    Re: Ravens Still Interested in Merriman?



    He might have 3 games in him this year... and that's a stretch.
    After 5 years of early exits, the journey is finally complete.

    Wow, thanks for the Post.

    I also would like the RAVENS to sign him, its not like we don't need him. Because we do, only thing that worries me, is what Worries anyone. Its his History of being Hurt ALL THE TIME.

    Thinking back, weren't we one of the main teams he wanted to be a part of? I think that Bills were just doing him a favor since he didn't fit in the scheme they are now running with that awesome front 4. They let him go now so that he can catch on early with someone. I still don't know if that place is here. We do have the UMD connection here and I'm sure that he wants to play with Ray.

    Its a low risk high reward move. If he is healthy it will pay great dividends but if not there is not much risk involved.

    Had we wanted Andre Carter we would have signed him by now unless we are waiting for the final cuts to see if any vets are cut for cap reasons.

    Re: Any interest in Shawne Merriman?

    Anybody want to acknowledge that the injury he had such a hard time recovering from is actually his achilles tendon. If he is indeed finally healthy as some reports are suggesting, maybe hes a good stop gap to fill in for suggs this year, and possibly next if there are complications.

    I thought it was Adam Caplan???

    In the other thread you said Adam Caplan...not Aaron Wilson...

    Are you trying to "josh" us over here???

    I didn't want Merriman when the Chargers released him and was happy the Bills beat us to him. I was more worried that the Ravens would still have interested. It's amazing because he's all of 28 and has been beat up and hurt for at least 4 years.

    Still, whats the risk? THe ravens are known for last min trades and signings. I can also see a last min trade since we will have a lot of picks in next years draft.

    Re: Any interest in Shawne Merriman?

    I guess it all depends. If he is finally healthy then it may not be a bad thing to see what he has left in him. Anybody think we could bring an OLB in? Is the pass rush that concerning?

    Ozzies masterful at building the back end of the roster and upgrading after others have been cut.
    IMO, that's the only way the ravens give him a sniff.
    But at this point I'd have to question if Merriman would help that much on Defense compared to a younger, healthy kid, that can also play STs.

    Andre Carter had quad surgery during the offseason and is working his way back, he may be picking his spots far as when to make himself available to workout for teams. Just because a player doesn't sign earlier in the offseason doesn't eliminate interest, it means they have their own physical and personal reasons for not making themselves available. It took a while for Braylon Edwards to make himself available since he was recovering from knee surgery, when he became healthy the Seahawks brought him in for a workout and signed him. People need to stop getting caught up in the name Shawne Merriman and focus on the fact that he is not Lights Out anymore. Some people also need to stop focusing on the UMD connection factor, I'm a UMD alum and I've accepted the fact that he may be finished. I'm choosing to think with my head on this one instead of my heart, my heart says to sign him because it would be a feel good move, that would be the wrong choice. I know the Ravens need pass rush depth but I'm begging you guys to think of someone else who can physically help the Ravens not just a name guy. I mentioned Carter because he was good last year, Merriman wasn't.

    My mistake GOTA for assuming you wanted the Ravens to pursue him, I didn't want him either. It was tempting because you (general term) focus on the name but in reality he's not the same player anymore. If the Ravens are going to sign someone it should be a player who can still get the job done not a guy who isn't close to being the player he used to be. By the way GOTA it's good talking to you again, I know I haven't been on here as often as I used to be.

    IMO the risk is giving a guy like this (from PFT : "Merriman has had a grand total of just five sacks in the last four seasons, and has played in just 23 games since the start of the 2008 season.") snaps in place of some of our young players. He seems done to me, why take away time from Kindle, McClellan, or McPhee for this oft injured player who has seen his better days 5 years ago... Bc

    I talked to both of them, Caplan told me his opinion, Wilson told me what he heard.
