ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Chargers have agreed to terms with former Miami standout running back Ronnie Brown on a one-year deal.
Brown, 30, will be given a chance to be a backup to Ryan Mathews, who the team wants to be a workhorse. Brown is clearly nearing the end of his career.
The Chargers said they planned to add a veteran RB at some point after evaluating the RBs on the roster. Brown isn't much of a threat to Mathews's touches but he'll provide some insurance in case Mathews can't stay healthy.
