Shawne Merriman says he's showing up for offseason workouts

Five years after linebacker Shawne Merriman refused to sign an injury waiver that would have allowed him to participate in offseason workouts as a unsigned rookie, Merriman said Tuesday that he would be signing an injury waiver that will allow him to participate in offseason workouts as an unsigned restricted free agent.

Merriman made the announcement via Twitter on Tuesday at approximately 10:00 a.m. P.T.  Roughly six hours later, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune said that Merriman and other unsigned restricted free agents (like receivers Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd and left tackle Marcus McNeill) were not present on Tuesday.

So Merriman either had a change of heart, or he decided to wait another day before going in.

Signing the injury waiver will guarantee that Merriman would receive the amount of his RFA tender offer if he suffers a season-ending injury while participating in offseason workouts.
