Bio

The Chargers made a key addition to their offensive backfield in March when they signed Brown, a first-round pick of the Indianapolis Colts in 2009.

Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco and Brown have a history together as the Bolts’ GM was a key member of the Colts’ front office when they selected Brown with the 27th overall pick out of Connecticut in 2009.

Over the first five seasons of his career, Brown carried the ball 551 times for 2,377 yards and 17 touchdowns. He averaged 4.3 yards per carry and is very secure with the football, having only two career fumbles, both of which were recovered by the offense. Brown is also a weapon in the passing game, with 83 career receptions for 767 yards and two touchdowns.

Brown joins the Chargers following one of his best seasons. He averaged a career-high 5.3 yards per carry and scored a career-high six rushing touchdowns for the Colts in 2013. He also logged 102 yards of total offense and scored a pair of touchdowns in the Colts’ thrilling 45-44 come-from-behind win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2013 AFC Wild Card Playoffs.

A native of Red Bank, New Jersey, Brown made himself eligible for the 2009 NFL Draft after leading the nation with 2,083 rushing yards with 18 touchdowns as a junior for the Huskies in 2008.

Brown enjoys playing golf and participating in numerous outdoor activities. He works extremely hard to maintain his conditioning and closely watches everything he eats, not an easy task considering Brown’s wife, Mallory, owned a bakery in Indianapolis called Sugar Coated Indy. Mallory graduated from James Madison University in 2008 and the couple married in 2012. They have one child, a son named Hudson. They also have two Bernese Mountain Dogs.
