LaDainian Tomlinson Released by the San Diego Chargers

According to ESPN, LaDainian Tomlinson has been released by the Chargers. The Chargers and LT "restructured" his contract last season, and he was going to get a $2 million bonus and $3 million in base salary in the deal coming off his least productive season as a pro. We've all gone over this decision ad nauseum and we knew it was coming and this just makes it official.

As far as the AFC West goes, I don't really see LT being a fit on any of the other AFC West teams. The Raiders are stacked at RB, the Chiefs have a young super-star in the making in Jamaal Charles, and the Broncos also have a bunch of young RBs and don't seem to have any desire for an old veteran. 

Thanks for everything LT, you were a tremendously tremendous player. I hope you come coach at San Diego State someday.
