At this point in Joey Bosa’s holdout, there is not really too much good. The Chargers are fed up with Joey Bosa and pulled their contract. The Chargers players are taking shots at Bosa, and now, one of the best Chargers to ever suit up, is telling Joey Bosa to end his hold out. Chargers former RB LaDainian Tomlinson took a jab at the Ohio State rookie.
“Any football player who wants to be great, it doesn’t matter about the money,” Tomlinson told the Mark and Rich Show on XTRA 1360 in San Diego, using generalized words that could be used against anyone who ever holds out, including Tomlinson when he did. “It really doesn’t. Because if you ball out, you’re going to get paid no matter what. That’s the beautiful thing about playing this game and being a player. If you ball out, then you will get paid.”
“You can run the risk of alienating yourself from your teammates and also from the organization,” Tomlinson said. “A lot of people think, ‘Oh, the player could be scarred by this from the organization and not like the organization,’ it can be vice versa. The organization can feel like, ‘This guy will be a problem his whole entire career,’ so that could jeopardize what happens in three or four years when Joey comes up for a contract.”
