Dielman reportedly leaning towards returning in 2012

Chargers guard Kris Dielman is considering retirement after suffering a seizure following a concussion, but early signs point towards a return to football.

Kevin Acee of the U-T San Diego reports that sources close to Dielman and team sources believe Dielman is leaning towards playing next season.

The Pro Bowler is due $5.5 million. While the Chargers are looking to save money elsewhere on the roster, Acee writes that the team will “happily pay” Dielman that money if he returns.
