San Diego Chargers Notes, Quotes 2009-03-30
--RB LaDainian Tomlinson said he is eager to show he's still got something left in the tank after two straight seasons which were derailed by injuries. For me, it's good because I get to prove what I'm worth again," Tomlinson said. "I get to prove to people, and that's the way it's always been for me. I've always enjoyed doing that. I get to do it once again."


--RT Jeromey Clary received a big-time performance bonus for the second straight year. He more than doubled his 2008 salary with a $405,859 bonus from the NFL's "performance-based pay" system, which rewards players through a complex evaluation based upon playing time and compensation. Clary's 2008 bonus was the highest awarded by the NFL. He made roughly $376,000 in base salary last season, when he started every game as the Chargers' right tackle. He made a $253,015 bonus for 2007, a season when he made $285,000 after starting the final six games in that campaign.

--WR Kassim Osgood, a two-time AFC Pro Bowl special teams player, is being shopped around. Osgood is eager to see more action as a receiver - he had zero catches last year - and has asked to be traded.

--The veterans will report to the offseason workouts on Monday.

--The Chargers were awarded two fourth-round compensatory picks (Nos. 133 and 134) after losing RB Michael Turner and CB Drayton Florence to free agency last year.

--Coach Norv Turner said the AFC West landscape is changing with new coaches in Denver and Kansas City. "The division is going to be different. It's going to be important for us to get a handle on (it) quickly."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I think I will continue to be an explosive player. I'll be back to being full strength and to being the L.T. that you guys are used to seeing." - RB LaDainian Tomlinson on the type of season he expects from himself in 2009.
