Tomlinson Willing to Accept Reduced Role in '11

New York Jets running back LaDanian Tomlinson is willing to accept a reduced role in 2011, reports Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Tomlinson is also pondering retirement.

"To be in limbo… sometimes, I just want to say, 'You know what? I’m just going to retire'", Tomlinson told Mehta at a fundraiser for "Project 21".

"It’s kind of a messed up feeling to be in, because I feel like we had a great season," said Tomlinson. "Things went well. But here there’s questions about whether I’m going to come back (with the one) year that I have left (on my contract). So who knows."

Tomlinson led the Jets with 914 yards and six touchdowns on the ground, but did not top 50 yards in a game after Week 10. Tomlinson added 52 receptions for 368 yards as a receiver out of the backfield in regular season, and ranked second on the team with 141 yards with a team-high 2 rushing touchdowns in three post-season games.

Tomlinson turns 32 in June, and the future Hall of Famer is due a $2.425 million base salary next season, with an additional $500,000 available in per game roster bonuses.
