08:00 AM ET 11.23 | The Shawne Merriman era with the Buffalo Bills may not include playing in an actual game, according to Chan Gailey. Gailey was asked whether Merriman would suit up at all this season for the Bills. "I don't know. That's a good question." ... Told he didn't sound confident Merriman could eventually play, Gailey responded: "Well, I'm not. There's got to be something that gives me confidence. Nobody's said, 'OK, you can expect him in two weeks.' Nobody's said that yet."

Merriman is finished as a top-tier player.

He may not suit up with anyone. No 'roids...no good!

He was done as a player in San Diego two years ago. moving to Buffalu is not going to change that.

Truth, plus it's Buffalo, could anyone blame him for not wanting to suit up for them?

The only thing that changes is the weather.

Roids are a helluva drug.

They almost sound like they don't need him.

True. Not even a need to use "allegedly".

Maybe the CFL will expand again. Keep heading north lad.

Time to move on to that reality show career, Merriman.

He can join T.O. and Ocho on their show. I don't think being the next Mr. Wizard is in the cards for him.

Merriman can play...the guy just needs some motivation and to be healthy.

He would be best suited on a team that has a very good pass rusher already, meaning he gets lots and lots of one on one matchups to exploit.

Believe it or not, I think he would be better than Spencer in Dallas on the opposite side to Ware.

Spencer is average at best with flashes of brillance...maybe, just maybe, adding Merriman to that team will allow Dallas to rest both guys, using Spencer on rushing downs, which he is good at and then going with a hybrid line of Ware, Ratliff, Spencer and Merriman on Nickle downs giving lots and lots of speed.

Not if he can get some good roids and a wizzinator to help pass the steroid test.

Or perhaps he can spend the rest of his days beating reality stars.

I guess it's Lights Out for your career Shawne.... (does stupid **** dance that looks like someone trying to start a chainsaw that has no f'n idea what they are doing)

LOSER!

Matthews (LB for Green Bay) will be next one to be hit for using 'roids.
