Earlier today we posted a blog entry explaining a few thoughts about the Vikings task of replacing RB Chester Taylor. One of the names mentioned in those thoughts – RB LaDainian Tomlinson – is the subject of a report that will likely catch the attention of Vikings fans.
Jim Trotter of SI.com reported midway through Tuesday afternoon that Tomlinson, a 5-time Pro Bowler and 1-time NFL MVP, will visit the Vikings at Winter Park on Thursday. A versatile and experienced RB, Tomlinson has the skill set that would make him a fitting complement to starter Adrian Peterson.
We have not confirmed this report but wanted to mention it in this space, especially because we addressed the topic of replacing Taylor earlier today. We’ll provide updates on this issue when they become available to us.
