Jeremy Conn: LaDanian Tomlinson Retires
Sports Fan Insider
I remember watching LT put the TCU program on the map, almost all by himself, and now he hangs up his cleats with the San Diego Chargers.
Tomlinson has had an amazing career and there is a serious debate as to whether he is in the top 5 running backs of all time. He has 145 career TDs, he is in the top 5 in rushing yards of all time with 13,684, he has one an MVP, and he holds numerous records in the NFL. LT scored a record-breaking 31 TDs in one season (28 rushing, 3 receiving, and 2 passing which don’t count).
I would put LT in the top 5 rushers of all time. My list would be Jim Brown, Walter Payton, Barry Sanders, LT, and Emmitt Smith. Tomlinson broke my heart on many occasions, but he was an absolute joy to watch.
It’s a shame he never won a Super Bowl ring but he is a first ballot hall of famer.
