Report: LT signs with Jets

Multiple outlets are reporting Sunday afternoon that free agent running back LaDainian Tomlinson will sign with the Jets in the next 24-48 hours. The San Diego Union-Tribune, quoting three sources, is reporting the move is a "done deal." (UPDATE, 6:11 p.m.: ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Tomlinson has signed a two-year deal with New York.) Tomlinson, who was recently released by the Chargers, is a former NFL MVP who struggled in 2009, finishing the season with 730 rushing yards, the lowest total of his nine-year career.

"He had a thing the other day when we over in Port St. Lucie. He wasn't feeling really good, so we had him checked out with the doctor," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said following his team's 6-4 win over the Twins Sunday afternoon at Hammond Stadium.

 

"We wanted to run him through some tests before we get him back on the field. We've been doing that the last couple of days, but with the weekend it kind of slowed things down a little bit. They're all precautionary. He just kind of came in and said, 'It kind of feels like I got hit by a car.' He just got run down and he said he has had this feeling during the winter time so we just want to...
