Chargers LT McNeill still holding out

San Diego restricted free agent left tackle Marcus McNeill has yet to sign his qualifying tender offer, and now if he doesn’t by June 15th, the Chargers are reportedly leaning toward cutting his tender offer back significantly.

Under league rules, the Chargers have the right to reduce McNeill’s tender by 110 percent if he does not sign by June 15th. Due more than $3.1 million his figure would drop to $583K. If he continues to hold out, one wonders if McNeill would demand a trade to another club in need of a left tackle, not that it’s his choice.

Buffalo’s situation at left tackle is anything but set in stone at this point, and McNeill has a familiarity with Bills GM Buddy Nix.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, McNeill is willing to sit out and wait as he’s seeking a long term deal. It certainly bears watching as June 15th fast approaches.
