Shawne Merriman's career with the San Diego Chargers is over. The Chargers have placed the linebacker on injured reserve, which would usually end the players season. However the Chargers placed a "minor injury designation" on Merriman. 

The minor injury designation is placed on a player who has an injury that will last less then six weeks. The catch is, when Merriman becomes healthy, the Chargers will need to release him. 

Merriman will not become a free agent though. He will go on to waivers, which means he doesn't have a choice where he goes. Each team will have a chance to claim him off of waivers, with the teams at the bottom getting first crack. 

Here are five teams likely to put in claims for former All-Pro linebacker.
