The Chargers got a little better, and a lot bigger on Saturday.

Massive Pro Bowl left tackle Marcus McNeill signed his one-year tender offer.

“We’re all very happy that Marcus has decided to sign his tender and go back to work,” said General Manager A.J. Smith. “He has missed some time on the job, but we will be patient, get him up to speed and Coach will decide how quickly he gets on the field.”

McNeill won't be eligible to play until October 17 in St. Louis, but can practice immediately.

When he returns, the most likely scenario is McNeill starting at left tackle, Brandyn Dombrowski moving to right tackle and Jeromey Clary moving into a reserve role.

Marcus sacrificed more than $2 million by waiting until now to sign.  He has said he really wanted to be on the field playing football. This proves he really meant it. McNeill and the Chargers should resume their dialogue about a long-term contract soon.
