LaDainian Tomlinson Visits, Moves on

LaDainian Tomlinson has visited Minnesota, heard what Brad Childress and Zygi Wilf and Rick Spielman had to say…and gone on to New York to sit down with Rex Ryan and the Jets.

If Tomlinson is looking for touches, New York would probably be the better destination.  If he’s looking for a chance to win a championship?

The conventional wisdom is that Minnesota would afford him the better opportunity to taste Super Bowl glory.  On the assumption that That Guy and not Tarvaris Jackson, Sage Rosenfels or Tim Tebow would be starting at quarterback.

It would be interesting to know what Chilly told Tomlinson about the That Guy situation.  Did he assure LT that TG will indeed be behind center in 2010?  Or did he have to confess that even he doesn’t know?

One thing we know Chilly told Tomlinson:  if he does join the Purple, he will be the #2 back behind Adrian Peterson.

Actually, make that the #1A back.

Chilly already backpedaling on his Adrian Peterson is the man in Minnesota talk, to make Tomlinson more comfortable.  They really want this guy bad.  They know they need to replace Chester Taylor, and they know there’s no one else out there who can give them anything close to Chester’s production.

It’s LT or bad news for the Vikings.

Let’s hope yesterday’s presentation impressed him.  He certainly had enough fuss made about him in the media.  If he likes silly attention from newspaper reporters – for instance, endless Twitter updates about his limo – he should love Minneapolis.
