What does Tomlinson have left and what is his value around the league at this advanced point of his career? My answer to that question is short and simple: very little.

Personally, as a long-time Chargers fan and LaDainian Tomlinson fan, I would've preferred to see Tomlinson walk off into the sunset with bolts on his back.
