LaDainian Tomlinson retired yesterday, after 11 years in the NFL, the last two with the New York Jets. Jets officials released statements regarding the running back. First from Woody Johnson:

“People and players like LaDainian Tomlinson don’t come around very often, if at all. His humility and work ethic made it clear why he will be remembered as one of the game’s best players. Without question, his next stop will be the Pro Football Hall of Fame.”

The next is from GM Mike Tannenbaum:

“During my time around LaDainian, he never took one day for granted when it came to any aspect of his performance. His commitment drew his teammates to him and elevated everyone that came in contact with him. On the field, he was a dynamic, versatile player who was everything you could ask for in a running back. He could significantly affect the outcome of a game as a ball carrier, but also was superior as a receiver and in pass protection. He had a positive impact on our organization and I am grateful for his time with the New York Jets.”
