FORT WORTH (AP)  LaDainian Tomlinson is enjoying the extended summer break from the rigors of minicamp. After 10 NFL seasons, he has been able to spend more time with family and a nearly year-old son while resting his body.

That doesn’t mean LT hasn’t been with his New York Jets teammates during the NFL lockout. They recently had a pair of minicamp-like sessions on their own, one in California and another in New Jersey.

Tomlinson is back in camp this week at Camp LT, his annual event for kids at TCU, where he was a star running back.

Tomlinson says the Jets workouts helped players get back in the swing of things, and that quarterback Mark Sanchez was like a coach helping install plays they would normally be doing during minicamps.
