LaDainian Tomlinson released, Thomas Jones next?

LaDainian Tomlinson was released by the San Diego Chargers today. He owns or shares in 28 Chargers records,  won two NFL league rushing titles, set an NFL record for single-season touchdowns and was a league MVP in 2006.  You don't get all those records without racking up a lot of miles, though...7 miles to be exact (12,490 yards), and he turns 31 years old in June.

If you don't know by now, 30 is considered old for an NFL running back.  Although he was pretty fired up for this season, and seemed to have a new determination to come back and have a strong year, his on the field results fell a little short of expectations with only 730 rushing yards on a 3.3 yards per carry average.

Thomas Jones is already 31 and is due a $3,000,000 roster bonus on March 9.  If the Jets don't want to pay that much for a 31 year old, which seems very possible, they will likely release him.
