Rumors continue to float around the league about the movement of some big name players, and one big name that could easily be on the move soon is Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson. Reports today from the National Football Post state that one team has a close eye on the situation with L.T., and they would have interest if he’s available.
That team – the Saints.
Even with a roster with players that can run the ball like Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas, the Saints are going to take a look at Tomlinson, a player that could come cheap after his worst season stat wise in San Diego.
The Chargers have already put the franchise tag on fellow running back Darren Sproles, and with tension still between GM A.J. Smith and Tomlinson, it might be time for the two to part ways, and for the Chargers to get a pick or two for L.T.
Tomlinson has been with the Chargers for the past eight years, and last season he rushed for 1,110 yards and racked up 12 total touchdowns in 2008. Last season was the lowest yardage output of his career.
