We first heard from LaDainian Tomlinson on Tuesday as to the variety of reasons he chose to sign with the Jets over the Vikings. But when his interview from The Dan Patrick Show reached the NFL.com newsroom Wednesday, it included one reason why he didn’t: Money.
That’s something we hadn’t heard out of L.T.
“I could have taken more money to go to Minnesota,” Tomlinson told Patrick.
Tomlinson said his familiarity with Brian Schottenheimer and the Jets’ offense was the biggest factor in his decision, adding that even if he knew Brett Favre was returning, he would have chosen the Jets.
