I am a HUGE Merriman fan and love that we have him on our team for at least one more year. My personal over/under is that Shawne plays the entire season this year, which I guess is taking the over.
He is still young enough to come back from his surgery and he will not be rushed back because we have that luxury. My line this year: 25 tackles, 5 sacks, 2 FF on the tomahawk around the edge, 2 passes batted down, 1 FR and a guy that funnels everything back inside and helps Dareus and Meatball pick up at least one extra sack for ea. of them. If he makes it out of training camp healthy, I think he's well on his way to playing a full and productive season again -- finally.
