NFL: Jets RB Tomlinson says he's moved on from Chargers


Associated Press

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. LaDainian Tomlinson is done talking about the San Diego Chargers.

The New York Jets running back said Thursday he has spoken his mind about why his production declined during his last two seasons with the Chargers and wishes the team well.

Tomlinson caused a stir last week when he said "everything was taken" from him in San Diego as the Chargers focused more on passing than running the football. He also said that caused his performance on film to be misleading.

Tomlinson ran for a career-low 732 yards and 3.3 yards per carry last season.

The eighth-leading rusher in NFL history, who signed a two-year deal with New York last month, said he felt it was his right to express his opinion after nine solid seasons in San Diego.
