Tomlinson to Lions? Probably not

INDIANAPOLIS — Coach Jim Schwartz and the Lions are looking under every rock, exploring every possibility, to improve the rebuilding team.

There’s not one position that they are keying in on, there are several. That includes running back.

LaDainian Tomlinson, who was just released by the San Diego Chargers, will be a consideration.

“We’re looking at every way we can to improve the team. I don’t think we make any decisions and blanketly say, ‘No, we’re not interested.’ Every player has something they bring, If they can help us win we’ll look at just about everything,’’ Schwartz said today (Thursday) at the opening day of the NFL Combine.

The coach said he has a tremendous amount of respect for Tomlinson who he faced regularly as defensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans.

It makes for a good fairy tale, but you would think that Tomlinson would want to go to a contender, not a rebuilder.
