Tomlinson will sign with Chargers, retire


LaDainian Tomlinson’s brilliant NFL career will officially end when he ceremoniously rejoins the San Diego Chargers for a day. The Chargers said Sunday that Tomlinson, the fifth-leading rusher in league history, will sign with the team today and then announce his retirement. Tomlinson was drafted in the first round by San Diego in 2001 and spent the first nine years of his career with the Chargers. He played the last two seasons with the New York Jets. Tomlinson won the MVP in ’06, when he set NFL single-season records with 31 touchdowns, including 28 rushing, and 186 points. He ran for a career-high 1,815 yards that year, giving him the first of two straight league rushing titles. Tomlinson finishes his career with 13,684 yards and 145 touchdowns. – AP
