Tomlinson pondered joining Broncos

LaDainian Tomlinson announced his retirement with a one-day contract with the San Diego Chargers.

But Tomlinson told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he did consider one team to play for in 2012 - the Denver Broncos.

That's because Tomlinson saw the Broncos add Peyton Manning and he thought it might give him the chance to finally win that elusive Super Bowl ring. Then, he reconsidered.

“That was the only reason I considered Denver,” he said. “At the same time, I thought, ‘How much is a Super Bowl ring really going to do for you at this point?’ Because it’s not with the team I really wanted to do it with.”
