The Chargers have agreed to sign Donald Brown, tweets Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The deal is similar to the one signed by Toby Gerhart earlier today. It’s a three-year pact worth $10.5MM with $4MM guaranteed, a source tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk (on Twitter).
Brown is cashing in coming off his best season as a pro, setting career highs in yards per carry and rushing touchdowns. Brown salvaged the Colts’ running game after Trent Richardson struggled to fit in to the team’s game plan.
