Bills release veteran LB Merriman


Linebacker Shawne Merriman told on Monday that he has been released from the Buffalo Bills

“I didn’t fit the 4-3 (defensive) system. I’m more of a 3-4 guy,” he said..

The seven-year veteran played the first six years of his career with the San Diego Chargers, making the Pro Bowl three times. He continues to deal with the effects of an Achilles injury he suffered while playing for the Chargers.
Merriman considered this year as the best chance to revive his career after season-ending surgery in November to repair a partially torn right Achilles tendon
At his peak, Merriman was regarded as one of the league’s top pass-rushers, and earned the nickname ”Lights Out.”
