Ravens Sign Former Chiefs Running Back


Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Shaun Draughn has landed on the Baltimore Ravens 53-man roster.

Draughn caught on with the Chiefs in October of 2011 after previously spending time with the Washington Redskins. He joined the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of North Caronlina.

As a rookie, Draughn only appeared in one game, but last season he played in all 16. He carried the ball 59 times for 233 yards and two touchdowns along with 24 catches for 156 yards.

Draughn also played a role on special teams for the Chiefs, returning 23 kicks for 537 yards. It’s those skills that the Ravens have told him he will use with his new team.

“They told me I’m a special-teams guy,” Draughn told the Baltimore Sun. “It’s basically the same role I had last year in Kansas City where I came in on third down and just be ready when I’m called.”

After losing out to Cyrus Gray in the battle to serve as one of the backups to Jamaal Charles, Draughn was a casualty of head coach Andy Reid’s final cuts.
