Our friend and NBC colleague Peter King reports via Twitter that free-agent running back LaDainian Tomlinson may (and he emphasizes the “may”) visit the Eagles and the Saints after visiting the Jets.
A source with knowledge of the situation told us earlier in the day that there’s a 90-percent chance Tomlinson will sign with either Minnesota or New York.
Tomlinson remains in Minnesota. Typically in matters of this nature, it’s critical to close the deal before the player has a chance to go elsewhere.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees has lobbied his team to sign L.T. The two men played together in San Diego.
