    Damn if this guy got that much, how much will it cost for us to extend Merriman?

    Merriman's going to cost an absolute fortune and what does that mean if we sign him for signing Rivers, McNeil, Jackson, Cromartie, Igor, etc?

    I doubt that we can keep them all, but the reason for not signing free agents is so that we can resign the majority of our home grown guys. In regards to resigning Merriman, I would think that the three bolded players would be higher up on the resigning priority list.

    Salary structures are going to be VERY important as we try to sign our star players. Frankly, I'm not at all certain that we'll be able to keep Shawne. It may very well come down to him making a decision akin to Dielman's - do I want to be a Charger or follow the money?

    The salaries are getting outrageous. Soon no one but the rich & famous or corporate sponsors will be able to go to see a game. :tdown:

    I know this guy is pretty good, but how does a defensive player on one of the league's worst defenses merit this much money?
