    Merriman had been staying away from training camp because he apparently wanted assurances he won't be traded this season.

    The Chargers hadn't confirmed that Merriman signed and the player didn't returned e-mails seeking confirmation, but agent David Dunn said in an e-mail to The Associated Press that Merriman would report Friday.

    General manager A.J. Smith, not a fan of Merriman's celebrity-leaning off-field pursuits, didn't return a call seeking comment.

    The Chargers had a walkthrough scheduled for late Friday morning in advance of their exhibition opener Saturday night against the Chicago Bears. It'll be the Chargers' first action since their embarrassing 17-14 playoff loss to the New York Jets.

    The Chargers still have two high-profile holdouts. Left tackle Marcus McNeill and Pro Bowl wide receiver Vincent Jackson have refused to sign their tenders because they want long-term deals.
