From ESPN’s Adam Schefter

“Buffalo has claimed LB Shawne Merriman. He has five days to report to Buffalo; plans to for now. He is not expected to play Sunday vs. Chicago”

I’m not 100% sure about how I feel about this move. It’s one thing if Merriman comes in, plays great and is open to giving the Buffalo Bills first shot in signing him. But it’s another thing if Merriman comes in, helps the Bills win 3-4 games, and runs out of town, leaving the Bills with nothing but a higher draft pick.

Right now it’s a little bit of a head scratcher, but hopefully Buddy Nix (who drafted Merriman while with the Chargers) has something up his sleeve!

We want to know what do our readers thing of think of this move?
