QUOTE OF THE DAY
DE Shawne Merriman
On being another year older and feeling like a “young” 28 year old:
“I’m like Benjamin Button. I’m going backwards. I feel very young. Anybody who will get a chance to watch me this year, I’ll move around like I did when I came into the league. Fortunately that’s all I had really is the Achilles over the last three years. Now that we’ve got that taken care of I’m a lot more confident.”
