Gone, Soon Forgotten

"I want to be with a team that will build its defense around me."

That was Shawne Merriman, explaining his holdout during training camp this fall, after missing the entire 2008 season and playing on a very limited basis last year due to an Achilles tendon injury.

He played on an even more limited basis in the first five games, aggravating the tendon and suffering a calf injury in game two. The Chargers placed him on injured reserve today, and will have to release him if and when he is ready to play again. So he will return to the field with a different team, if he can find a team that wants him.
