LaDainian Tomlinson Discusses Possible Retirement

New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson hinted on Thursday that he might retire following this season.

"This possibly could be my last game," Tomlinson told reporters.

If he does return to the NFL next season, Tomlinson said his return won't necessarily come with the Jets. And if he does return to the Jets, it won't be for the NFL minimum.

"I got kids, man," Tomlinson said, according to the New York Post's Bart Hubbuch.

Tomlinson has spent most of the season as New York's backup running back behind Shonn Greene, accumulating 224 yards on 64 carries for a 3.5-yard average and one touchdown while adding 38 receptions for 426 yards and two touchdowns.

For his career, Tomlinson has netted 13,628 yards rushing for 145 touchdowns and 4,749 yards receiving for an additional 15 scores. He is currently the NFL's active leader and the sixth-leading rusher in NFL history, trailing Jerome Bettis by 34 yards for fifth place.
