Chargers Sign Free Agent RB Ronnie Brown
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Chargers say they have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with running back Ronnie Brown.
The 6-foot, 230-pound Brown ran for 136 yards and a touchdown last season while backing up LeSean McCoy with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The No. 2 overall pick in the 2005 NFL draft, Brown spent his first six seasons with the Miami Dolphins.
He ran for 4,815 yards and 36 touchdowns and caught 184 passes for 1,491 yards and two TDs while with Miami.
He ranks third on the Dolphins’ all-time list for rushing yards and touchdowns, and he’s tied with Hall of Fame running back Larry Csonka for the second-most 100-yard rushing games in team history.
