    The Chargers take a variety of factors into account when building a roster. Nostalgia is not one of them. General manager A.J. Smith tossed cold water Monday on any speculation the team might bring back a pair of Pro Bowlers from yesteryear, saying the Chargers will not pursue LaDainian Tomlinson or Kassim Osgood in free agency “No. We have moved on years ago,â€￾ Smith said. “We wish him the very best in his search for the team he feels is the best fit for him. We are looking at four backs right now but we may slow down that search a little bit. I know (Jets coach) Rex Ryan has said some great things about LT the last couple years. I would think he would bring him back." Has the door opened for Osgood's return? "No," Smith said. "We have moved on and we feel very comfortable with the special teams guys we have now. As always, we have our eyes on some other guys that we may consider that can help us win. Kassim wants to be a receiver and that just is not going to happen with us."
