    Chargers site implies McNeill has signed RFA tender, but he hasn't

    Posted by Mike Florio on April 7, 2010 7:03 PM ET

    A reader points out that the Chargers' official roster contains a separate section for restricted free agents, beneath the players who are under contract.

    The list of restricted free agents includes the likes of linebacker Shawne Merriman and receiver Vincent Jackson. But left tackle Marcus McNeill appears in the normal roster, which implies that he has signed his restricted free agency tender.

    We're told that McNeill has not yet signed his tender, and that he is not under contract.

    There's another flaw on the roster page; running back Darren Sproles has not been moved from the list of restricted free agents to the full roster, even though he has signed his tender offer.

    It's not a huge issue, but fans are getting confused by the info on the web site. So we figured we should clear it up. Do we get a medal?

    UPDATE: The Chargers have advised us that the error has been fixed. And they thanked us. No word on the medal.

    And here's a copy of that memo:

    Dear Bolt Talk:

    We're always very appreciative when astute fans point out errors on our web site, making us feel pretty stupid and incompetant. We've fired a couple of interns (not that they were responsible for the mistakes, but hey...) and given a couple of other employees written warnings.

    Again, thanks for your valued input, which allows us to dump salaries, add to California's unemployment rate, and conduct a reign of terror with our staff.

    Signed,

    Your Friends in the Chargers' Organization
