MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — LaDainian Tomlinson is coming to Minnesota for a visit, and the Vikings believe he’d be a good fit.

Tomlinson is scheduled to meet with coach Brad Childress and other members of the organization on Thursday. The 2006 NFL MVP was released by the San Diego Chargers last month.

Tomlinson is coming off the least-productive season of his nine-year career. Childress spoke to reporters Wednesday about wanting “to see where his mind is at.”

The coach says he assumes Tomlinson realizes he’d be a backup to All-Pro Adrian Peterson.

The Vikings have been looking for another running back since Chester Taylor signed with the Chicago Bears.
