“It’s mixed emotions. I’ve spent nine years of my life here, pretty much my youth. I gave the organization everything I have. I enjoyed the community.But there is a part I won’t miss. The football part is fun. But the business part sucks. I won’t miss that.”
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.
I know this was forthcoming, but I can't say that I am happy to hear it. I'm frustrated, and I was hoping Tomlinson would finish his career here in San Diego with a Super Bowl RIng.
