Things fall apart…

The Chargers running game which was already among the worst in the NFL last season could potentially be non existent with release of LT and the possible departure of Darren Sproles

Darren Sproles was offered a one-year deal as a franchise player in 2009, but with that contract ending, the Chargers would need to pony up nearly $7.3 million — a 10 percent raise — this year to keep him as a restricted free agent, according to a published report.

However, the Chargers are only pursuing a multi-year contract for the diminutive kick returner/running back, who made $6.6 million for the 2009 season. If not given a tender offer, Sproles would become a free agent, reported the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Because he would shed his franchise tag, Sproles can go out on the market as a free agent, the paper reported

On Monday, the Chargers released star running back LaDainian Tomlinson. The Chargers posted the news just after noon on their Web site, stating, “Running back LaDainian Tomlinson, the Chargers all-time leading rusher, was released today after nine remarkable seasons in San Diego.”
