    Then you move to option 2, keep him! Give him a 1yr deal for the league minimum, like I said the guy is only 26 and has potential through the roof, at the very least we could have gotten a compensation pick next year.

    Would Shawne have taken a small 1 year deal to stay a Charger? Seems to me that there was a lot of angst about not getting a long term deal from the Merriman camp...

    lol Shawne was going against the BEARS left tackle, Webb who wouldn't start on most teams in the NFL. Take it for what its worth but I expect 95, 99, 98 and 52 to be ALL over Cutler at Soldier field this November.

    Merriman was more about himself, he had that thing going with Fox Sports where he flew up to LA, then he had that lawsuit going with Tila Tequila, he played one game then he shuts himself down for the whole season saying he needs surgery. I dont think AJ had too many takers with a trade, as no one wanted him because he had no value.

    I do recall that the Chargers did attempt to trade him (at his request) before that season, but nobody was willing to meet Merriman's contract demands.
