    But he also acknowledged he ultimately had to accept responsibility for violating that policy.

    A day after the Chargers star linebacker decided to drop his appeal for his positive steroid test, he made a brief visit to team headquarters in the morning to address his teammates.

    "It's something that I had to do and I think it was appropriate to do," Merriman said of dropping the appeal. "I made a mistake, not purposely, that really violated the policy. But I didn't do anything on purpose."
