Bills DE Shawne Merriman’s progress continues to be encouraging as the team’s OTAs are just two weeks away. Appearing on XX 1090 Sports radio in San Diego late last week, Merriman provided an update on just how far he’s come off achilles surgery.

“I was just talking with coach about this, it’s probably the best I have felt in three years,” Merriman said. “The first time I got the chance to have full surgery on my Achilles and have a real off-season. I am looking for a big year.”

Merriman also explained how difficult the last three years have been not being able to perform like he knows he’s capable of playing.

“It’s been rough man. It was a rough process just going out there on the field and not knowing if I was going to be 100% or whether I am going to be able to play next week, practice next week,” he said. “I dealt with that my last year in San Diego and my first full year when I got out here and that’s not the case or the scenario this year. I’ve been here every day for the past 3 or 4 weeks doing everything the team has been doing with the off-season workouts. It’s been good.”

Merriman was out on the west coast this past weekend attending funeral services for NFL 12-time Pro Bowl LB Junior Seau.
