Tomlinson has left the building*

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Just for old time's sake, I stopped by Minnesota's practice facility Thursday afternoon and stood with the media assembled at the end of the driveway. Call me crazy.

At about 6:10 p.m. ET, free agent running back LaDainian Tomlinson walked out the front door accompanied by a member of the Vikings' personnel department. Tomlinson was carrying a purple Vikings jersey (No. 21, it appeared). He said a quick goodbye to the staffer, jumped in a limo and departed the premises.

ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported Tomlinson has a tentative visit scheduled for Friday with the New York Jets. I can't tell you exactly what is happening at the moment, but it sure appeared as though Tomlinson's visit here has concluded.

*UPDATE: Tomlinson has already told Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated that he enjoyed his visit to Minnesota but is heading to New York for a second visit.

We'll keep you updated.
