LaDainian Tomlinson Will Retire A Charger

LaDainian Tomlinson is a Charger again, for one more day.

LT will sign a one-day contract with San Diego on Monday, and then start the countdown to Canton.

Tomlinson is without question this generation's greatest running back; his career accomplishments will make him a sure-fire Hall of Famer.

Here's a taste of what LT did in his 11 years in the NFL:
  • He scored a record 31 touchdowns in his 2006 MVP season, including 28 rushing touchdowns.
  • He set or tied 28 team records during his nine-year stint in San Diego
  • He's the first player to ever score 15 or more touchdowns in six consecutive seasons
  • He's still the only RB to rush for over 1,000 yards and catch 100 passes in the same season 
  • He leaves the game ranked fifth all-time with 13,684 rushing yards and second in rushing touchdowns with 145. 
LaDainian Tomlinson was a fierce competitor and one of the most dynamic offensive players to ever play in the NFL.

Let's send him off, montage-style.
