Let me start by saying I have no idea if there is a chance, so to speak. Please be patient and read the entire article
Most of us have all seen the movie “Dumb and Dumber.” I’m assuming that ALL Raiders fans and, for that matter, most Broncos and Chiefs fans just so happen to live it out in their day to day lives.
There is a scene where actor Jim Carrey asks, the person that he believes to be, his love interest if she thinks there’s a chance that the two of them could “unite” in a mutual-feelings relationship….. She in turn replies, ” One in a million,” while making it plainly clear that the chances are, indeed, far less than even one in a million.
His retort, as hilarious as it classic, “So you’re telling me there’s a chance?!?”
The Chargers and LaDanian have decided to mutually agree that #21 will sign a one day contract and retire a Charger on Monday, June 18th. Although I hoped that this would happen, there were no guarantees that it would. I felt that it had to happen but that has nothing to do with the business of the NFL.
All that being said, my question becomes a more technically and rule based question.
With L.T. signing a one day contract, do the Chargers then place him on the reserve/retired list? Do they then have exclusive signing rights to #21?
If they do, what would happen if we were to have one or, heaven forbid, two running backs go down due to injury?
Would the Bolts then be able to bring the phoenix that is L.T. out of retirement to rise from the ashes and give some Chargers fans exactly what it is that they have been crying for this offseason?
I truly have no idea. I have spent a good part of the day trying to research this to find out the answer. At this point, I have come up completely empty.
I will say this, in my opinion, there happens to be a lot of things that seem to give this season a “special” feeling or sense to it.
How special would it be to have L.T. in a Bolts uni when the Chargers are playing in the Superbowl this season?
We will most likely never find out. But what if we did?
