LaDainian Tomlinson

A look at some of the NFL's greatest running backs before and after their 30th birthdays, beginning with the recently released LaDainian Tomlinson. In 2006 and 2007, when Tomlinson was 27 and 28, no player accounted for more rushing yards (3,289), touchdowns (49) or yards from scrimmage (4,272). In 2009 at age 30, L.T. rushed for just 730 yards and the five-time Pro Bowler was subsequently released by the Chargers.
