    Shawn Merriman suspended.

    Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman has been notified he will be suspended for four games for violating the NFL's steroids policy, league and team sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

    Merriman's positive test was "definitely for steroids … not one of those supplement deals" said a source with knowledge of Merriman's suspension.

    Merriman's suspension originally was to be announced last Tuesday when two other players -- the Falcons' Mark Lehr and the Lions' Shaun Rogers -- were suspended for violating the policy. But Merriman reserved the right to appeal his suspension, so it was not announced.

    Neither the Chargers, nor Merriman, could be reached for comment Sunday night.

    Earlier Sunday the Chargers lost to the Chiefs 30-27 in Kansas City.

    Every sport is cracking down on this stuff, I can't believe these players continue to try and get away with it. I can't imagine the pressure they are under every week so maybe thats part of it I dont know.

    Thats exactly it Top Gun. These players are under so much pressure to perform that they look to get an edge. I really don't care if players use roids. If they want to kill themselves and ruin their health. Its their choice.

    What a cheater! They should start penalizing teams by taking away victories they may have had during the time the juiced player was on the field. There has been a lot of people getting caught this year which means teams probably aren't talking to their players about not using steroids. If the league started making the teams more responsible and possably the teams doing their own testing as well as the league testing then the use might come down more, IMO.

    I dont think it is a case of being the teams fault as they have been tested since they were playing in college.
