LaDainian Tomlinson compounded the New York Jets public troubles this week by shedding new light on the issues between Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes.
During an interview on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” Tomlinson said the tension between the quarterback and receiver was as bad as he’d ever been around.
“You know it was at the point where I think the players could no longer do anything about it,” Tomlinson said on the show, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “There was nothing that the players could do. So when it gets to that point there are certain changes that need to happen.”
The veteran running back is confident the relationship can be repaired, but it may take some soul-searching and require the team to make “tough decisions.”
“I would really have to sit down with them and see if they can co-exist,” said Tomlinson. “I mean that is a decision that I really have to make. And if I really feel like they can’t, then you have to make a move.”
He also took the opportunity to again call out Holmes’ actions following the Jets’ Week 17 loss to the Miami Dolphins in which the team was eliminated from postseason contention.
