You underestimate Merriman. If he's not the best defensive player in the league, he's among the top 3. The players in front of him are terrific, but teams still scheme to stop Merriman and they can't. I don't think we'll be able to keep every great young player we have long-term. They will simply command too much money. But Merriman is a guy that you must keep. The Patriots didn't let Tom Brady walk so they could re-sign David Patten and David Givens. There are players that are irreplaceable. Merriman is one of those guys.
