According to ESPN's John Clayton, the San Diego Chargers have released arguably the best offensive player in their franchise's history, LaDainian Tomlinson.
After nine seasons, 12,490 rushing yards and 153 total touchdowns, Tomlinson will not test free agency for the first time.
Tomlinson's number have fallen off in the last two seasons, though, as the future Hall of Famer has dealt with a number of injuries. In 2009, Tomlinson managed only 730 rushing yards in 14 games, by far the lowest total of his career.
The Chargers, who let Michael Turner go a couple years ago, will now look to either free agency or the draft to rebuild their backfield around quarterback Philip Rivers. Darren Sproles is still under contract.
