Report: Jets will bring back LaDainian Tomlinson

Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum said in January that LaDainian Tomlinson should be back with the team in 2011, but mentioned that “things could” change.

Things won’t change before a work stoppage.

ESPNNewYork.com’s Rich Cimini reports the Jets plan to bring back Tomlinson to pair with Shonn Gronne and Joe McKnight for a three-headed running back attack.  Cimini notes that Tomlinson’s playoff effort against the Colts helped clinch his roster spot.

Things could always change in training camp, if there is a training camp.  The team wants to use McKnight more, so Tomlinson’s workload is likely to be reduced.  He’s due $2.4 million in 2011.
