Minnesota’s “apparent” interest in LaDainian Tomlinson is very real; SI’s Jim Trotter reports that Tomlinson will visit the Vikings Thursday.
The week since Tomlinson was released has probably been humbling for the former Chargers running back. He’s had to wait in line while Chester Taylor got a big deal. Even Justin Fargas has received more interest.
Minnesota is a perfect fit worth waiting for. Tomlinson could chase his ring alongside another classy person at quarterback without taking a pounding.
Trotter writes that LT2 has no problem “sharing the backfield” but he wouldn’t really be sharing in Minnesota. He would be a clear backup that can help on passing downs.
Just making the visit to Minnesota is a good sign that Tomlinson understands what his role would be.
