Donald Brown signing good insurance policy, but questionable use of resources

The Chargers gave Donald Brown a three year deal late Tuesday night as their first move of free agency, and while Brown provides a quality insurance policy for the oft-injured Ryan Mathews, allotting valuable funds to the running back position at this point is questionable. The pressing need for San Diego is at the corner position, and with guys like Aqib Talib and Vontae Davis getting...

Ronnie Brown seals Chargers playoff win with 58-yard TD run (GIF)

The Cincinnati Bengals were a 6.5 point favorite at home in Sunday’s AFC Wild Card game against the San Diego Chargers. So much for that as the Chargers flat out played the Bengals.
