LaDainian Tomlinson explained on SportsCenter Monday that he didn't make a serious attempt to continue playing because his passion to play is gone.
Tomlinson reportedly "talked with" the Broncos before retiring, but the feeling wasn't necessarily mutual. "I definitely considered it," said LT. "I can't tell you exactly the percentages. But at the end of the day, mentally, I was done with football. And I knew that. But I was holding out hope that the passion would come back, that I would want to play again. But probably right around April, May, I knew that I was done with football."
