LaDanian Tomlinson was ready to retire after eleven seasons in the NFL, but the NFL wasn’t quite ready for him to retire.

Many teams offered Tomlinson the opportunity to continue playing, including the Denver Broncos. According to the Union Times – San Diego, Tomlinson said that the only team he considered playing for this season was the Broncos.

The only team I really gave a thought to was the Broncos, because of Peyton. We talked. . . . It made me pause a little (and think), ‘Was this what I really want to do?’ … I said, ‘They got Peyton, they have a good defense already; they went deep in the playoffs with Tim Tebow, what are they going to do with Peyton?’ I seriously thought about it.” – LaDanian Tomlinson (U-T San Diego)
