Shawne Merriman was a star NFL linebacker. Then, all of a sudden, he wasn’t. Merriman literally went from pro bowl player to completely forgotten in one season. I can’t think of too many other pro athletes who fell off so bad in such a short period of time. He was great when he was with the Chargers, and still young too. He went from the highs of the NFL, to the lows by being cut, then being cut once again by the Buffalo Bills. If you get cut by the Bills, you pretty much know your washed up. Merriman however is now trying to use his athleticism for another purpose. WWE. I actually am not surprised by this news. He was always a very animated type of player who feeds off the crowd and loves to be the center of attention. Wrestling might actually be his true calling. We shall see. I wonder what his wrestling name will be? He has been trying out this week at the WWE performance center.
