LaDainian Tomlinson, who was the NFL MVP in 2006 and is the fifth-leading rusher in league history, is retiring after 11 NFL seasons.

The San Diego Chargers said Sunday that Tomlinson would re-sign with the team and announce his retirement. Tomlinson turns 33 on Saturday.

He played the last two seasons with the Jets.

Tomlinson was drafted in the first round by San Diego in 2001 and spent the first nine years of his career with the Chargers.
