SOURCE: MIAMI HERALD ||Insight: Merling had been taking the majority of first-team reps at right defensive end during spring practices, but is facing a felony battery charge after striking his pregnant girlfriend, so a suspension was inevitable. First-rounder Jared Odrick is expected to take his place. The team already lost Jason Ferguson, who announced his retirement last week. |
