LaDainian Tomlinson's Charger career is over

February 4, 2010 |  5:48 pm

LaDainian Tomlinson has told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he has played his last game as a Charger.

“I’m not coming back,” Tomlinson told The San Diego Union-Tribune on Thursday. “I don’t believe I’ll be back in San Diego. I’ve accepted it.”

“I’ve been praying and meditating,” he said. “After doing that for a couple weeks, I just felt like it was over.”

Tomlinson has two years remaining on his contract, but he is due a $2 million roster bonus March 5 and would be paid $5 million in total salary in 2010. As part of the renegotiated contract he signed last March, he is guaranteed $1 million by the Chargers for next season.

Tomlinson said he doesn’t know when the Chargers will release him. He said his agent might call the club to expedite the process.
