Shawne Merriman — 'I Turned Down Will Smith Concussion Movie' … Here's Why … (VIDEO)

Ex-NFL superstar Shawne Merriman tells TMZ Sports … he was approached to be a part of Will Smith‘s “Concussion” movie but SHOT IT DOWN. 

The former San Diego Chargers linebacker says he’s convinced the movie is “definitely going to give the NFL a black eye” … but says he didn’t feel right jumping aboard the project. 

The movie — set to come out in December — is supposed to blow the lid of an alleged NFL conspiracy to hide the debilitating life-long effects of concussions from players. 

“I turned it down and said ‘No’ … I don’t want to be a part of it because I didn’t know how they were going to make it look.”

Still, Merriman says concussions are a problem among NFL vets — saying, “A lot of people have problems and the NFL should fix it .. period.”
