The new and controversial Los Angeles Chargers haven’t played a game in their new town yet, but they are already trying to interest possible fans with news of player signings.

The team has announced the signings of receivers Da’Ron Brown and Jamaal Jones to reserve/future contracts.

Brown was chosen by the Kansas City Chiefs in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL draft out of Northern Illinois. He caught seven passes for 67 yards and one touchdown in the 2015 preseason and spent the entire season on the Chiefs practice squad.

Brown caught five passes for 39 yards for the Chiefs in the 2016 preseason before being waived. The 6-foot, 199-pound Brown was on the New England Patriots, New York Giants and Miami Dolphins practice squads in 2016.

Jones signed with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent after being bypassed in the 2016 draft following a college career at Montana. He was injured early in training camp, placed on the reserve-injured list and waived later in August.
