    Shawne Merriman!!

    There have been unconfirmed rumors floating around that Chargers GM is looking to unload Shawn Merriman for a 2nd round pick. Pats have three of them for the next draft. How about a trade here? Would we have enough cap space if BB decides to go for it?

    2nd round pick might be too high, especially for a Merriman who's had off-the-field problems and is recovering from knee surgery.  There's a reason they're shopping him.  I'd take another Darius Butler or Sebastian Vollmer over him any day of the week, and the more picks, the more chances that a few of them pan out (Black Swans)

    But if it's a 3rd or 4th rounder, then maybe...

    Re: Shawne Merriman!!

    You think so?
    He has 40 sacks in 3 yrs, highest among any players. His off field issues include a suspension for substance abuse, which was also imposed on Rodney Harrison, so that could be acceptible. The Tila Tequila thingy was all media hype as she withdrew her complaint when she realized that her laywer has no case. I think we can afford to use one 2nd rd pick for him. Our current 2nd round pick Brace isnt doing much anyways and we have wasted a few 2nd rounders (chad johnson). I think its worth the risk. Heck even Randy Moss had off field issues! We gave him a chance!If the trade works out, and even if he get 7-8 sacks this year, I think it is successful as our leading sack speacialist last yr was big Sey with 8.
    Any thoughts?

    Edit you post to say "Chad JACKSON" ... small thing, I knew what you meant, but just for accuracy.

    That's why I said draft picks are Black Swan events.  You don't know if Tom Brady is going to succeed as a 6th rounder, but if you draft 100 guys, at least one is going to be a Pro-Bowler.  Even Matt Millen drafted Calvin Johnson (on his 3rd try) along with Kevin Jones.  With better personnel evaluation, you can improve your chances.

    I think Darius Butler will be a shutdown corner someday.  I think Sebastian Vollmer will be a starting tackle someday.  And for all the naysayers with such high expecatations, Ron Brace is still a rookie.  If one works out, it was worth it.  If two work out, all the better.

    By my count, about 1 in 3 Pats picks pan out.  I'd rather see them take their chances on 3 2nd-round talents than trade one for a player who might not get you results.  He's coming back from a similar injury to Brady.  He might not come back this year (in terms of productivity)... and then the 2nd rounder really wouldn't be worth it.  I'd rather see them trade a 2nd rounder for Terrell Owens or Lee Evans.  I think the pass rush can come around without Merriman.

    The Pats need to save cap space for the offensive side of the ball, the defense would be fine if the Pats had a consistent running game and a solid #3 WR.  Without that, nobody added to this defense will make a difference.

    A second rd pick is a great offer.many teams will go after merriman if he is available.as for cap space im sure the pats would work it out.as for areas of the team needing fixing.all areas need it.

    I would take a chance if he leaves all the "lights out dance" at the door and be a model patriot
