Tomlinson Thinks Team Building for Camp Will be a Challenge

With the Jets announcing that they’re going to stay home for training camp this summer, running back LaDainian Tomlinson thinks team-building will be more of a challenge, Jenny Vrentas of The Star-Ledger reports.

“I think it will be more of a challenge, yes,” Tomlinson said on Wednesday. “Guys have more access to things that they really know: bigger city, their homes, whatever. So that will be more of a challenge. Whereas in Cortland, we were all we had, so we kind of had to stick together.”

Tomlinson, who turned 32 last week, is entering his second season with the Jets, and 2011 will be his 11th season in the NFL. Tomlinson is expected to have a reduced role this season, with Shonn Greene expected to take over as the team’s feature back.

Unlike most veterans, Tomlinson lamented the loss of offseason workouts.

“It is frustrating, because we expected to build on what we did last year, and the way you do it is being around each other again and starting back up and going through the offseason workouts,” Tomlinson said. “But at the same time, I think we have done enough to keep us in tune to the playbook, to that camaraderie we have as a team. So I’m not terribly concerned as if we were one of the teams who haven’t done anything.”
