Chargers get Ryan Mathews in the fold

Posted by Mike Florio on August 1, 2010 2:22 PM ET'

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier in the day that the Chargers likely would have running back Ryan Mathews under contract by the end of the day.

ESPN's John Clayton and Bill Williamson (who apparently independently got the news at the same time) report that the Chargers have struck a deal with the former Fresno State tailback.

The numbers for Mathews, the twelfth overall pick, will fall between the money paid to 49ers left tackle Anthony Davis at No. 11 and Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham at No. 13.

Either way, it'll be plenty more than the team has offered to receiver Vincent Jackson and left tackle Marcus McNeill.
