Tomlinson has signed a one-day contract with the San Diego Chargers and announced his retirement after a brilliant 11-year NFL career. He was drafted in the first round by San Diego in 2001 and became one of the biggest stars in team history. Tomlinson was with the Chargers for nine seasons before playing the last two seasons with the New York Jets.

Tomlinson, about to turn 33, says it's time to move on and enjoy his family. He says he's still physically capable of playing but that the game takes a mental toll. Tomlinson was voted NFL MVP in 2006, when he set league single-season records with 31 touchdowns, including 28 rushing, and 186 points. He finishes his career with 13,684 yards, fifth all-time, and 145 touchdowns.

Tomlinson, who was the NFL MVP in 2006 and is the fifth-leading rusher in league history, is retiring after 11 NFL seasons.

The San Diego Chargers said Sunday that Tomlinson would re-sign with the team and announce his retirement. Tomlinson turns 33 on Saturday. Tomlinson was drafted in the first round by San Diego in 2001 and spent the first nine years of his career with the Chargers. He played the last two seasons with the Jets.
