Former San Diego Chargers RB Ladainian Tomlinson will join the NFL Network and will be part of the network’s new show called “First on the Field.” LT will be the first face you get to see on Sunday Morning television with Melissa Stark, Sterling Sharpe and Michael Lombardi.

“We are excited to add LaDainian Tomlinson to the NFL Network team and what better way to introduce him on a new show to kick off NFL Sundays,” said NFL Network Executive Producer Eric Weinberger. “Our seasoned First on the Field roster will benefit from the fresh off-the-field perspective from one of history’s top running backs.” –

 Good to see LT catch onto a television gig. Knew that he was growing out those cornrows to look pretty on television somewhere. It will be interesting to hear his analysis of the Chargers. Will he be a homer or a hater?
