LT has been very vocal of the fact that he just wants to win a ring. Doesn't sound like it's about money or playing time or records.

Think of LT being to our backfield what Sharper is to our secondary and Brees is to our WR's and OL.

I'm not ready to say go after him, but I'm intrigued.
i have no problem bringing in a guy like LT who would be a leader on and off the field

the problem is paying him starter money which would put our team in a hole as far as going after other guys.

i understand we cant really go after free agents this year but there are rules that allow us to target certain free agents should we lose key players on our roster. I think time would be better spent if we were looking for other positions to fill obvious voids in our team

LT doesnt present or offer something that we really dont already have

Re: Tomlinsonís time in San Diego ends

do we really want him though? if we lose bell, there's going to be some fresher legs out there that won't require 3 to 3.5 mil a year. hamilton is coming into his own. there will be countless free agent ( cheap) rookies that can back up hamilton. i'm just saying our eyes can't be bigger than our wallets.

Re: Tomlinsonís time in San Diego ends

several people are not considering LT for the hall of fame because of his inability to do well in the playoffs

many people dont consider 6 good years to be enough for the hall of fame

i like LT and i wouldnt be surprised at all to see him next door one day....but i cant help but agree with the people that look at his career and say that he was good for a portion of it but not consistant enough to be in there
