LaDainian Tomlinson to retire with San Diego Chargers

The San Diego Chargers announced Sunday that running back LaDainian Tomlinson will re-sign with the team and then announce his retirement from the NFL during a Monday news conference.

Last month, Tomlinson told Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter that he was "95 percent" retired, and it only makes sense that the soon-to-be 33-year-old makes it official with the Chargers.

A first-round pick (No. 5 overall) out of TCU by the Chargers in the 2001 NFL Draft, Tomlinson started 141 games over nine seasons for the Chargers, rushing for 12,490 yards with 138 touchdowns and adding 530 receptions for 3,955 yards and 15 touchdowns out of the backfield. A five-time Pro Bowl selection, Tomlinson is the Chargers' all-time leader in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, ranks second in scoring (918 points) and is fifth on their all-time receptions list and 10th in receiving yards.

Tomlinson signed with the New York Jets as a free agent in 2010. In two seasons with the Jets, Tomlinson gained 1,194 yards and scored seven touchdowns on the ground, including a team-high 914 yards in 2010, with 94 receptions for 817 yards and two touchdowns out of the backfield.

Tomlinson twice led the NFL in rushing (2006, 2007), was a four-time first-team All-Pro and was named the league's Most Valuable Player in 2006. With 13,684 rushing yards in his career, Tomlinson currently ranks fifth on the all-time list, behind Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, Barry Sanders and Curtis Martin.

LaDainian Tomlinson will sign a one-day contract with the Chargers so he can retire as a member of the organization.

A lock for the Hall of Fame, Tomlinson will go down as arguably the best running back of the last decade. The five-time Pro Bowl selection spent nine seasons with the Chargers before wrapping up his career with a two-year stint with the Jets. He finishes with 13,684 rushing yards and 145 touchdowns on 3,174 carries, an average of 4.3 yards-per-carry. In 2006, he scored an NFL single-season record 28 rushing touchdowns. Adding to his impressive resume is his 624 career receptions, which included a 100-catch season in 2003. Tomlinson is only one of two tailbacks to achieve the rare feat. He ranks fifth all time in yards from scrimmage with 18,456.

One of my favorites. Thanks for all the hard work and excitement. And to me there's no argument. He was the best RB of the past decade.

A great player and one with the wisdom to get out of the Jets franchise before it implodes again. :Drink)

That's funny... But good for him! He should retire a charger. What a great career!

He was on Dan Patrick today. Never had 1 surgery his entire career, that's crazy. He got out easy for playing this game as a RB.

LaDainian Tomlinson was my friend.

He taught me that there are at least three ways for a RB to score a TD in my FF leagues.

(May thy chrysknife chip and shatter.)




That guy was fun to watch. Even without thinking of FF, and as a Broncos fan, I liked watching this guy play.

:Drink)
