RB LaDainian Tomlinson on Sports Illustrated

RB LaDainian Tomlinson faced his former team last week and felt that the victory closed that chapter.  LT is included in a Sports Illustrated story called "Pile on the Chargers" written by Damon Hack.  Here is an excerpt:

Tomlinson who was rushed out of San Diego after nine stellar years because the team felt it was time to go in a different direction said, "I'd be lying if I said this didn't add some satisfaction."

Since joining the Jets, LT has taken on a role unfamiliar to him when he was with the Chargers: leading the team with fiery pregame speeches, an out-of-body experience for him.  "That really never has been my personality to be that guy," Tomlinson says, "but sometimes you're called upon to be something for your team."

The issue is out on newsstands now, so hurry before it runs out.
