Chargers Notes: Marcus Mcneil signs his tender

Marcus Mcneil ended his holdout today, signing his one year, restricted free agent tender.  Marcus Mcneil's contract is for a prorated amount of $440,000.  He was placed on the roster-exempt list, so he must sit out the Bolts next three games.  He should make his season debut October 24, against the New England Patriots.

Kevin Says:  The timing on this signing is strange.  One would figure that Mcneil was going to sit out until week ten, come play, get his year of service time, and move on to greener pastures.  Perhaps the Chargers and Mcneil are working to hammer out a long-term deal.  Mcneil has to feel pretty stupid, he could have signed his tender in June, and received $3.1 million.  The dude obviously got horrendous advice from his agents, and it cost him big.  Since the bridge looks to be completely burned on the Vincent Jackson front, its good to see the Chargers get a key player into camp.
