Jets sign Tomlinson to two-year deal - [Full Article]

The Jets have signed running back Ladainian Tomlinson to a two-year contract, adding an aging star to an offense that ranked No. 1 in rushing last season.

Tomlinson's agent, Tom Condon, confirmed the deal Sunday night.

He's expected to back up Shonn Greene, who became the starter after leading-rusher Thomas Jones was released last week.

The New York Daily News reported Tomlinson's two-year deal is worth $5.2 million, according to source, and can escalate to $5.7 million.

"He wanted to go a team that he thought had a chance to compete for the championship," Condon told the AP. "He wanted to go somehwere 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."
