Chargers keep Ronnie Brown

Ronnie Brown will stick around a little longer in San Diego.

The Chargers announced today that Brown has signed a one-year contract.

Brown quietly had a solid season for the Chargers last year, carrying 46 times for 220 yards and adding 49 catches for 371 yards. Although he’s not the every-down back he was early in his career with the Dolphins, his status as both a good receiver out of the backfield and a good blocker who can pick up the blitz makes him a valuable player on passing downs.

At age 31, Brown doesn’t have much time left in the NFL. But the Chargers are giving him a little more time.

    Thats a shame, the Cardinals and the Jets could’ve used him at quarterback.

    Nice glad we kept him.

    He was more valuable than his stats show for us last year and lets be real here… we were kinda desperate at times.

    There are a few occasions he saved us from completely falling apart.

    Reliable dude.

    Its good keeping him around for next season but didnt we just sign Woodhead to be the third-down back?? Other than the additions of Cox and Woodhead, im disappointed

    Poor Ronnie only 500 yds last season. He has gone down hill since he left the Dolphins. His year with the Eagles was a complete mess. Hope this year is better for him, but I doubt it will be, he’s getting old.

    They will need him when Mathews breaks a clavicle pulling up his pants.
