Tomlinson back in San Diego?

While he is considering retirement, former San Diego star running back LaDainian Tomlinson said in a radio interview he’d consider going back to San Diego along with playing for every other team in the NFL.

That’s great and all. But I don’t see San Diego offering him a contract to further his playing career. The Chargers cut Tomlinson, who spent the past two seasons with the Jets. There has been some acrimony since his departure from San Diego.

In other AFC West news:

Former Kansas City coach Todd Haley reportedly may return to the Arizona Cardinals staff. He was the Cardinals’ offensive coordinator before he was hired as Chiefs coach in 2009. He was fired by the Chiefs last month.

The NFL has fined San Diego linebacker Antwan Barnes $25,000 for bumping a referee Sunday in the Chargers’ 38-26 win at Oakland.

Barnes was ejected from the game after he made contact with the official. A league spokesman said Friday that the specific reason for the fine was unnecessary physical contact with an official.
