Let's give the Browns a 5th for Quinn and We'll give the Chargers a 4th for Merriman! Quinn takes good coaching and definately an upgrade! Merriman should be 100% by next year.

Any rumors surrounding the niners?
Again, I hear the Chargers are trying to move LB Shawne Merriman. (for a good offer)
Also, that KC may be interesting in moving DT Glen Dorsey. From what I hear their coaches aren't happy with him.
Shawne Merriman would be a good trade for us we need a pass rusher like him, Another trade would be to upgrade our O-Line we need help there desperately!

cut Alex and trade for quinn !

How bout including Alex in a package deal for Quinn? I think Brady Quinn could be a good NFL QB. Hell, he's in Cleveland! Who can blame him for not playing well?

Are we really that desperate?

No our QB's are that sorry!
Since Parys has got his payday and went back into hibernation I think a move for Merriman would make sense. He would instantly come in and contribute on D and is really young.

He hasn't been the same since the injury and steroid suspension. In 2007 he had 12.5 sacks through 15 games. He only played one game last year and hasn't gotten a single sack this year. I do agree though, he is only 25 years old. I would have no problem trying to acquire him for no more than a 3rd and even that I think is a little steep.

Plus, DC Greg Manusky and Shawne Merriman have a history together. Manusky was Merriman's LB coach in SD.

Here's a link for trade rumors. It has ok info.

I hope we go after Merriman. It seems to make perfect sense, but what do I know? The Chargers really have no leverage because the Chargers already drafted his replacement and it's pretty likely that A.J. Smith is going to let him walk at the end of the season.

We could bring him along slowly to allow his knee to fully heal. I'd love to hear Mgmt's take on this.
