Despite ongoing neck problems (spinal stenosis or narrowing of the spin) McNeill had a stellar college career.
In 2006 he was drafted by the Chargers 50th overall. (second round)
He had a great first couple of years, being voted to the pro bowl in both 2006 and 2007.
In 2010 McNeill got a new contract for 6 years, 48.9 million.
Then came 2011 when everything went South.
After two knee surgeries and a neck injury, McNeill found himself on the IR.
In comes Jared Gaither and the rest is history. McNeill was expendable.
Now on the free agent market, several teams have passed on him, having opted to draft a rookie at the position instead.
I think Marcus still has a lot left to give and if he can stay healthy, Chargers could bring him back in at a reduced rate.
He could provide experienced depth on the offensive line.
God knows we need it.
