CLEVELandMILIDH Posted March 5, 2009 Report Share Posted March 5, 2009 Cut Lewis and give his 6 million a year to LT, or sign them both that would be a pretty nice backfield Posted by Mike Florio on March 5, 2009, 5:19 p.m. As the Chargers and running back LaDainian Tomlinson continue publicly to express hope that they’ll work out a restructured contract that will pay L.T. something other than $6.725 million in 2009, his mother, Loreane, told XX 1090 in San Diego on Thursday that the situation “doesn’t look promising.” “They almost like handed him crumbs,” Loreane Tomlinson said as to the offer that the Chargers have made. Of the uncertainty as to L.T.’s status, she said, “It’s almost like a slap in the face. . . . Tell us something.” Though she explained that the situation is hard on the family, she said that her son is keeping a positive outlook. “I’ll be playing somewhere,” L.T. told his mother, according to his mother. “I don’t know where, but wherever I go it’ll be OK.” We’d love to know how it came to be that Mrs. Tomlinson ended up doing a radio spot. The hosts weren’t sure how to pronounce her name, so it’s not like she’s a regular on the station. Based on what she said, our guess is that someone in the L.T. camp realized that she would be the best person to get the message into circulation, without giving anyone in the media fodder for claiming that LaDainian is whining about his situation.
