One of the greatest Frogs to ever play the game of football is finally calling it quits. According to ESPN.com, Tomlinson will sign with the San Diego Chargers and announce his retirement at a news conference Monday.


L.T. is hands down a first ballot Hall of Famer. Tomlinson ranks fifth on the all-time rushing list with 13,684 yards, second all-time with 145 career rushing touchdowns, and third all-time with 162 total touchdowns. Tomlinson was also the NFL MVP in 2006. That doesn't even include the greatness he accomplished while at TCU. What an impressive NFL career.


I hate to see L.T. retire. I have always liked watching him play. It is disappointing that he came so close to the Super Bowl multiple times, but could never get over the hump. It will be interesting to see what he decides to do next. Will we see L.T. on TV as an analyst? I think Coach Patterson should give him a call and bring him back to Ft. Worth! Either way, I am sure he will successful.


Congrats to L.T. for such an outstanding football career.
