Tomlinson: I will not return to the chargers..
So long, San Diego: Tomlinson believes Chargers will release him

Associated Press

LaDainian Tomlinson told The San Diego Union-Tribune on Thursday what most people have speculated for months: He will not be a San Diego Charger next season.

"Iím not coming back," said Tomlinson, who added that he believes the Chargers will release him. "Ö Iíve accepted it."

Tomlinson is the franchiseís all-time leading rusher, but he just finished the least productive season of his nine-year NFL career (730 yards on 223 carries). Last offseason, the 2006 NFL MVP agreed to restructure the final three years of his contract and take a pay cut, but he told a San Diego radio station Monday that he wonít do that again.

Tomlinson has two years remaining on his contract, and he is due a $2 million roster bonus March 5. He would be paid $5 million in total salary in 2010.

Tomlinson's agent, Tom Condon, said Thursday on NFL Network that "it would be sad" to see his client leave the Chargers

Re: Tomlinson: I will not return to the chargers..
He will probably catch-on with somebody...kinda like Jim Taylor caught-on with us at the twilight of his career. He never made much of an impact, and I'm predicting LdT won't make much of one wherever he lands...if he lands at all.

Notice the "d" in LdT. In my mind, there is only 1 LT...
