    LaDainian Tomlinson was just as thrilled that he got to meet one of his idols, Hall of Famer Jim Brown, before the Chargers played the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

    Tomlinson turned a corner outside the locker room at Qualcomm Stadium and almost ran into Brown, who is an executive advisor for the Browns.

    "It was almost kind of like stunning seeing him there," Tomlinson said Monday. "I was thinking to myself, 'My goodness, that's Jim Brown.' I've never met him before, so the first thing I do is go over to shake his hand just to say, 'Hey, you inspired me to be a runner.'
