Hangin Up The Cleats
Today marked a day that the NFL will surely not forget as one of the greatest running backs of this generation retired from the league. LaDainian Tomlinson was certainly a big force for the Chargers in his prime and sparked their team in many regular season and playoff games. Tomlinson was a natural running back out of TCU and became an NFL MVP in 2006. His 11 year career was split between the San Diego Chargers and New York Jets. In his prime he was considered the most deadly running back in the league. He could break off for 70 yard TD’s or power through the line for a goaline touchdown. LT held single season records for TD’s and points and definitely had his share of hall of fame moments. Personally, I believe that he is a first ballot hall of famer and will be put down in the history books. He is 5th the all time rushing yards list with 13,684 and had 145 touchdowns. After signing a one day contract with the Chargers, LT hung up the cleats as a Charger. His home was in San Diego and he was always supported by them. Overall, LT was one of my favorite players and I was shocked and sad to see him leave the game. His legacy is forever lasting. Thanks for reading my article and please check out others. Have a great day!
