    <font class="newstext"> After his three-sack day against the St. Louis Rams, Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman planned to speak with his advisers last night and discuss the possibility of dropping the appeal of his four-game suspension.</font>

    <font class="newstext">Merriman, who tested positive for the banned steroid Nandrolone earlier this month, maintains he was the victim of a tainted supplement. But he also knows he is unlikely to win his appeal based on the NFL's clearly stated policy that players are responsible for what they put in their body.</font></blockquote>
