Tomlinson to Take a Pay Cut to Play in SD in 2009?

A lot of talk about Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson, continues, with the latest rumor being that the team will ask Tomlinson to take a pay cut heading into the 09 season.

Tomlinson is due $6.275 million in 2009, $8 million in 2010 and $9.275 million in 2011. Tim Sullivan of the San Diego Union Tribune says that it would be in L.T.’s best interest to volunteer to take a pay cut for next season.

“He could seize the initiative from A.J. Smith, back the Bolts into a more awkward position than they already occupy, and free up funds to help fill the team’s numerous needs,” Sullivan writes. “He could execute a tactical retreat and emerge as a triumphant symbol of selflessness.”
