All signs are pointing to the Chargers and LaDainian Tomlinson parting ways in the offseason. Mainly because of a roster bonus that is due to Tomlinson that the Chargers don’t seem to want to pay.
Tomlinson is due a $2 million roster bonus on March 5, the first day of the new league year. Provided the new league year is not postponed to allow for further collective bargaining negotiations, Tomlinson will likely be released before then, because the Chargers don’t seem inclined to pay his $5 million total salary. Both sides have said since a restructuring of Tomlinson’s contract last March that the deal would not be reworked again.
