Tom Telesco Asked Ladainian Tomlinson To Play For Chargers This Season

If you ever wondered if Tom Telesco is afraid to make a splash, then wonder no more. First, he makes the move of trading up to draft Manti Te’o and now word comes out that he was trying to convince Ladainian Tomlinson to play this season:

“I met [new general manager] Tom Telesco and [rookie head coach] Mike McCoy at the [NFL scouting] combine, and they asked me to come back and play,” Tomlinson said. “I saw [executive vice president] John Spanos at a restaurant in Indy, and he introduced me to them, and they brought it up. At first I thought they weren’t really serious, but they kept talking about it, and I realized it was real. They said, ‘You can come back and carry it 10 or 12 times a game. We’d like to have you here.’ ” Though flattered, Tomlinson said he didn’t seriously consider the offer: “No, because when I made the decision to walk away, I wrestled with it long and hard, and I knew it was final. Once I retired, that was it. My mind is in a different place. Mentally, going back would have been too hard.” – yahoo

WOW! Now that would have been something!

Instead of having Danny Woodhead, we could have had the legend taking the third down snaps! We could have had the legend back in town taking the rock!

That would have been some kind of awesome. Are you sure you don’t want to come back LT? We just drafted a mountain of a man to clear some room for you!
