Report: Bolts shopping Cromartie

Despite going 13-3 and winning the AFC West, the San Diego Chargers know they have some needs to address this offseason.

One of those needs is the running back position.

The Bolts are currently in the process of exploring trade scenarios which involve dealing cornerback Antonio Cromartie in exchange for a running back, according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.com.

It makes sense. LaDainian Tomlinson will be 31-years-old this June and is coming off the worst statistical season of his career in which he averaged just 3.3 yards per carry and failed to top 1,000 yards rushing for the first time ever. In addition, L.T. is set to earn close to $5 million in 2010, so based on his decrease in production you can figure the Chargers know a better way to spend that money.

While five-year veteran Darren Sproles makes for a nice weapon in head coach Norv Turner’s offense, there are plenty of questions regarding the 5’6” running back’s ability to handle a full workload.

The 25-year-old Cromartie has been in San Diego since being drafted by the Chargers in 2006. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2007, but has had some run-ins with the organization over the past year and plays a position in which the Chargers already have two first-round draft picks on the roster in Quentin Jammer and Antoine Cason.

The question now becomes, which teams have a need at cornerback with running backs to deal?
