Market starting to move for LT
By Bill Williamson
It looks like LaDainian Tomlinson is starting to get some action on the free-agency market.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Tomlinson is talking to the Minnesota Vikings and there are other teams that are interested. Schefter indicated that Tomlinson, 30, is not close to a deal.
It had been a slow start in free agency for Tomlinson. He has been available since Feb. 23 when San Diego cut the legendary star after nine seasons.
After his release, Tomlinson said he wanted to go to a contender and a team that has an established quarterback. Of course, we aren’t sure if the Vikings will have an established quarterback or not as Brett Favre continues to consider his options, as he seemingly does every offseason.
Perhaps Tomlinson’s signing would prompt Favre to return. Tomlinson would back up Adrian Peterson in Minnesota.
