Tomlinson, about to turn 33, says it's time to move on and enjoy
his family. He says he's still physically capable of playing but
that the game takes a mental toll.
Tomlinson was drafted in the first round by San Diego in 2001
and became one of the biggest stars in team history. He was with
the Chargers for nine seasons before playing the last two seasons
with the New York Jets.
Tomlinson was voted NFL MVP in 2006, when he set league
single-season records with 31 touchdowns, including 28 rushing, and
186 points.
Tomlinson finishes his career with 13,684 yards, fifth all-time,
and 145 touchdowns.
