San Diego Chargers re-sign RB Ronnie Brown to one-year deal

Jason Miller

Veteran running back Ronnie Brown has been re-signed by the Chargers and would seem to fill the remaining hole at that position.

After signing Danny Woodhead this morning, the San Diego Chargers remained focused on the running back position as they agreed to terms on a one-year deal with veteran Ronnie Brown. A nine-year pro, Brown spent 2012 as the primary third down back for the Chargers offense. With Woodhead on board, it seems unlikely that Brown will remain the team's primary anything.

Brown's age, position on the depth chart and the fact that he signed on for only one season all point to this as a security signing against training camp injuries. Brown was less than effective when facing base defenses in 2012 and the former Patriot, Woodhead, is the superior receiver out of the backfield. He is, however, quality veteran depth at a position that takes a physical toll on those who play it.

Brown is the fourth Charger to be re-signed by the Chargers this week, but is the first that isn't primarily (or entirely) a special teams performer. The other three were of course kicker Nick Novak, long-snapper Mike Windt and return specialist Richard Goodman.
