Cards Reportedly Have No Interest in Shawne Merriman

Initially, Merriman in a Cardinals' uniform is a tempting thought, especially considering Arizona's lack of a consistent pass rush, but this isn't the elite pass rusher of old

It’s reported that the Cardinals have no interest in Shawne Merriman, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic and Rotoworld.com.  The Chargers placed Merriman on IR and announced that they plan to release him if or when he becomes healthy.

Although the Cardinals have not officially stated that they have no interest in Merriman, at least Somers believes that the Cardinals don’t see the outside linebacker as a good fit.  Merriman, who was once an elite pass rusher, has missed a huge amount of playing time over the past three seasons.  Arizona already has a pair of 33-year old outside linebackers in Porter and Haggans that are struggling to make plays so perhaps another aging, injury prone linebacker isn’t the right move to make for the Cards.  Also, he probably wouldn’t come cheap, which the Bidwills would not like.
