ESPN did a big article on it and before the draft he mailed an apology letter to all 32 NFL teams explaining the circumstances and how it was a once in a lifetime mistake.

Had me convinced

Until now

Dude's a cheater. What happens when he's 30 and mileage has taken some of the explosiveness away. Back to the pill again? There's a reason this guy was taken behind Demarkus Ware and others. Before the scandal he was a projected top 5 pick. I can't believe he had the gall to appeal the league's decision when he's been a known offender in the past. Know I'm a little late, but decided to post this giving he's set to return.

Shawn Merriman= The New Bill Romanowski

I think your talking about Luis Castillo. The Chargers Defensive end. Because I never heard merriman did that. But I know what you just said is what Castillo did. So I am pretty sure its Castillo.
