LaDainian Tomlinson has signed a two year deal worth $5.1 million with an escalator that could boost it to $5.6 million with the New York Jets.

"He wanted to go to a team that he thought had a chance to compete for the championship," Condon told the AP. "He wanted to go somewhere where he had a chance to have a significant role, and so with the Jets he also was going to be very familiar with the offensive system."

Last year, Tomlinson recorded 223 rushes, for 730 yards, and 12 touchdowns.
