We give linebacker Shawne Merriman credit for showing up right away to the Bills after being claimed off waivers and saying all the right things at his introductory press conference.
Behind the scenes, Merriman was reportedly less excited about his new team.
John Czarnecki of FoxSports.com reports Merriman wasn’t happy about being claimed by the Bills and “definitely won’t be re-signing” in Buffalo.
Merriman is at a stage of his career where he just needs to stay healthy and play well for an extended stretch of games. It’s been a while. Unless that happens, he won’t be in a position to dictate much about his contract and next team.
