Shawne Merriman is a 28-year-old retired NFL player with time on his hands and an itch to compete. So what is Merriman going to do?
Well according to Around The League via his Twitter page, Merriman is going to be a contestant on American Ninja Warrior.
I can't wait to compete on Season 5 of #AmericanNinjaWarrior this summer going to be crazy

Here’s hoping Merriman can survive the rigors of being a ninja better than he did the NFL.
