Packers Notes: Merriman Is Available, Daniels Is Released, and Heckendorf is a Seahawk

 - Do you think that one of the teams that may have tried to trade for Chargers LB Shawne Merriman on draft day was the Green Bay Packers? I actually doubt it because the Chargers seemed determined to acquire a 1st round pick for him, and I don't believe GM Ted Thompson would have offered that much. He's apparently still available. Despite the missed 2008 season the fans in San Diego still like the guy. What do you think? I'm on the fence about it. Here's his 2009 stats:

Player GS Tackles Sacks INTs PD
Merriman 14 36 4 0 0

 - According to the Press-Gazette, OL Stanley Daniels was released. He spent 2009 going on-and-off the practice squad, and as far as I could tell he was just a big, strong guy. The writing was on the wall that he'd have no chance at making the active roster when they drafted two offensive lineman. It didn't seem likely he'd spend another season on the practice squad (even if he was eligible for it). 

 - I got my hopes up when the Lions released WR Kole Heckendorf that maybe that the the pride of Mosinee would get another shot with the Packers. But former Packer executive John Schneider, now with the Seahawksclaimed Heckendorf off waivers.
