Chargers, Donald Brown agree to 3-year deal

The Chargers had a productive backfield tandem last year with Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead.

Playing 16 games for the first time in his career, Mathews rushed for a career-high 1,255 yards and six touchdowns. Meanwhile, Woodhead set career highs with 76 receptions, 1,034 yards from scrimmage and eight touchdowns.

In a bit of a surprise, the Chargers signed free-agent running back Donald Brown to a three-year deal worth $10.5 million, of which $4 million is guaranteed, per Michael Gehlken of San Diego Union-Tribune.

By signing (Donald) Brown, it means that Ronnie Brown won't be re-signed and both Mathews and Woodhead are entering the final years of their contracts.

With the Colts last season, Brown emerged as the starter over Trent Richardson and finished the season with 537 rushing yards and a career-high 5.3 yards per carry in addition to 27 receptions for 214 yards and two touchdowns, all of which were career highs.
