Not surprised but definitely a sad day.

LT was the face of the franchise for so long, it would have been nice to see him retire a Charger.

Sad to see the face of our franchise go, but he obviously isn't helping us get to where we want to go.
Thanks for everything and good luck wherever he may end up

Stay classy LT

Always liked LT, even as an Eagles fan. I was always a fan of his and it was great seeing him play for the Chargers. He had so many great accomplishments with this team and it really is a sad day for the Chargers organization and their fans. Best of luck to him where ever he goes.

Dude will always be the player I think of when I see a helmet with a visor.

The San Diego Chargers released running back LaDainian Tomlinson today, according to ESPN's John Clayton, and some might ask the question: Would the Patriots consider Tomlinson as a free-agent option?

From this view, from a pure on-the-field standpoint, it would be a shocker if they did.

The Patriots have Laurence Maroney, Sammy Morris, Fred Taylor and BenJarvus Green-Ellis under contract at the position, and are likely to bring back Kevin Faulk.

When considering the makeup of the group, Morris turns 33 in March, Taylor turned 34 in January, and Faulk turns 34 in June. With this in mind, if the Patriots are going to add a running back to their stable, it figures to be a younger option, someone to develop for the future.

Tomlinson, who turns 31 in June, is at the point in his career where he will be part of a committee wherever he winds up, a short-term fix. That would essentially duplicate what the Patriots already have and potentially stand in the way of grooming a younger back for the future.

And all of that that doesn't factor in off-field considerations, such as Tomlinson's past derogatory remarks about the Patriots.
