L.T. could be attractive to one or more of the final eight teams

NFL_tomlinson2_250.jpgNow that the Chargers have dumped one of the best players in franchise history, the first teams to consider as candidates for his services are the best teams from the most recently completed football season.

As we recently pointed out, players who became free agents as a result of being released from their contracts are fair game for the final eight teams:  the Ravens, Jets, Colts, Cardinals, Cowboys, Saints, Vikings, and Chargers.  Assuming that the Chargers won’t be bringing L.T. back, and given that the Cowboys, Ravens, Cardinals, Saints, and Jets are largely set at tailback, the Colts and the Vikings become intriguing candidates for L.T.’s services.

In Indy, the running game has been anemic of late.  Though Tomlinson might not do as much for the attack as he would have done in past years, he could be an upgrade for the current Colts roster.

In Minnesota, the Vikings are faced with the question of whether Chester Taylor, who’ll be 31 in September, should be re-signed.  Should they not at least consider Tomlinson as an alternative before making a decision on Taylor?

Imagine for a moment the possibility of Tomlinson and Adrian Peterson sharing carries.  Consider the impact that the upgrade from Taylor to Tomlinson might have on the decision of Brett Favre to return for another season.

And think about the influence that Tomlinson, a native of Waco, Texas, could have on Peterson, who grew up less than 100 miles away in Palestine.

Playing for the Vikings or the Colts also would give Tomlinson the chance to win a Super Bowl ring, which then could be rubbed in the face of San Diego G.M. A.J. Smith.

Though Tomlinson might expect more money than the open market will pay him, the lure of finally winning it all could be the thing that persuades him to accept a reduced role with a contender — and it could make him very attractive to teams that can’t freely sign free agents who acquire their status via the expiration, not termination, of a contract.

  1. I like the Vikings option, Mike.
    But your Houston Texans prediction is more likely to come to fruition

  2. Wouldn’t be surprised if he decided to reunite with Brees (A REAL QB) and play for the drive for a ring and not the money. I’m sure he isn’t struggling financially

  3. Consider the impact that the upgrade from Taylor to Tomlinson
    upgrade?? he may still have something left but he would hardly be an “upgrade” from CT thats like saying the Saints signed Joe Montana as an upgrade over Mark Brunell (yeah in their prime they were better but not any longer) to back up Brees

  4. It seems like LT would need a really solid O-line to open holes for him and he, unfortunately, would not find that with the Colts. And does he block and catch the ball well enough to fit in with Peyton and Co.? I would like to see the Colts make a move on Chester Taylor.

  5. My money is on Houston. It’s the perfect storm -L.T. coming back to this home state, the Texans are weak at the RB position, and Kubiak is in desperate need of a playoff berth that he might be willing to gamble on a 30-year old RB (See Exhibit A, Ahman Green).
    L.T. would also have a strong chance of starting, which is what he would want. Frankly, I’d be shocked if he landed anywhere else.

  6. lt and peterson sharing carries? LT has been talkin how much better he was that Peterson this year, so i dont think thats gonna work!

  7. Taylor is better than Tomlinson. You should watch more football and spend less time thinking of ways to flame Urban Meyer.

  8. I’m sorry the “upgrade from Taylor to Tomlinson”. That is a freaking laugh. I’ll take Taylor over Tomlinson right now. Runs much harder and is an excellent receiver as well.

  9. I don’t think most NFL people would agree that Tomlinson is an upgrade over Chester Taylor. Lot more wear on Tomlinson.

  10. Tomlinson as an alternative to taylor in Minny? Horrible, amount of carries here florio is the difference,. Tomlinson is 31 in june. So he would be older and have almost 3xs as many carries than taylor does. taylor is already in minnys system and is a good pass blocker.
    The texans have already declined.

  11. the seahawks could use him! we love shelling out on washed up RB’s. i.e. edderrgin james and julius jones.

  12. I don’t see any of these teams signing L.T., but if I had to pick one of these teams it would be the Colts

  13. I doubt Polian would go after a veteran free agent. If he didn’t bring back Edge, you can definitely forget about LT.

  14. You are really reaching here even by your standards. Colts problem is the O-line not the backs. No one wants an overpriced backup who’ll whine for carries.

  15. He still scores TD’s and he rarely ever fumbles. He could be great late game insurance to run out the clock and not turn the ball over. He still has open field moves and could be very helpful in thew screen game. He definitely can still find the endzone.
    I think he would be valuable to the Vikings whether Taylor returns or not. Low salary heavy on incentives that prolly only he thinks he can reach.
    I’m sure wherever he ends up he will continue to own the Raiders.
    And if he does win a SB I hope he takes a picture of himself with it and sends it to Ego Smith every day.

  16. For the Vikings LT is NOT an upgrade over Chester Taylor. When he gets his carries Chester runs just as hard as Adrian, anyone who watches Vikes on TV routinely hears announcers confuse #28 with #29. Chester has become one of the better 3rd down backs and is a solid all-around player. Can LT pass-protect as well? Doubt it … Chester put up 1,200 yards and didn’t bitch when Adrian took his starting job. LT is moody and undependable. Vikes need to KEEP & REWARD Chester with a nice contract.

  17. Consider the impact that the upgrade from Taylor to Tomlinson might have on the decision of Brett Favre to return for another season.
    Is Tomlinson really an upgrade over Chester? They both averaged 3.6 YPC last year, but Taylor’s averaged 1.1 more yards per catch. I think Taylor could be the primary RB for at least half the teams in this league. Sadly, L.T. looks done. Not Shaun Alexander-done, but not far off.

  18. I think ar1888 is right. The Chargers would certainly be considering him at a lower salary. Also, the Texans makes sense, as does Indy. All in all, if he goes to a contender, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s NE.
    Non playoff teams that make the most sense include the Texans (unless they draft), Miami, pending Brown’s status, and Seattle, where nobody on the current roster is better than a 30 y.o. Tomlinson.

  19. “Playing for the Vikings……..also would give Tomlinson the chance to win a Super Bowl ring, which then could be rubbed in the face of San Diego G.M. A.J. Smith.”
    Really Mike, this is PFT.com not PFT(fiction section).com.
    On a serious note, I don’t think LT is an upgrade over Chester Taylor. Chester may be 30 years old, but the tires have way more tread on them that LT’s top fuel dragster slicks. Tomlinson WAS good. There is nothing left in the tank. I hope the Vikings do sign him and dump Chester Taylor. Chester Taylor can still play.

  20. If people studied who made the biggest plays on key downs, they’d figure out that Chester Taylor, not AP, was the Vikings’ clutch back. He’s a better receiver, too. And he doesn’t drop the ball. I don’t see LT as any real upgrade over Taylor. There’s a reason San Diego is dumping him.

  21. Btw, LT is actually 3 months OLDER than Chester Taylor, so this has nothing to do with the ages of these RB’s. However Chester is fresher in his career, by having only 1 year as a starter he’s taken a lot fewer hits.

  22. LT will not sign with a team to be their backup, and none of the top 8 teams really need a starter. I think you blew off Arizona too quickly, and that they’d be more interested than the Colts. Still, would he really sign with a team that already has a clear #1? So what other teams need a #1? I’d say that the Seahawks, Redskins, Rams, Broncos, Chiefs, Browns, Texans, Dolphins, Bills, and Patriots would all the best bets (assuming he’s confident against Forsett and SJ). Broncos and Chiefs would both be intriguing places that might be a good fit. Texans and Redskins might be appealing choices to be able to play for Shanahan or his protege. He has had some public issues with Bilichick, but the Patriots might be an amazing opportunity for both sides and make a lot of sense. What better team to take an aging veteran and return him to one or two last glory seasons before he retires? Hmmmm…

  23. Great talent. Not too bright. The enduring image of him sitting on the bench in a playoff game… thinking he’d be back next year… no worries.
    He’d better sign with a perrenial playoff team and hope someone carries his ass to the Super Bowl.

  24. Btw, LT is actually 3 months OLDER than Chester Taylor, so this has nothing to do with the ages of these RB’s. However Chester is fresher in his career, by having only 1 year as a starter he’s taken a lot fewer hits.

  26. Unless he is interested in a job along the O-Line, I don’t think LT would help the Colts in their running game.

  27. The Packer fans have the IQ of about 70.Packer fans really dont count as people and therefor their opinions dont count.They are like the weak kids who get beat up every day at school except they never went to school.

  28. Wow! Grat Vikings homer article there, Florio. Jus tthink how greeat Tomlinson would be in the Packers backfield with Ryan Grant and Aaron Rodgers? With those wide recivers he would never have to see 8 in a box. Please…this is just pathetic.

  29. If he wants a ring he should go Indy before Vikes. I don’t think at this point he is any more of an upgrade than Chester Taylor, who is underrated in my opinion.

  30. I really see it being the jets or the steelers. With Parker going, and the possibility of Thomas Jones getting cut. Lt would make a nice complement to the young backs on those teams. Unless with his new baby he doesn’t want to move cross country.

  31. Consider the impact that the upgrade from Taylor to Tomlinson might have on the decision of Brett Favre to return for another season.
    hardly an upgrade from Taylor. its like saying imagine the Saints signing Joe Montana as an upgrade over Mark Brunell as a backup to Brees. (yeah in their prime they were better but not now)

  32. Tomlinson might be a help to a contending team, but the older he gets the slower he gets, and the slower he gets the more he whines. He couldn’t carry a team when he had good wheels, and now that he’s beat down he’s probably more trouble than he’s worth. So I hope he signs with Indy. Or New England.

  33. He could teach Adrian Peterson how to hold onto the football. LT only fumbled a couple times a year.
    I would hate to see him in another uniform, though.

  34. Also, the Vikings took a chance on a very old Favre last year and that gamble worked out quite well. They may be willing to take a similar risk with a “washed up” RB who provided incredible leadership and was credited with turning around the Chargers’ 07 season with an impassioned lockerroom speech.

  35. LT got a dissappointing phone call today. He didnt like that call, naw, naw, naw, not a very good call!

  36. Patriots don’t need a crybaby whiner who bitched out of the AFC title game while Rivers played with a torn ACL

  37. Mike, articles like this undermine your credibility. Tomlinson is no upgrade over Chester Taylor, and anyone who follows football knows this. This is John Clayton-esque.

  38. Let the Redskins have him and see how long it takes him and Portis to kill one another. Two washed up egotisical has beens fighting to retain their 2.5 yards/carry next season

  39. If Florio was a Vikings homer, he’d know that Tomlinson isn’t an upgrade to Chester Taylor. At the right price, he’d make one hell of an addition to a fearsome Vikings running attack — one they’ll need if Favre isn’t back.

  40. this is not an upgrade 2 any contender.. the burst is gone.. not a power back.. receiving skills r not enough 2 merit a spot because of ur name.. hope the saints don’t even consider moving regg & replacing him with this guy.. @ this point he is roughly 1/2 the player regg is & that’s not saying much..

    LT agreeing to back up Adrian Peterson. What a laugh.
    ————————————————
    I agree, afterall LT’s ego is huge, remember the comments he made about being the overall better RB than Peterson this year? Where did LT go this season?

  43. Much as I respect what the Vikes accomplished last year, I can’t help saying that anyone with Tomlinson’s ability to HOLD ONTO THE FOOTBALL would be an upgrade to their organization. But seriously, the Vikes don’t really need him. They just need to work on the ball-handling skills of the great back they’ve got.
    As for Tomlinson–he was set to make $5 mill this year from the Chargers and refused to take a cut despite his diminished production. So what kind of money would he expect from another team? And who’d be willing to pay? Those are the only relevant questions.

    LOL, where did Fumbles All Day go?? Bunch of chumps—–>> replace the “u” with “a” from chumps and it spells Saints!
    ~~~whodaywhodat

  47. For all of you saying that LT is NOT an upgrade over Chester Taylor… AMEN!!! Keep Taylor and pay the man!!!

  48. Final Eight have RB’s, what would Tomlinson bring that they do not already have? Nothing
    Tomlinson had a good career in SD but never quite lived up to the hype with no playoff wins (one) because he seemed to always be injured when the team really needed him.
    NAH, I see him accepting a one year one million contract being a second or third back for a middle team like Jacksonville, Houston, or Tennessee.

  49. I would’ve said that the Saints and Chargers were the only two teams possible. The Colts have two backs and need to spend money elsewhere. The Vikings have this generation’s LT and I bet they resign Taylor to a bargain; he’s old and may prefer the title shot to the faux starting gig for guaranteed money a la Derrick Ward. The Saints have 3 backs already, yes, but they weren’t very durable last year and LT will be able to catch balls out of the backfield better than Thomas or Bell and possibly Bush. Bush will have to restructure anyways, so maybe the Saints use some of that money (1 or 2 mill) to pay LT. I guess the Chargers are going to have to draft someone because it doesn’t seem like a stud-heavy free agent RB market (trade for Lynch). I can see the argument that he couldn’t return to the locker room after taking a pay cut, so while the Chargers make sense, it obviously won’t happen.

  50. This Vike fan would pick Taylor over LT, but Taylor may leave for a starting RB job and more money, so LT as a fall back plan could ease the pain of Taylor’s departure and still give LT a chance to win. Yet it would be wierd after he trashed Peterson last summer.

  51. Dear Los Angeles,
    I hope you are getting that new stadium ready because you have a tenant all lined up. We will see you in a couple years.

    Actually idiot, he didn’t go anywhere. Everyone knows about his fumbling problems so thats not news, but if you recall dumbass he ran for 3tds and over 100yards against your Saints.
    Sure the Vikings lost, but AP was a factor whether he played well or not, had 18tds to his name this season and despite having a few 100 yard games still had over 1000 rushing yards and improved his recieving yards.
    Now I’m not going to bash you anymore because I realize your IQ is lower than the amount of yards per carry LT had on the season.

    UGGHHH, Canadians…..man they annoy me. I thought they had their own sport to watch. How do you bash what LT did or did not do this year when your ‘back was one of the biggest dissapoinments this past year. Vikes wouldnt have won the North, and probably doesnt even make playoffs without Lord Favre at the helm(Lookin’ forward to smackin’ that old ass again). Your best hopes is you get LT, cuz “All Day” has ALREADY turned into “YesterDay.”
    P.S. Bet you thought your Canadians had a shot in hell to beat uthe USA in your own beloved sport, but then you remembered, you are just Canada. A whopping 15 medals behind us!!

  54. I hate to go out on a limb here, but I predict Tomlinson will sign with one of the 32 teams in the NFL.
    I hope my prediction has been helpful.

  55. I didnt no who wrote this while I was reading it but the more I read I was hoping it wasnt Florio. As it turns out it was.
    For the past 2-3 years everytime he has talked about Tomilinson he has talked about him being washed up or close to 30 or over 30 years old. That a 30 year old back who has touched the ball as much as LT cant be an effective rb in the NFL.
    Then you have said multiple times in the past and also recently that Chester Taylor is a good player and that he could be a starter for another team. That b/c of AP he hasnt took as much damage as most 30 year old rbs.
    But now all the sudden LT would be an upgrade over Taylor? You need to stop everything else your doing and just focus on PFT. Because obviously you have no idea what content you have been putting out.
    While I was reading this I was sure it was Rosenthal that wrote it because there was no way Florio would say this after all the things he has said contrary to the story.
    I fooled myself into believing that there was no way that Florio could be anymore clueless. But he lowered the bar again and I stand corrected.

    You are one of the dumbest people to come to this site. Brett Favre also wouldn’t have been effective if he didn’t have AP in the backfield.. He commands an 7 and 8 man front.
    It’s sad you have to resort to Attacking the country in which one resides. I also hate hockey, and I do not watch the Olympics because I don’t enjoy any of the sports except for snowboarding.
    Quite frankily I could care less how many medals the USA has compared to Canada. Congradulations but it means nothing to me, its pure entertainment. You are seriously a disgrace to the US, and it’s people. So keep chanting whodatwhodat but it doesn’t change the fact you are a moron.

  57. What if…
    LT goes to the Saints… they do a repeat. How could AJ Smith and Co. not be fired lol. Two franchise worthy players both get their SB rings with the same team after being let go by the Chargers.
    That’d be almost too funny. Sure my Charger friends would love it.

  58. Colts’ problem is the OL, not the backs. The Colts are set with Addai, Brown, Hart and Simpson. No real need for LT.

  59. LOL to all those thinking that LT isn’t an upgrade over Chester Taylor. The funniest thing I read was that LT is undependable. Hmm, unless I’m mistaken, when the Chargers started an inexperienced Rivers, who was it that carried the team on his back to playoffs?
    LT is still a good pass protector, and was widely regarded by most to be second only to Clinton Portis. He can still be a good receiver out of the backfield, and can still make guys miss in the open field which he did quite a few times this year. On top of that, LT has had 962 touches the last 3 years, with only 3 fumbles. Chester Taylor? He’s had 470 with 9 fumbles. Doesn’t Minnesota ALREADY have 1 guy with fumbling problems? Career wise? LT has fumbled 27 times in his career, and has lost 12 fumbles to Taylor’s 22 career fumbles and 15 lost.
    But you guys are right. Taylor is DEFINITELY an upgrade over LT….
    And by the way, for all the people who say LT has never shown up in playoffs, well 187 total offensive yards and 2 TD’s against the Pats in 07 playoffs beg to differ.

  60. I’m surprised that people still bring up the AFCC vs the Pats as a knock on Tomlinson. I can understand the visor thing, even though thats just beating a dead horse. But considering actual players, you know, guys who play the sport(unlike sitting behind a keyboard thinking they’re saying clever remarks while their mom makes them their sandwiches) said that an ACL tear isn’t as important to a QB as it is to a RB. A quarterback isn’t running around making cuts like a runningback. And it was universally agreed upon by knowledgeable references, such as doctors and players who had the type of injury, that sprained ACL’s generally take 2-5 weeks to recover from, otherwise the player is just running straight without the ability to make cuts.
    Yet somehow LT has an ego, despite acknowledging that he can’t help his team as much as other players and having them take his place. You guys are morons….

  61. Indy running game wasn’t anemic at all in the Super Bowl, Florio. Did you watch the game? it was the greatest quarterback to ever play the game who blew it.
    LT to the Eagles..nope.

  62. why would the colts, who have 2 first round backs taken in the last few years, sign LT. Their problem in the run game is not the backs. their problem is 1. they don’t really try and run the ball 2. the line is undersized but agile to protect peyton, but not really to have a dominant running game. The colts running game retired with Tarik Glenn

  63. The Four opurtunities I see out there are as follows:
    Not a raider fan But I can see him getting the money he wants and mentor the young raider backs! Only draw back is that whole super bowl thing!!!
    To see a Super Bowl ring oppurtunity and go to a team that needs a solid back I would go with the Steelers!
    A scary but good duo and to get paid he could also go to Washington and share the carries with another aging back Clinton Portis!!
    Lastly the Broncos! He could mentor the young but talented Knowshawn Moreno!!! That would also take some attention away from the whole Brandon Marshall ordeal

  64. Signing Peppers to play opposite Allen would be nice, too.
    And, and, and… ; )
    Money and salary cap room don’t cooperate.

  65. Not a Charger fan but the way the managament and Turner used LT wasn’t very imaginative at all. I’d like to see any running back try and run behind that offensive line and the offensive scheme they have down there. W/ a better 0-line and a solid fullback that team would have been really tough to beat.
    Turner and AJ clearly were not seeing LT as part of the team, anymore. Shame.

    The expected. Resorts to name calling when talking about the Superior country. Nice job.

  67. That really would be funny if LT went to the Saints and they repeated, giving 2 former Chargers a ring. But seriously, the Saints don’t need ANY upgrades on offense (maybe left tackle, maybe). They need to concentrate on fine tuning their much improved defense. If they can get the right pieces in place there to match their offense, we WILL be talking about a dynasty in the making.

  68. No way in hell LT is an upgrade over Chester the Molester. As a matter of fact, if the Vikings get rid of a running back it should be AP. (I don’t say that lightly, AP is a monster and I’m a huge fan, but he doesn’t get it, and he won’t until he gets traded for his fumbles. Yeah, he’ll win a Ring with another team if we trade him, but there is no guarantee we will win a Ring in MN if we keep him.)

    So what other teams need a #1? I’d say that the Seahawks, Redskins, Rams, Broncos, Chiefs, Browns, Texans, Dolphins, Bills, and Patriots would all the best bets.
    —————————–
    The Rams and Dolphins wouldn’t want LT as a #1.
    Stephen Jackson, Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown are all better than LT.

  70. packers, saints, texans.and steelers. only four teams i can see him going to and in my mind only three that make sense. his problem was the offensive line was beyond useless at run support not that he’s done, ya he lost a step but he’s still in my top 15 backs in the league, and no oh no i dropped the ball all day peterson is not number 1, oh my god did something just run past us chris johnson is no1.

  71. No one has mentioned LT going to the Patriots yet.There he would be paired with a great organization and great players on the offensive side of the ball…Tom Brady,Randy Moss,Wes Welker and Tomlinson would give the Patriots a lot of weapons to make a quick turn-around
    from this past year’s disasterous season.LT knows how to find the end-zone, which is where the Patriots need him most.
    He is a capable pass-blocker, but like manning,Brady gets rid of the ball quickly on most plays, especially when throwing to Welker,which is often.LT wouldn’t be needed to block as often there; where as in San Diego Norv Turner wants to throw the ball deep down the field off of play-action, which requires a five-to-seven step drop and puts more pressure on running backs to be able to hold a block even longer.
    Plus, in New England, he could be the number one back without having to carry the load he would with a more traditional type of offense
    that relies on running power plays and play-action passing. And people forget that LT is a very capable pass receiver out of the back field, check his stats.

  72. Florio is pretty un-biased. He didn’t predict the Vikings would win the Super Bowl.
    He predicted another annual choke-job much like most of the rest of the Viking faithful who have seen the same old shit for years now.
