Chargers Sign Donald Brown

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.

Brown will join Danny Woodhead and Ryan Mathews in the Chargers’ backfield. He would be a great complement to Woodhead if Mathews injury concerns force Woodhead into an every down role.
