Chargers sign Woodhead, bring back Brown

SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Chargers made deals with two running backs Friday, agreeing to a two-year contract with former New England Patriots Danny Woodhead and a one-year deal to bring back Ronnie Brown.

Woodhead is expected to complement Ryan Mathews, who’s been plagued with injuries and a fumbling problem.

Woodhead was New England’s second-leading rusher with 301 yards and four touchdowns on 76 carries while catching 40 passes for 446 yards and three scores.

He spent two seasons with the New York Jets and three with the Patriots.

Brown played in 14 games for the Bolts last season, starting one. He rushed for 220 yards on 46 carries and tied for second on the team with 49 receptions for 371 yards.
