LaDainian Tomlinson to New Orleans Saints?

The National Football Post has revealed a juicy tidbit of rumor news on their website today. 

Sources close to the situation have informed me that the New Orleans Saints are “looking closely” at San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson.  The Saints would have a “high level of interest” if the Chargers were unable to come to terms on a new deal with Tomlinson. 

Ummm...I highly doubt it. 

Ladies and gentleman of the jury, may I present Exhibit A. These National Football Post guys are also the ones who claimed yesterday that Jon Stinchcomb was "very likely" to sign with the Seahawks. We all know how that one turned out. And if we are to believe one of the commenters of said post than we would also know that reporting innacurate rumors is a common occurence for this website. 

You said Jonathan Stinchcomb was close to signing with the Seahawks but his agent Pat Dye says he’s never talked with them. You said T.J Houshmandzadeh was going to resign with the Bengals but he’s in Seattle right now. You said Joe Barry was going to join Jim Mora’s staff last month but it never happened. I’d say your batting average isn’t so good. 

Until it is reported that Tomlinson is actually making a trip to the Big Easy, I refuse to believe this blurb is accurate.
