SAN DIEGO – Shawne Merriman has tweeted that he’s signed his contract tender with the San Diego Chargers.
Merriman had been staying away from training camp because he apparently wanted assurances he won’t be traded this season.
The Chargers still aren’t confirming that Merriman has signed, and the player hasn’t returned e-mails seeking confirmation.
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.
