LaDainian Tomlinson Of Jets Acknowledges Retirement Possibility

Will New York Jets fans' final memory of LaDainian Tomlinson be the one-time great running back ripping teammate Santonio Holmes en route to riding off into retirement? That seems like a possibility -- one which Tomlinson acknowledged this week during a radio appearance on XX 1090 in San Diego with Scott and BR.

"I am contemplating retirement. That's what I told my coaches and told my agent and everybody," Tomlinson said. "That's exactly what it is. This is the first time in my playing career that I've actually honestly thought about this may be it for me."

The numbers would indicate that retirement might be a good idea for the 32-year-old future Hall of Famer. He gained only 280 yards rushing this season on 75 carries, by far the worst totals of an 11-year career that has seen him named to the pro Bowl five teams and voted as an All Pro three times. Tomlinson has 13,684 career rushing yards, fifth all time.

If he wants to play would you want him back, Jets' fans?
