Marcus McNeill just got some leverage. Veteran left tackle Tra Thomas has decided to retire. Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune broke the story. The Chargers brought Thomas in as a camp body to fill the place of McNeill, who is holding out.
As things stand right now, the Chargers are counting on Brandon Dombrowski at left tackle. Undrafted rookie Brady Bond is now the top backup tackle. Don’t be surprised if San Diego brings in a free agent.
