Marcus McNeill back in fold for Chargers
The San Diego Chargers have drawn as much attention for the players they don’t have with them this season than the players they do have.
One of them appears to be back in the fold. A league source tells us that left tackle Marcus McNeill is at the team’s facility right now and agent David Canter, who does not represent McNeill, reported on his Twitter account that the Chargers have signed the two-time Pro Bowl performer.
That’s a big move for the Chargers, who have cobbled together the offensive line in the absence of McNeill.
Now, it remains to be seen if the organization can mend fences with wide receiver Vincent Jackson, who is not eligible to return until Week 7. The team let a deadline to trade the playmaker pass earlier this week, drawing criticism from Jackson and his agents.
UPDATED: McNeill has signed his one-year tender as a restricted free agent. He will be forced to sit out the next three games but will be eligible to play in Week 6.
