Default LaDainian Tomlinson anyone????

I know its not a realistic possibility but would anyone be opposed if the Steelers were to pick up LT for 3rd Down situation(as a 3rd down back).....I personally wouldn't mind @ all....I know he's 30 years old and has lost a step or two due to injuries...but if he's healthy and only on the field on 3rd downs or when needed....he would probably regain some of his explosiveness back because he wouldn't be taking a beating like he did in S.D.....For some reason I have the New England Cheaters picking him up....I believe that L.T. still has some gas left in his tank! So anyways what do youguys think of this highly unlikely possibility?????

Here we go...a big name is released and someone wants to pick him up. No no no no no no no no no!!! He's older...slower...seems whiney at times...he wants to start and probably decent money too. We do not need someone like that...we have Mendy, Moore and Summers (could be an awesome short yardage/change of pace back)...I'd even take Redman over LT at this point. Yes he WAS a good player and maybe still have some juice left in him...but no way should they even think about wasting money on him.

He stated that he wants to go to a winning organization thats close on winning a championship. This guy is always hurt . If there is a big game , you will see LT on the sidelines.

Agreed everytime its a big game he is either injured or no factor what so ever. Pass
Pass Pass on LT
Oh yeah is he even good enough to have earned the LT title I think from now on i will refer to him as Tomlinson. The real LT was a Giant

Not this little black duck thank you.

Past his prime and past the point of contributing to this squad.

Let him ride off into the sunset on someone else's charitabe contract

Default OK.... Now Could LT Be Eyeing The Steelers ?

Sounds like he might have the Steelers on his 'list'... I don't know which "championship" team would start him... but maybe starting out at 2nd string behind Mendy ???
Article. 2/22/10.
After being released by the Chargers on Thursday, LaDainian Tomlinson reiterated that he will play again in the NFL next season -- and he wants it to be at its highest level.

"The main thing for me now is to try to win a championship," Tomlinson, 30, told SI..com.

"That's my No. 1 goal. That's why I still work hard and train like I do, because I still believe there's a chance of winning that championship. So the next team I go to has to have a chance of winning a title. I can think of a few teams off the top of my head, but that's what my agent is for. I'm sure he's going to do some research, talk to some teams and present some options to me."

The Chargers' parting of ways with Tomlinson was expected, as the running back said in early February that he did not plan on returning to the only team he has played for in the NFL. Tomlinson had said earlier he would not take a pay cut in 2010.

Tomlinson didn't identify teams that he might consider signing with. But he said he wants to hook on with a team that has a QB in place who can help him win a Super Bowl.

"I do know that I would have to go to a team that has a (proven) quarterback," Tomlinson told SI. "A place where you know you have a chance to win because of the quarterback."
