10:33 AM ET 07.30 | Linebacker Shawne Merriman retired in March but now he wants back in the NFL. Specifically he wants to play the hybrid role for the Atlanta Falcons and tag team with Osi Umenyiora to go after quarterbacks in the NFC, but that could just be a problem for the locker room, an area where head coach Mike Smith says you need to win first. The Falcons probably won't be reaching out to Merriman to play, keeping the lights off on his career.

Fairly quick repeat thread considering camp is just starting. Even interns need training camp, I guess.

Thanks! Love Dandy Don. Maybe Otis knows better, but I believe he's the only person in the Cowboy's Ring of Honor without a championship ring of his own. Great analyst, but an underrated player.

Not even sure he's asking for $$$... Lights out for buffet?

Never underestimate a training camp spread. Lots of calories and carbs for growing boys.

I was thinking the same thing. His game definitely did have a considerable drop off once he went clean.

Coach... I promise... Every afternoon, when practice is over... I will turn the LIGHTS OUT in the locker room.

Just think of the electricity I can save you...

good luck
