Charger for life. I'm sure his intent is to retire once his contract runs out in 2011.

He may not be the best in the league anymore, trading him would be stupid. He can still be productive. In fact, never count out a RB who has shown the ability to keep in top notch physical condition. A lot of people counted out Curtis Martin who led the league in rushing at the age of 31, and even Emmitt Smith had a 900 yard, 9 touchdown season for the Cardinals at age 35.

Ye of little faith...

Before the injury he was actually looking very much like the old LT we've come to know, I think this is all an overreaction. He may not be able to carry the complete load anymore, but he's in great physical condition as Shiver noted above, which is essential at that age and he's probably still in the best situation possible in SD.

I'm not seeing it at all. Sure, some players who are very attached to a franchise have moved in the past, but I can't see them doing it while he still has some gas left (look at the final game against the Broncos where he finally got healthy, he showed a lot of the LT we know him to be) and is still the face of the franchise. However, I think that they do need to make sure that Sproles returns for them.

We'll see what transpires in the off-season, but I can guarantee you that if LT gets traded there's going to be riots in the streets and I might join in.
Cosign, what a joke this thread is.

Sproles will leave if someone offers and he has a guaranteed spot for the starting job.

I dont think the Chargers trade him because they have a fan base that would riot if they did, even though I agree he is on the decline. However i will play along.

Three teams jumped out at me that could use him.

Den- IF SD trades him it would not be inside the division so this would never happen.

ARZ- Edge is all but gone even if ARZ wins it all and Hightower stinks. Lets say ARZ doesnt win the super bowl and they know that they will have one more look with Warner dont they offer their 1st to get LT? Wouldnt SD have to consider this?

PHI-Similar to Arz, lets say they dont win it all, could they one of their 1sts for LT who would help solve their short yardage issues and allow Westbrook more time in the slot.

Again doubt it happens but those are 3 teams that it could make sense for.

I was asking fans of teams who need a RB what they would pay for LT.
Apparently that's too hard for some people to grasp. Especially the grapes.

I like how you call me a "younger fan", and then list Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice, and Reggie White when were talking about players who were "traded" from their original team...Have you ever heard of Free Agency? If your going to use examples then try using ones that make sense with what your asking, and Brett Favre was traded before playing, again nowhere close to the situation to LT.


Secondly, I understand that teams are not obligated to stick with a player because of his past, that's what you assumed from my post...I do not feel that the Chargers will trade LT though, especially not now, when you consider what they would get back in a trade, and what he's worth to that organization.


Posing the question of whether or not he will be traded, no it's not happening right now, and every player has a different situation so bringing up older players does nothing for your argument.

LT isnt going anywhere. Talk about knee jerk reaction. He was injured and his O-line didnt help his cause. He played through it and it bit him in his ass come playoff time.

What's knee-jerk about it?
As I said, in my keeper league, I traded him on our draft day.
The writing was on the wall.
Guess who I drafted instead, and in my other league?
Michael Turner.

LT's situation is so similar to Shaun Alexander it's uncanny.
Ask Seahawk Nation if when Alexander had the 27-TD season and was MVP, if they though he was a Seahawk for life, and they'd say the same thing back then as I read here about LT.

I traded him last year.
So should San Diego have.

So just because u traded LT then we should? Do u know how stupid that sounds?

Shaun Alexanders similar to whats happening to LT? Shaun Alexander went from a 27 TD season to 7 TDs and not even putting up 900 yds. Then the season after LTs 28 TD season he ran for 1400 yds and 15 TDs and this season even with the injury hes been struggling with and his Oline not performing and him not having a real fullback the whole year he still ran for 1100 yds and 11 TDs. I dont see whats so similar to Alexanders situation, what hes not putting up elite numbers we have to panic?

First of all I dont think he goes anywhere but my problem is that's two years in a row he's got hurt at crunch times in the season. First it was his knee(I think) last year, then his toe and now his groin. Its just an unfortunate fact that RBs get hurt more often and very often earlier than any other position. The best move for SD is resign Sproles and start giving him more of the snaps to take the pressure off LT because when healthy he is still elite

This. Chargers should keep him and then use him sparingly until the play offs. This season was a bit rough and they needed all the help they could get to make the play offs, so it's understandable that LT was getting the majority of the load. However, next season, that needs to change imo.

He's getting old people. He's breaking down. Do you blinders have any idea the type of punishment this guy has absorbed for 10+ years counting college?

He was durable, but as he's getting older, it's not the case any longer, as pointed out above.
-As you all have noticed the past 2 seasons the Chargers have exited the playoffs with him nursing various ailments. He couldn't answer the bell.

It is what it is brah. Like it or not.

Exactly, he's not the running back that he was in the past but that doesn't mean that he's worthless, he's still a good/great RB when healthy.

The bottom line is he didn't play hard in the middle of the season until the team plummetted to 4-8. That's when he gave the speech about playing for pride (talking about himself in many ways). He's still a top 5 running back in the NFL when he is finishing runs and is healthy enough to make his cuts. I believe that he still has what it takes to get it done. I don't think AJ Smith is going to re-sign Sproles, unless Sproles takes less money. LT's still got the open field moves and speed so I feel he has two good years left, provided he stays healthy.

Anyway, it's too late for that but I think they should trade LT this off-season, and use a 2nd or 3rd round pick on a new RB. Guys like Forte and Slaton, etc. can be found after the 1st round. Perhaps a gem falls to them in round 1, who knows.

But my questions to you guys are:

A) What team would be in the market for LaDanian Tomlinson
B) What would LT fetch in trade value?


The normal suckers for robberie trades are Dallas and Oakland, Minny perhaps, but they're set at that position.
It wont happen. Its like saying the Patriots are going to trade Tom Brady because he had a "down" year as well. LT was injured like Brady was. You cant compare a 41 year old Favre with a 29 year old LT.
