L.T. is a daddy

We interrupt this portion of the NFL’s ssslow period to point out that Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson and his wife, LeTorsha, have had their first child.

Daylen was born earlier today, via multiple media reports.

It’s the latest chapter in a year of significant change for Tomlinson, who was cut by the Chargers and considered both the Vikings and the Jets before landing in New York.

The irony is that, at age 31, he’s considered ancient by NFL running back standards, and by current societal standards he’s a fairly young first-time father.

    I don’t know about that. Half the players in the NFL these days have kids before they get to the league.

    There’s nothing ironic about it. Rock on, Daylen!

  4. NYMets says: Jul 7, 2010 9:04 PM

    LT — first child and first SuperBowl ring all in the same season. Good for you.

    Good for LaDainian despite the public’s opinion i’ve always enjoyed his personality and I’m a fan of him. Let’s just hope LT doesn’t let Cromartie babysit.

    31 is young to have a kid? I think the producers of MTV’s 16 & Pregnant would disagree

  7. milehiclown says: Jul 7, 2010 9:06 PM

    Daylen? Seriously? DAYLEN Tomlinson?

  8. jkiddrock says: Jul 7, 2010 9:08 PM

    I’m guessing the name will start with the classic “La-” or “Le-(name here)”.
    Por ejemplo (for example in spannish)
    - LaBabian Tomlinson.
    - LeQueefha Tomlinson.
    - LaLarry Tomlinson.
    - LaShawn. LeSean. LaShonne. RaShonne.
    And so on and so forth…

    You media types really have the god complex, so was it a virgin birth “Daylen was born earlier today, via multiple media reports”?

  10. philwauke says: Jul 7, 2010 9:12 PM

    I expected to click on this and find out the hooker was pregnant.

    I’m 28 years old and have an 11 year old son…what does that place me in the standards of society?

    Depends. Are you a chick or a dude?
    Because on one hand it puts you in the “Teen slut” category and on the other it puts you in the “Dude!” category.

    HAHA your a complete idiot !

  15. digitalbath says: Jul 7, 2010 9:25 PM

  16. minhw0714 says: Jul 7, 2010 9:29 PM

    Jeff0621 – LOL. His son will average more yards per tote than his Dad in 2010.

  17. sven_ftw says: Jul 7, 2010 9:29 PM

    congrats to him!

    It places you among all of the rest of the losers who knock up girls in high school.

    RedGoneWild…
    This places you among stupid rednecks who are too stupid to use a condom in a proper way…

    - Young and foolish

    Doesn’t Travis Henry have kids in the NFL already?

  23. TampaBayBucs6and10 says: Jul 7, 2010 9:57 PM

    LaDaddy -N- Tomlinson. Good times. I hope the best for him and his wife. ….. I ahve a real question for all the dark folks out there. Where does the “La” and “Le” come from in the names? Is it Spanish or French? just wondering. Congrats to L Tomlinson.

  24. Bob says: Jul 7, 2010 9:58 PM

    “L.T. is a daddy”

    Lawrence Taylor is a daddy again?

    C’mon, get an original nickname. Geez…

  25. Bronkko says: Jul 7, 2010 10:01 PM

    31 in the hood is grampa age.

  26. stiller43 says: Jul 7, 2010 10:01 PM

    Fairly YOUNG first time father?
    You’re f**king high.

  27. stiller43 says: Jul 7, 2010 10:04 PM

    Now he’ll have some family company on the bench when he’s hurt during the playoffs again. (If Dirty Mark Sanchez can get them there)

  28. catchick says: Jul 7, 2010 10:11 PM

    Congratulations LT, this is a long time coming for you and couldn’t be happier!!!

  29. jimmySee says: Jul 7, 2010 10:12 PM

    Hope it puts you in the responsible dad category.
    Probably doesn’t put you in the college grad category (but if I’m wrong on that — congrats!).

  30. Occam says: Jul 7, 2010 10:16 PM

    L.T. still knows how to hit the hole.
    Ugh. I’m so ashamed of that joke. Ashamed.

  31. daffx4 says: Jul 7, 2010 10:26 PM

    Florio was just an old man by the time he was able to go to the doctor and have a tube baby

  32. TheToolofTools says: Jul 7, 2010 10:41 PM

    I was thinking L.T. meant Lawrence Taylor and he knocked up the young girls he raped.
    I kid you not.
    This is The Good L.T. story.

  33. nflhof says: Jul 7, 2010 10:52 PM

    Congrats Mr. Tomlinson. I am very happy for you!!!!!!!!

  34. cleanface says: Jul 7, 2010 10:57 PM

    At least his wife is already used to a baby crying all the time.

  35. LightningLucci says: Jul 7, 2010 11:48 PM

    For those who don’t know, the Tomlinsons have been trying for years to have a baby and have already miscarried at least once.
    Congrats to them.
    Now, back to the LT bashing. It’s all in good fun, right?

  36. prophet of the light says: Jul 8, 2010 1:10 AM

    Was this before or after he pulled his groin and sat on the slide lines as his team got eliminated?

  37. truecowboyfan says: Jul 8, 2010 4:24 AM

    Congrats to one of the great class acts of the NFL!!! A little future running back!!! Congrats L.T.!!!

  38. SDCade17 says: Jul 8, 2010 5:44 AM

    I wonder if Daylen came out of the womb doing the Electric Glide? Anyways, congratulations to them.

    lol, exactly.

  40. SomeFans says: Jul 8, 2010 7:40 AM

    I can see the excuses pouring out now… “I didnt get any sleep last night”… the baby stole my moves”… etc.
    LT =BUST in 2010

  41. overkil2 says: Jul 8, 2010 8:58 AM

    @RedGoneWild
    Maybe you shouldn’t have asked that question.

  42. Spygate Operative #1 says: Jul 8, 2010 11:27 AM

    Instead of bashing L.T. how bout holding him up as a fine example of an NFL player. Married to the baby’s mother and no arrests. It’s a start.

  44. Mike Daly says: Jul 8, 2010 12:57 PM

    Fairly young? By 31 that’s about midlevel on becoming a first-time dad – actually it’s closer to later and earlier.
    And frankly LT is such a puss that he doesn’t even deserve this level of happiness.

  45. funi says: Jul 8, 2010 5:12 PM

    Get a DNA test, might be Cromatie’s! He was in San Diego then and now in New York!
