    TOMLINSON: I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT I’D LEAVE
    Posted by Josh Alper on March 11, 2009, 5:41 p.m.

    Running back LaDainian Tomlinson held a press conference Wednesday, one day after agreeing to restructure his contract and remain with the Chargers. Tomlinson said that no matter how dire things may have looked, he never thought he’d be leaving the Chargers.

    “I couldn’t see myself putting on another uniform,” Tomlinson said. “That Charger uniform, that No. 21, with the bolt on the side of my head, that’s pretty special.”

    As for the sometimes acrimonious nature of the public discourse about his future, Tomlinson said that nothing that happened over the last two months has caused him to feel any ill will toward the team.

    “It’s a two-way street,” Tomlinson said. “This is the part you don’t like, the business part of it. Obviously A.J. [Smith, the Chargers’ general manager] has been criticized, along with myself, about the things we’ve went though. That’s part of the business. I don’t hold any hard feelings toward anyone.”

    He also addressed the 2010 roster bonus that was written into his deal, a bonus which will force the Chargers to make an early decision about whether or not he’ll remain with the team past the 2009 season. Tomlinson acknowledged his need to prove he could still be a healthy and productive back after turning 30 in June.

    “For me, it’s good because I get to prove what I’m worth again. I get to prove to people. Like I said, that’s the way it’s always been for me. I’ve always enjoyed doing that. I get to do it once again.”

    Tomlinson said he’s fully recovered from the groin injury that forced him to miss the AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Steelers.

    The same time next year we will have to hear from all of the AJ haters again. At least it will be another distraction to take our minds off of there not being any football until the draft.
