3-4 Defense and is only 26 years old.

Here you go...

Chargers | Shawne Merriman on IR

The San Diego Chargers have announced they have placed LB Shawne Merriman (calf) on Injured Reserve. Merriman received a minor-injury designation, which means the Chargers will have to release Merriman when he is healthy.

Re: Merriman back to full strength?

I care!

Specially considering at worse,he would be an upgrade at LB over Andre Carter who's totally outmatched at LB.

Fletcher
Orakpo
Alexander
McIntosh
are great right now...
But having a guy Like Merriman coming in to spell any of these guys for a breather or injury,would make me feel a bit better than BB Blades,P. Riley or Wilson. (although I'm very high on Riley)

The guy's a 3X Pro bowler and still young at 26 and wouldn't cost either draft picks or a high Salary to obtain because he was hurt all of 2008....Had a mediocre season in 2009 only playing 14 games with 4 sacks and 36 tackles and now is hurt again in 2010...

he could be finished,so it would be a risk in hoping he still can be a stud.
But the guy had 40 Sacks in 2005,2006 and 2007 combined.

All I'm saying is maybe he's worth a look,once he's healthy and released this season.
He's certainly young enough,to maybe get back to where he once was and at a low cost to the team.

And would provide good depth,if he produces plus we wouldn't need to draft LB's next season,as we would be pretty set for a while with what we have there. (Having P.Riley and Blades there)

And Fletcher can't play forever..

Re: Merriman back to full strength?

Merriman has all the coverage ability of Carter. If he signed here, he'd be a backup to Orakpo at the position in the defense that 98 plays, so in other words, he's not signing here on free accord.
