The Facts: Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated recently tweeted that Tomlinson said he is "95 percent retired." Tomlinson added that it will take the right team and situation to get him to play again.
Diehards Line:As PFT's Mike Florio notes, the "right team" is likely a Super Bowl contender, and the "right situation" is likely a depth chart where he would be no lower than No. 2. And where he may get something more than the veteran minimum. Barring an injury to a key player, Tomlinson likely won't find what he wants. ... And if he's done? We agree with Florio's contention that Tomlinson has done enough to make the Hall of Fame, probably on the first try. He's fifth all-time in rushing yards (13,684), second all-time in rushing touchdowns (145) and third all-time in total touchdowns (162). Tomlinson also owns a single-season record that could be very hard to break; with 31 touchdowns in 2006, the closest anyone has come in the five seasons since LT scored them is LeSean McCoy, with 20 in 2011.
