    Tomlinson ready for demotion to 3rd down duties - CBSSports.com

    The New York Jets are having player-run practices during these locked out days. Attending these player-run practices is soon-to-be third-down running back LaDainian Tomlinson. The future Hall of Famer told the media on Tuesday that at this stage of his career, he is fine with a role constricted to coming off the bench in passing down situations.

    “Now at the end of my career, I’d love to be best third down back,” Tomlinson said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. He specifically acknowledged that third-year pro Shonn Greene is ready to assume the starting role.

    Tomlinson wasn’t the only Jets running back talking Tuesday. Joe McKnight was asked about the team’s selection of running back Bilal Powell in the fourth round of this past weekend’s draft. “I was pissed and motivated at the same time,” McKnight, the team’s third-rounder last year, said.

    What’s interesting is Powell’s presence means that either Tomlinson or McKnight likely won’t be around in 2011.

    LT you damn bastard. ;/ Keep rubbing it in.

    Did he just say "now at the end of my career" ?

    What happened to that statement from when he left that said he had 3 to 4 good years left in him ?

    Oh LT, you would make such a good coach with that type of doubletalk. ;)

    Because, he's a typical self-centered prima donna.

    He bought Rex Ryan a box of doughnuts so he should stay with the Jests.

    Is LT still playing?

    Not for the Chargers or anyone in our division, so who gives a crap?

    This conversation belongs at .com with the basement dwelling Einsteins there.

    The Jets never said that Tomlinson was going to be their 3rd down back. Rex Ryan is on Sirius right now and he avoided the question. Tomlinson assumed that he was going to be he 3rd down back.
