Chargers to retire LaDainian Tomlinson's number, inducting him into team Hall of Fame

San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson will have his No. 21 jersey retired and will be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame this year. The ceremony will take place Nov. 22 at halftime of the Chargers-Kansas City Chiefs game in a Sunday night game. Tomlinson will become only the fourth player to have his number retired by the organization, joining Lance Alworth (19), Dan Fouts (14) and the late Junior Seau (55) as the only players to receive the team’s highest honor.  In addition to his number being raised to the rafters at Qualcomm Stadium, Tomlinson will also become the 38th member enshrined in the Chargers Hall of Fame and have his name forever placed in the team’s Ring of Honor. Tomlinson retired from the NFL in 2012 as the league’s fifth all-time leading rusher (13,684 career yards) and its second-most prolific scorer (145 career rushing touchdowns.
