Jets’ Tomlinson Contemplating Retirement
NEW YORK (AP) — Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson has told a San Diego radio station that he is considering calling an end to his 11-year NFL career.
The 32-year-old Tomlinson told the Scott & BR Show on XX1090AM on Friday that he is “contemplating retirement.”
The running back said he had told his agent and coaches of his position, saying that chasing a championship would be his main motivation to return.
Tomlinson, a likely Hall of Famer, finished the season with 280 yards rushing and 449 yards receiving and three touchdowns in his second season with the Jets.
The former Chargers star became a leader on a team that failed to make the playoffs after beginning the season with championship aspirations.
