Tomlinson Chose the Jets Because of Sanchez

When deciding where he would continue his career, LaDainian Tomlinson had narrowed it down to two choices, the New  York Jets or the Minnesota Vikings. Both teams were coming off seasons in which they reached their respective conference’s championship game. It was a tough choice for Tomlinson, who ultimately chose the Jets, and he said the main reason why he chose the Jets was because of Mark Sanchez.

“He was probably the main reason that I came here, honestly,” Tomlinson said Tuesday. “I (thought), ‘This guy has something special to him.’…I wanted to come here because of him.”

In hindsight, it was a great decision by Tomlinson. The Jets are 8-2, tied for best record in the NFL, while the 3-7 Vikings just fired their coach and are in complete disarray.
