One of the favorites to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend, legendary Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson was asked how he felt about the possibility of his hated AFC Rival, the Oakland Raiders, relocating to San Diego.

With the Raiders' stadium deal in Las Vegas unraveling, there's rumblings that owner Mark Davis could be interested in talking to San Diego officials about filling the void in their city left by the Chargers relocating to Los Angeles.

Tomlinson dominated against the Raiders during his time with the Chargers, with his team posting a 14-5 record against the Silver and Black. Tomlinson rushed for a career-high 2,055 yards and recorded 26 total touchdowns in 19 games against the Raiders.

"Please, do I have to comment on that one?" asked Tomlinson, holding back a smile. "I mean, that should tell you how I feel about that. That would be awful."

Tomlinson's teammate with the Chargers from 2002 to 2005, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees also commented on the team moving from San Diego to Los Angeles. Brees has an offseason home north of this city in Del Mar.
