FOX's Jay Glazer has added to the report...
Shocker: hearing Bills strongly leaning toward claiming Merriman. Only way it doesn't happen is if they change their minds last minute.
... and now, Glazer adds perhaps the final piece to the speculative puzzle.
I'm hearing now even stronger that bills gm buddy nix has gone as far as informing merriman he's claiming him
Stay tuned, folks. We're basically awaiting official confirmation at this point, and should know something at around 4PM.
