The Chargers face Problems
The San Diego Chargers now face the very reality that they start the 2010 season without two of their Pro Bowl players. It was reported earlier this week that WR Vincent Jackson and LT Marcus McNeill were sent letters from the Chargers organization informing them if they did not sign their tender by the June 15th deadline, that they would face a even further reduced salary for the 2010 season.
Now ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that both players do not plan on reporting for training camp and a possible holdout for the 2010 year is a very real possibility. Schefter reports that ESPN’s John Clayton was told that the Chargers plan on signing veteran OT Tra Thomas in order to prepare for a protracted holdout by McNeill.
An extended holdout by Jackson however would be a significant blow to the Chargers offense. Jackson has improved his numbers every year in each of his 5 seasons with San Diego. He’s recorded over 2200 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns in the past two seasons.
