Chargers Release LaDainian Tomlinson

New, comments

According to ESPN's John Clayton, the San Diego Chargers have released running back LaDainian Tomlinson. Tomlinson, who has amassed 12,490 yards, 153 TDs and 530 receptions in his nine year NFL career. Tomlinson is now a free agent and will be able to sign with any team he desires that contacts him.

Something tells me he won't be unemployed for long, as there are a bunch of teams that could benefit from his productivity, regardless of the drop off from his better years, which are obviously behind him.
