LaDainian Tomlinson has found a new home.

Tomlinson has agreed to terms with the Jets on a mulityear deal.

Tomlinson's agent, Tom Condon, confirmed the two-year deal Sunday night. FOXSports.com was the first to report the agreement.

Tomlinson visited the Vikings first, then the Jets, who sent him out to dinner with quarterback Mark Sanchez and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer earlier this week.

The running back spent much of his career with Schottenheimer's father Marty in San Diego and the two maintain a close relationship.

"He wanted to go a team that he thought had a chance to compete for the championship," Condon told the AP. "He wanted to go somehwere where he had a chance to have a significant role, and so with the Jets he also was going to be very familiar with the offensive system."

Tomlinson ran for 730 yards last season and scored 12 touchdowns.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
