LaDainian Tomlinson thinks the Chargers will stay in San Diego

One of the greatest Chargers to ever rock the powder blues doesn't believe the team will act on its plan to relocate.

"I think they stay," said Charger-great-turned-analyst LaDainianTomlinson. "I think this is going to come down to the 11th hour, 59th minute. Right at the last minute I think they get a deal done."

That hour could be soon upon us. Reports continue to pile in that Los Angeles is an increasing possibility for at least one NFL team. And the Raiders and Chargers are progressing on a joint stadium deal in the Los Angeles area near Carson, Calif. 

Still, the team's all-time leading rusher thinks ownership will ultimately decide to drop anchor in America's Finest City.

"I don't believe that Dean Spanos, the president of the Chargers, wants to move," Tomlinson said. "I think he likes San Diego. And I think they end up staying."
