LaDainian Tomlinson has been released by the San Diego Chargers, ending a nine-year run in which he became one of the N.F.L.’s best running backs. Finances were partly responsible for the decision to cut Tomlinson. The Charges would’ve owed him a $2 million bonus had he remained on the roster into March, and the team decided the money could be better spent elsewhere. He had 730 yards on 223 carries for an average of 3.3 yards a carry, all career lows.
Tomlinson now finds himself on the open market, in a year when, barring some unforeseen series of events, teams will be operating without a salary cap, and therefore might be willing to spend some money on depth.
Who is going to be the lucky team that gets LD and will they spend the bog bucks to do so?
New England will pick him up for much less than he wants. They are famous for attracting players near the end of their careers with visions of Super Bowl rings.
He has had a great career. The injuries have caught up with him and the heavy workload put on him in his early years. Someone will pick him up, but look for him to be added depth type of player. He will not get the money he is used to though.
LOL it all comes back to Texas! Yeah baby. .
and to think I was crossing my fingers he would come to New York ;(
Actually I am hearing the Vikings are thinking of grabbing him.
Antonio Gates is already missing him . .
