Fan Favorite LT to Stay with the Chargers

Chargers fans can breath a sigh of relief today now  that running back LaDainian Tomlinson has agreed to a new contract that will  keep the fan favorite in San Diego for at least three more years.

The team announced the decision late Tuesday, putting an end to months  of speculation about whether the five-time Pro Bowler and former National  Football League Most Valuable Player would remain in the blue and gold uniform.

There were questions as to whether he would remain because he was marred  by injuries last year.

Terms of the deal were not immediately released but a source told The  North County Times that Tomlinson will earn $6.725 million. His base salary in  2010 will be lower to give the Chargers salary cap space, but he will recoup  the reduction through a signing bonus, the Times reported.
