LADAINIAN HAS CHARGED OUT WITH SAN DIEGO....BYE BYE!!!


If you ask me, playing football is definitely one hard way to earn a paycheck. Your body goes through more wear & tear than a little bit, but, I guess for what you earn, most would say its well worth it. On top of the love for the game itself, most athletes wouldn't have it any other way. However, with those injuries & the age factor, your tenure on a team is short lived.


As of yesterday, LaDaInian Tomlinson, was released by the San Diego Chargers. LT back in his healthier days was a force to be reckoned with. Any & all defenses can attest to that. Though released, LT has a few more years in him & I'm sure any team would love to have him.

The move had been expected for some time. And Tomlinson, one of the most beloved athletes in San Diego sports history, officially received the word during a meeting with Chargers president Dean Spanos.
"I told him that in the 26 years that I've been in this business, it was probably the hardest thing I've had to do," Spanos told The Associated Press. "I'm not close to a lot of the players, but there's a handful that I've been close with, and he's probably the closest. It was really difficult to tell him. But out of respect, I wanted to tell him earlier rather than later."

Spanos said Tomlinson "was very, very gracious and very respectful" during their meeting.

"He had his typical smile," Spanos said. "He was just as good as could be, as respectful as could be. Just really, like he is, first class."

Tomlinson, who turned 30 last summer, was injured early in the 2009 season and finished with 730 yards on 223 carries for an average of 3.3 yards per attempt, all career lows. He was due a $2 million bonus in early March, which all but guaranteed he would be cut loose by the Chargers, even though he still had two years left on a contract that he reluctantly reworked last offseason.

"It was a longtime coming, but I knew it was coming," Tomlinson said in a telephone interview with SI.com. "Now that it's official, I can kind of look to the next step in my career and playing football for someone else."

He'll assume a backup position somewhere. Hell Daniel Snyder is known for throwing it in the bag when it comes to players, I wouldn't be surprised if the Skins pick him up.

He isn't what he use to be but hell find a job with another team...with a lesser role. I hope he is prepared for that and doesn't start b******* about wanting to be the starter or nothing. At this point he gotta take what he can get and play as hard as he can in hopes that he role will some how be increased.
