Marcus McNeill has reported to the San Diego Chargers, signing his one-year, $630,000 tender, according to sources.
The veteran left tackle will miss the next three games and then will be eligible to play against the St. Louis Rams in Week 6.
The two sides have the next few weeks to try to work out a long-term deal.
McNeill had been holding out in search of a long term deal with the team.
While the Chargers had been in talks to trade fellow holdout Vincent Jackson, it had not entertained offers for McNeill and San Diego had moved forward without him.
In McNeill's place, second-year player Brandyn Dombrowski has protected quarterback Philip Rivers' blindside as the Chargers have opened the season 1-1.
