Jets' Tomlinson tells radio station he may retire

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson has told a San Diego radio station that he is considering calling an end to his 11-year NFL career.

The 32-year-old Tomlinson told the Scott & BR Show on XX1090AM on Friday that he is "contemplating retirement."

The running back said he had told his agent and coaches of his position, saying that chasing a championship would be his main motivation to return.

Tomlinson, a likely Hall of Famer, finished the season with 280 yards rushing and 449 yards receiving and three touchdowns in his second season with the Jets.

The former Chargers star became a leader on a team that failed to make the playoffs after beginning the season with championship aspirations.
