    Would You Trade Ladainian Tomlinson?

    There are rumors going around he will get shopped.. Of course they are rumors and I think there is no chance he goes

    But if you ran the Chargers and saw Darren Sproles emerge.. Would YOU trade him?

    I think there is not a chance in hell I would.. He is the face of that franchise and in his "down year" this year still had 1100 yards and 12 TDs

    No team would give the value it would take to get him IMO

    He is a great player and great leader.. Personally I would roll with the one two punch

    Thoughts?

    Re: Would You Trade Ladainian Tomlinson?

    It depends.

    What is the prognosis for recovery on his torn groin tendon or whatever it was?
    Does he still want to play there?
    What is his contract situation?



    The idea of Sproles being able to produce at a level LT has over a long period of time is a huge long shot. That performance against the Colts was impressive but not likely to be often duplicated if ever.

    He should recover easily from what i've read.. he almost even played

    He does want to be there still

    And he makes about 8 mill a year I think.. I think he is worth every penny

    Sproles can't block like LT

    Sproles can't catch like LT

    Sproles can't run like LT

    Re: Would You Trade Ladainian Tomlinson?

    If I'm the Chargers front office, I hate to say it, but yes.

    He'll be 30 next season, has a TON of mileage. Has had late seasons semi-severe injuries the past couple seasons which have kept him out of the playoffs.

    Despite these negatives, he's still one of the best to ever play the game and I feel I could get something of serious value for him from a team that's willing to take that "risk."

    Simple answer: Hell no sproles is No LT by any means. However in the situation we are in if LT is CT yes trade and get a QB. If LT is AD Hell no

    I can see how that could be a good move and I don't disagree with anything you said. maybe just for the sake of conversation I will throw out a few reasons to keep him.


    Legacy- Having him remain a Charger and with a strong team that could compete again over the next few years, it's a good thing to have an elite player on the team and if they were to win the SB, he would be a great part of the legacy of this team.

    Leadership- Although I personally think he gets a little whiny(SP?), he is a presence on the offense and I believe he elevates the play of those around him. That can be valuable.

    I think it would be idiotic to roll with Hester and Sproles.. Sproles had 1 good game and people are crowning him

    I don't think he could take it as a full time back yet

    Re: Would You Trade Ladainian Tomlinson?

    I don't buy into that 30+ year crap

    He still had 50 receps and 1100 yards and 12 TDs this year.. And came on strong at the end

    He still has plenty of mileage.. And spliting carries will keep him fresh through out the year

    He blocked 10000 times better then sproles

    He can catch way better then sproles

    And is 100000 times the runner sproles is

    He is the face of the franchise there and a legand

    Shit if the Packers traded Brett when he turned around 30 or so after a "down year" they would be fucked

    You don't trade people like LT
