Let’s Take a Moment to Honor LaDainian Tomlinson

LaDainian Tomlinson officially announced his retirement from the NFL this past week, and returned to the Chargers to sign a one day contract so that he could retire from the team that he built his legacy with. Tomlinson had some remarkable seasons with the San Diego Chargers, including his most historic season when he set the single season record for touchdowns with 31 back in 2006. Tomlinson played as a member of the Chargers for nine of his eleven seasons in the NFL, and in those nine seasons as a Charger, Tomlinson rushed for over 1,000 yards in 8 of them, and for no less than 10 touchdowns during any of those seasons. Tomlinson is essentially guaranteed a spot in Canton as a result of the pure brilliance and dominance he played with as a member of the Chargers backfield.

The #21 will forever be remembered by Chargers fans as the number associated with one of the most talented running backs to not only play for the Chargers, but to play in the NFL.
