Fantasy owners let their voices be heard about LaDainian Tomlinson’s fantasy value for the 2009 season.
Happy 30th birthday, LaDainian Tomlinson! I’m sending the veteran runner best wishes, but also warning fantasy owners not to expect him to re-establish himself as an elite runner in 2009.
The Chargers expect to have injured LB Shawne Merriman and RB Darren Sproles at offseason workouts this week.
The Chargers are looking to renegotiate the contract for RB LaDainian Tomlinson, but did not reach a deal when the two sides met on Sunday, according to the North County Times.
After the Chargers designated RB/KR Darren Sproles as their franchise player for the 2009 season, general manager A.J. Smith confirmed what had been speculated for months — that the team will look to renegotiate RB LaDainian Tomlinson‘s contract.
NFL Network’s Adam Schefter reports that the San Diego Chargers have placed their franchise tag on RB Darren Sproles. The move almost ensures that Sproles will return to the team next season. It also points to a potential backfield committee with LaDainian Tomlinson, who will be 30 this year and showed signs of wear and tear in what was a disappointing 2008 campaign.
The Chargers took a major step to resolve their running back issues. They designated Darren Sproles as their franchise player, which will limit his free-agent options but guarantee him $6.621 million for the 2009 season.
The Chargers have some needs to address this offseason, but nothing has drawn more speculation and opinion than the future of RBs LaDainian Tomlinson and Darren Sproles. The Tomlinson situation has dominated the headlines in recent weeks, but the Chargers will have to make a decision on Sproles in the very near future.
Chargers running back Darren Sproles has become a valuable commodity after his performances in San Diego’s last two postseasons. And given the recent success of Falcons running Michael Turner, you can expect to find a number of interested teams courting the explosive Sproles.
Let’s think about the questions we had coming into the game and how they would be answered.
NFL Network player correspondent Ty Law is making sure that I put in my blog that he told us Chargers RB Darren Sproles needed to get some screen passes so he could operate in space.
Chargers RB Darren Sproles has at least 10 carries in a game just three times in his NFL career. But in each of those games, Sproles had over 100 rushing yards.
