I would not mind giving him a chance, as well.. We will lose nothing if we get him for cheap..

Ol' Jerry Jones really looks smart for choosing D-Ware over Merriman despite his draft status.

Re: Merriman goes to IR

Who knows Merriman is from Maryland maybe it could be a coming home party just like D-Hall. I think Merriman is a Redskins fan and if we signed him it would be a contract with incentives based on playing time and production. I hope we give Jeremy Jarmon more playing time this season.

Re: Merriman goes to IR

I read the whole thread and think both opinions are true...He is done, but may be worth a look for depth... At a low cost we can pick up a system backer. Think about it! Is he better than Henson and Wilson...maybe. I think one man gang is going to be good but he is not protected from injury...Then Carter would be at OLB!

Get him if he is healthy and see what you got... low cost maybe high reward. At least he knows the 3-4 defense!

Re: Merriman goes to IR

If he's willing to be a role player or backup at first and work his way up the depth chart...with no attention given to his past accomplishments (none lately), then sure...sign him and see what he can do.

Shanahan won't give him a free pass. If he works his way back to his early-career form and cracks the starting lineup...GREAT. If not, don't let him on the field as a liability.

He's only 26, right?

Re: Merriman goes to IR

Do we really need proof that he was juicing? I mean come on, he was suspended for using steroids back in the day. And this was after there were rumors that he was juicing. And ever since then, he's had knee/other injuries, and has become a shell of his former self.

I mean what more proof do guys need? You want us to go to his house and find the empty needles? Doubtful he has those anymore.

I wouldnt be too mad at that. but they wouldda dropped a crapload of cash that could be spent elsewhere.

Merrimans value is extremely low being injury plagued and really only having 2 good years Im sure his agent will inform to take any deal thats offered so he can prove his worth on the field. We might be able to snag him at vet minimum and theirs always use for depth at lb and u never know he might get some more of that hgh in him and throw qbs around like ragdolls lol.

Re: Merriman goes to IR

There's this thing called "physical examination" teams give to players. I think, like, if he passes this thing, like, we should totally, like, sign him. It's brilliantly genius!

Re: Merriman goes to IR

Why do we need him? The D is OK and playing very physical. You want a NT, or another DT, just draft one or get a young FA, not someone on the downslide of his career.

Re: Merriman goes to IR

Why not give him a shot if it cost us nothing ? We def have issues at the LB depth position so how can you say we don't need him simply for depth ... i really do think this guy has something left in the tank especially for a vet minimum ??

If and only if its at the vet minimum he's not worth much else. What happens if he rejuvenates and has a 16 sack year imagine him on one end and RAK at the other
