The San Diego Chargers have made it known that theyíd add to their backfield at some point.

Friday became the time. ESPNís Adam Schefter reports the Chargers have agreed to terms with former Miami standout running back Ronnie Brown on a one-year deal.

Brown, 30, will be given a chance to be a backup to Ryan Mathews, who the team wants to be a workhorse. Brown is clearly nearing the end of his career.

The 6-foot, 230-pound Brown had 136 yards on 42 carries for the Eagles last season. He had 734 yards for Miami in 2010.

The Chargers are looking for a reliable backup. If Brown canít hack the job, the Chargers feel good about Curtis Brinkley and seventh-round pick Edwin Baker. Also, new fullback LeíRon McClain will be given a chance to carry the ball more than he has in recent seasons.

The Chargers are trying to replace the powerful Mike Tolbert, who signed with Carolina this offseason. Brown likely wonít be able to carry Tolbertís load, but as a group the Chargers have plenty of options behind Mathews.

Not a bad pick up for them. Woulda been funny had they signed LT instead.

Pretty good backup imo.

If he has much left, he could end up stealing matthews #1 spot.
