possible solution to OLB woes?

with harrison and worilds still on PUP, i was scouring the web to see what options are actually out there. i know 92 will be activated from the PUP prior to the start of the regular season, but i don't think worilds will be. worilds will probably be inactive for the first 6 games, leaving our OLB depth as woodley, carter, harrison and then ... robinson?? the steelers have tried moving some ILBs outside to no avail. johnson had a couple good plays in the first pre-season game and was basically non-existant in the second. an interesting option, at least in my opinion, is shawne merriman. he was stellar before being plagued by injuries. the lions just released him a couple of days ago after realizing he would not move up beyond the 5th de depth chart spot. de is not merriman's natural position and could provife solid depth at olb. he seeems to be healthy and would be at worst a solid backup option with a possibility of rotating in with the starting d once he better learns the scheme. on another not, multiple internet sources seem to believe the "big trade" colt's isray has been talking about is for wallace. i really hope not, but the steelers know what they are doing. if i was the gm, holmes would still be in a black and gold jersey. luckily the hardest descisions i have to make concerning the steelers is where to watch the game.
