    The Shawne Merriman rumors that surfaced over draft weekend were at least partially true.

    The Chargers linebacker was available, and Kevin Acee the San Diego Union Tribune confirms there were trade talks over all three days of the draft regarding Merriman.

    In the end, the necessity of reaching a long-term deal with Merriman "complicated and ultimately thwarted possible trades," according to Acee.

    The rumors reached Merriman through the mouth of Chris Berman.

    "Boomer did report that I was on the move I checked well I think I'm already moving pretty good thanks lol," Merriman wrote on Twitter.

    It looks safe to say now Merriman won't be moving out of San Diego this year.

    Acee just pushing his agenda again. He'll find anyway to book Merriman's ticket out of town as soon as he can.

    Did Merriman screw one of Acee's female family members or something? :lol:

    Merriman took advantage of everyone by not getting the knee fixed when he should have had it done. Rivers got his **** fixed and so did a bunch of others. Merriman can go to hell for leaving his boys out there to battle. Trade his *** before more bad **** happens.
