    When linebacker Shawne Merriman arrived at the University of Maryland, he wanted to wear number 56, but an upperclassman already had the jersey. When he arrived in San Diego, he wanted to wear the number as a pro, but veteran Matt Wilhelm already had it.

    Wilhelm has agreed to give up the jersey. He'll wear number 57 this season, while Merriman will switch from 91 to 56.

    "There's no real reason why, but I wanted the jersey," Merriman said. "Matt was willing to work something out with me, so we're going to make the switch."</blockquote>
