The Games Continue

There are now a grand total of two limos sitting in front of Winter Park.  It is not apparent why a second one showed up, but it is a possibility that the Jets sent it in an effort to encourage Tomlinson to hop aboard a flight to New York before making any decisions.

Also, Peter King says that the Jets aren’t the only other team that is showing sudden interest in L.T.  The Eagles and the Saints are thought to be in the running and willing to bring L.T. in for a visit.  As Judd Zulgad (who has done a mighty fine job covering the developments today) points out, this could all be a ploy by agent Tom Condon to drive up the contract price.

Earlier I mentioned that it could be considered a very good sign that Condon was in Minneapolis.  I didn’t realize that Condon was in town already because of the StarCaps trial taking place.  Condon is also the agent of Kevin Williams.

So, the mid-afternoon update sounds a little less promising than what many fans were hoping.  However, as far as anyone knows Tomlinson is still at Winter Park.  Earlier today, Rick Spielman did not sound too concerned about the idea of a deal not being finalized today.

 

(Update:  Judd says L.T. just left Winter Park holding a Vikings jersey in his clutches.  This doesn’t mean anything is done, but one has to wonder if it was a #21 jersey.  And if it was, did it say Tomlinson on the back or Allen (as in Asher)?)

    If the Eagles are actually jumping in at this stage there could be a little tension between Childo and Reid. No more fishing trips for them.

    Guess this means we can’t light the torch and the release the pigeon yet.

    I didnt even think about the number. If Asher would have to change his number, GP is gonna be pissed.
