Merriman Tweets That He's Signed Tender
Shawne Merriman tweeted that he's signed his contract tender with the Chargers and the team confirmed it.
"Just signed my tender and glad to be back with my teammates thanks to everyone #chargers," the tweet read.
Merriman had been staying away from training camp because he apparently wanted assurances he won't be traded this season.
The team still has two high-profile holdouts. Left tackle Marcus McNeill and Pro Bowl wide receiver Vincent Jackson have refused to sign their tenders because they want long-term deals.
