Tomlinson headed back to San Diego

Just a quick update to let you know where the chase for free agent running back LaDainian Tomlinson now stands.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tomlinson departed the New York area Saturday morning and is on his way back to San Diego. That jives with the timetable Tomlinson had previously told Minnesota he would follow: visit the Jets and then return home to consider his options and discuss them with his wife.

Based on travel time and other hurdles, a decision might not come until Sunday or Monday. As always, we'll keep you updated.
