Chargers RB Donald Brown Has Drawn Trade Interest, But Unlikely To Be Dealt


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that NFL teams were calling the Chargers about trading for RB Donald Brown in recent days.

However, the recent foot injury sustained by Branden Oliver is likely to prevent them from trading Brown.

This coincides with what Michael Gehlken of the Union-Tribune mentioned earlier in the day.

Brown, 28, was in the second year of his three-year, $10.5 million contract that included $4 million guaranteed. He was set to make base salaries of $3 million in 2015 and 2016 when the Chargers cut him over a month ago so that they could sign OL Michael Ola to their active roster.

It’s unlikely that the Chargers would have received any more than a conditional late-round pick for him.

Last year, Brown appeared in 13 games for the Chargers and ran for 223 yards on 85 carries (2.6 YPC) to go along with 29 receptions for 211 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
