Lights out for Merriman after DE cut by Bills

Posted: Updated:

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - It's lights out for Shawne Merriman in Buffalo after the Bills cut the one-time star pass-rusher.

The move was announced by the team in a one-sentence news release issued late Monday morning as the Bills prepared to return to practice following a two-day break.

Merriman considered this year as the best chance to revive his career after season-ending surgery in November to repair a partially torn right Achilles tendon. It's an injury that had nagged him for much of the previous two seasons.

The seventh-year player was entering his third season in Buffalo after the Bills claimed him off waivers after Merriman was cut by San Diego in November 2010.

At his peak, Merriman was regarded as one of the league's top pass-rushers, and earned the nickname "Lights Out."
