3X Pro Bowl/All -Pro NFL DE/LB Shawne Merriman was surprisingly released by the Buffalo Bills today, thereby making him a free agent.http://www.tsn.ca/nfl/story/?id=403466
What are the chances of the Cats signing him to be a starting end or possible mid-tackle? (as Shawne possesses both agile athleticsm adjacent with brute power/strength)
This man was an unstoppable sack leader not long ago, and is still only 28 years of age.
now on to reality, do the Cats have cap room to offer Merriman at least 1+ mil per season?
I didn't think so...
Here's hoping the NHL incurs a lockout (at least until November's end) with CFL ratings increasing exponentially, resulting in an extraordinary unprecedented broadcast agreement to enrich teams' ability to further entice and maintain exceptional talent aptly suited for the Canadian game.
dreams + $ = reality.
