    Shawne Merriman hospitalized; reportedly overdosed at LA club

    Former San Diego Chargers Pro Bowl linebacker Shawne Merriman was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital Sunday night for what is being loosely described as a "medical emergency."

    Details are scant, but the Los Angeles Times is reporting that Merriman overdosed on some combination of drugs and alcohol.

    Partying seems like the thing to do, when you do not have a job or income, coming in.

    Right, but what are the odds, he will file for bankruptcy?

    anyone who did not see this coming years ago-when he was first caught doing roids- has to be a complete idiot

    yet there were some numbys on this board that wanted him even when he was cut recently

    Why are you pretty sure about that? He certainly should have lots of money in his savings account, but I wouldn't be sure of it. Sports stars have a way of going broke quickly.

    I'm not saying he did or didn't, but the guy has been pretty active on twitter today. He says 'dehydration' which is a convenient excuse, but without knowing anything about drugs, I would imagine that someone who just OD'd isn't going to be that up and about.

    Hope he's alright, but if it's really an OD, what an idiot. From HGH to poppin pills.

    So glad the Cowboys took Demarcus Ware over this guy.

    yeah i think he gained like 30 pounds seemingly overnight after his last Maryland season was over and it was all muscle. It was screaming roids then....of all the crummy picks we've missed on..... D Ware (a potential HoF'er) was sandwiched between WR Mike Williams and LB Shawne Merriman.

    How hard is it to tweet?

    Just because he is tweeting about doing something it doesn't mean he is actually doing something.

    He could also be taking some uppers to keep himself going after an OD. Nikki Sixx ODed one time, went to the hospital, checked out and went home to do more drugs.

    I'm starting to sense that Ware ended up being the better pick.

    Still no, he only gets "garbage time" sacks...whatever that means.
