Ronnie Brown Signs 1-Year Deal With San Diego Chargers

The San Diego Chargers have bolstered the backfield with the signing of running back Ronnie Brown to the team, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. Brown joins a Chargers backfield that already includes starter Ryan Mathews, Jacob Hester and new addition Le'Ron McClain from the Chiefs. Mike Tolbert left this offseason.

Florio writes, "It's a one-year deal for a guy who languished on the free-agent market. Though on the wrong side of 30, Brown never has been a workhorse back, which means that the tires likely still have some tread. The decision to join the Chargers seems odd, given that the Chargers plan to use Mathews extensively. Barring injury, Brown could get the same limited reps that he received in 2011, when he served as the understudy to LeSean McCoy."

Brown ran 42 times for 136 yards and 1 touchdown last season in his only season with the Eagles. He will turn 31 during the 2012 NFL season.
