Bio

Brown returned to the Chargers in March, agreeing to a new one-year contract. The ninth-year pro played in 14 games for the Bolts in 2012 and he was utilized primarily for his strength as a third-down back, tying for second on the team with 49 receptions, good for 371 yards.

In 2005, Miami selected Brown with the second overall pick in the NFL Draft. He played six seasons in Miami, rushing for 4,815 yards and 36 touchdowns, while catching 184 passes for 1,491 yards and a pair of scores. He still ranks third on the Dolphins’ all-time list for rushing yards and touchdowns, and is tied with Hall of Fame running back Larry Csonka for the second-most 100-yard rushing games in team history. From 2005-07, Brown averaged better than 4.0 yards per carry for the Dolphins, becoming the team’s first back to do so for three-straight seasons since 1983-85. He posted his only 1,000-yard season in 2006, rushing for 1,008 yards, and he was selected for the Pro Bowl in 2008 after scoring a career-high 10 touchdowns.    

A native of Cartersville, Ga., Brown was the state’s 2A Player of the Year in football as a senior at Cartersville High. He also was a stellar baseball player who was drafted by Major League Baseball’s Seattle Mariners in the 50th round of the 2000 draft. Brown bypassed the major leagues to attend Auburn where he became a two-time All-SEC pick.

In Sept. 2010, Brown started the Ronnie Brown Project and a campaign entitled “23 Ways to Stop Youth Violence.” It was a project with one main goal: to stop violence in schools. His target was middle and high school students in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties in Florida, and Brown worked closely with the Jason Taylor Foundation, Teen Truth Live and the Miami-Dade Violence Intervention Project to make the program a success.      

Brown was a communications major at Auburn. During his junior year, he interned at the Auburn Network, editing and producing highlight films. Brown and his wife, Taylor, his college sweetheart, still attend Auburn football games when the schedule permits.           

In March, the couple celebrated the birth of their first child, son Dillon Rhys.      

Brown’s hobbies include traveling, bowling and movies.
