    It was announced on local news that LT is making his official good-bye to Charger fans and the press here in San Diego. The announcement will air at 1:30 PM, and I am trying to find out which stations will carry the feed live.

    I am sure it will be on NFL Net, ESPN, ESPN News and the local chargers station in SD.

    CBS will have a live feed online I believe so I assume they will do the same with TV.

    1090 and likely 1360 will be broadcasting live on the radio and online.

    Listening to it on 1090 right now. LT sounds happy to be moving on. Said his number went down after Marty left (kind of sounds like he does not like Norv's system). Said he still has more left. Hinted that the Saints are a team he is interested in...

    Says he wouldn't mind being a #2 back but had a problem with getting less carries with Norv?

    Also said the team doesn't have to be a contender now, could be an up and coming team.

    Obviously I'm sure he wouldn't mind reuniting with Brees and Brees would love to have him there. The question is do the Saints want or need him.

    i just still feel heartbroken about this, for as long as i have loved the Chargers, i have loved LT, all through my youth LT has been the heart and soul of this team.

    I'd love nothing more than for us to re-sign him, i know it'd take a miracle, but he belongs here in S.D., you could tell from the tears in his speech he belongs here, he should've retired as a Bolt.

    He'll retire as a Bolt (as far as signing a 1 day contract type of deal), but this was probably the best thing for both sides. The Chargers are moving away from the downhill running team they were for most of LT's career, so LT isn't going to be used properly, and LT still believes he has plenty in the tank. Maybe he comes back for his final season to break the TD record or something, that would be pretty cool.

    NFL Live showed about 3-4 minutes of it as he was crying before he started to take questions, then ended the show.

    If anyone has the full press conference, please post it for those of us who missed it in it's entirety.
