Patriots Maneuvering To Trade For LB Shawne Merriman?

    SRW Ex-World's Worst Site Admin speculates that the New England Patriots could be attempting to acquire Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman before Tuesday afternoon's trade deadline. The Patriots have released four players in the past 24 hours, clearing a total of $2.87 million in payroll space, very near Merriman's cap hit of $2.97 million. Merriman has struggled both on and off the field this season, but the Pats have a long history of taking these kinds of risks, and a trade would not be surprising in the slightest.

    Why not? Junior Seau will probably retire and the Pats are the best at reclamation projects and I think we know why.

    Merriman is not the player he was since the knee injury and he's done nothing this year

    I hope they don't. He's not that good with his injury and steriods.
