Shawne Merriman has layed in a grand total of five games since the Buffalo Bills snagged him off waivers in 2010.
Now after losing most of his 2011 season to an Achilles injury that required surgery last November, Merriman tells the Bills website that he is finally on track to be healthy and contributing in ways that he has not done since his heyday with the San Diego Chargers.
“Now I get a chance to have a full offseason. I had all kinds of restrictions and limitations with things I couldn’t do last year because of my Achilles,” said Merriman. “Now it’s a different scenario. Now by the time May comes around and runs into June I’ll be at full stride and be able to do everything and work out with my teammates. Starting today and going all the way up to the season it’s a completely different story than I’ve had the past three years.”
