Adding 10 pounds of muscle and losing some major body fat. Dude is getting serious. Teams are going to have to scheme against him, then that frees up Foley. I still think Merriman leads in sacks this year!

Update: Merriman has added 10 pounds of muscle while trimming body fat this offseason, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Recommendation: Last year, he arrived in camp a bit out of shape, and it likely contributed to a series of minor injuries throughout the season. But despite the nagging aches and pains, Merriman still put together an impressive rookie campaign with 10 sacks and seven tackles for loss, and he vows that this season will be better. "I don't think I played that well (last season) compared to what I can do." Merriman said. "I'm going to be a lot better this year. It's not even going to be close."
