A lot of stuff went down around the AFC West after only one day of free agency. Here’s a round-up of all the news, rumors, and information from around the division.
SAN DIEGO CHARGERS
Signings: RB Donald Brown (three years, $10.5 million with $4 million guaranteed)
Cap Space: $5.8 million (Does not include Brown signing.)
San Diego does not have much salary cap room to be active so it was not a surprise they did not make any big moves. What was a surprise is they used what little room they had on former Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown. Brown, who turns 27 in April, will serve as a backup to Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead.
San Diego is likely to lose Ronnie Brown to free agency and Mathews is a free agent next year but it would seem like the Chargers could get a better third-string option late in the draft or in undrafted free agency. With that said, San Diego has to like their running back depth after the signing.
