For those Falcons fans who have been wanting to have McNeill join the Falcons, I’m afraid we have a little bad news. It seems that all the reports of McNeill visiting the Falcons this week was all a sham created by McNeill’s agent to increase interest in his client.
Apparently McNeill has been clamoring for ‘starting’ money. His claims that he is 100% make him believe that he needs the the amount of money a starting caliber Left Tackle would get.
Personally, I think that he ought to take a 1-year small contract to prove himself. If he is the talent that we all think he could be, he would definitely increase the amount of money that he would get as a free-agent in 2013. Eventually the market will force Marcus to reconsider his asking price, and he will sign with someone for significantly less than starting money. I just hope that 1-year trial season is with the Falcons.
