Default Tomlinson: 'I'm not coming back' to Chargers next season

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

“I’m not coming back,” said Tomlinson, who added that he believes the Chargers will release him. “… I’ve accepted it.”

Tomlinson is the franchise’s 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, he 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 won’t do that again.

Tomlinson said Thursday that leaving San Diego will bring “mixed emotions.”

“I’ve spent nine years of my life here, pretty much my youth,” he said. “I gave the organization everything I have. I enjoyed the community. But there is a part I won’t miss. The football part is fun. But the business part sucks. I won’t miss that.”

Tomlinson told The Union-Tribune that he might have his agent call the Chargers to speed up what he believes to be his inevitable release.

Tomlinson joined the Chargers in 2001 as a first-round draft pick out of TCU and has made five Pro Bowls in his nine NFL seasons. He ranks eighth on the league’s career rushing yards with 12,490 yards.

A) I like Tomlinson---

2) How long until the "He will look good in Black & Gold for Vet Minimum " posts begin?
(I'll give it less than 48 hours---maybe even less than 24hrs)

This happened last year, he's not as good as he used to be, but he refuses to take a pay cut.
I can see him going to the raiders.

you may have just nailed it.

pats are in a quandry owing k. faulk a grip of money next year. he is much more used up than tomlinson. they can easilly dump faulk and f. taylor and pick up tomlinson for about the same money and instantly upgrade.

plus tomlinson would easilly have a shot to beat maroney for a starting spot.

brady-moss-tomlinson.

yup, Tomlinson for Faulk makes perfect sense. Brady always loves a good receiving back who can take a swing pass for a 1st down.

Parker..............i cant see it.

Don't forget Tim Tebow as a slot-receiver.
