Falcons Free Agency 2012: Marcus McNeill Not Visiting Atlanta, According To Report

Update: Conflicting report!

Now that the Atlanta Falcons have re-signed John Abraham, apparently solving their pass rusher dilemma the old-fashioned way (and hopefully without breaking the bank), it looks like attention turns to the other side of the ball. Former San Diego Chargers offensive tackle Marcus McNeill will visit next week:

McNeill was released by the Bolts earlier in the week. A former two-time Pro Bowler, he fits the mold of players the Falcons have brought on so far this year. Both Lofa Tatupu and Vince Manuwai are veterans who may need a change of scenery. McNeill had a contract holdout with San Diego in 2011. Hailing from Chicago, he played his college ball at Auburn, where he was a two-time All-American.

The Birds need a solid answer at left tackle, where Sam Baker's on his last chance and nobody else on the roster looks like a true franchise.
