49ers re-sign RB Shaun Draughn to a 1-year deal

Mar 2, 2016 at 12:39 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed RB Shaun Draughn to a one-year deal according to Adam Schefter and Draughn's agent, Sean Stellato.


Draughn ended the 2015 season on IR. He suffered a knee injury during the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He was originally signed by the 49ers on November 2, 2015. Draughn had 273 yards on 78 carries with one touchdown this past season with the 49ers. He also had 176 yards on 27 receptions.

After going undrafted in 2011, he spent time with the Washington Redskins (2011), Kansas City Chiefs (2011–2012), Baltimore Ravens (2013), Indianapolis Colts (2013), Chicago Bears (2014), San Diego Chargers (2014), and finally the Cleveland Browns (2014–2015) before being picked up by San Francisco.

Draughn was brought in to help replace RB Carlos Hyde, whose play was limited last season after suffering a broken foot.

Other running backs on the roster include the already mentioned Hyde, Mike Davis, Kendall Gaskins, DuJuan Harris, and Jarryd Hayne. All are signed for the 2016 season. Reggie Bush is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent and the 49ers are not expected to re-sign him.

Some fans are a bit too quick to write off defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, feeling that he is yet another first-round misstep by the San Francisco 49ers. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan still believes in him and feels the defender's injury setbacks can still be overcome. Kinlaw entered the draft as a raw but physically gifted prospect that could develop into a force along the defensive line. That development has been stalled as the 49ers do what they can to manage the second-year player's injury. Kinlaw sustained a knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss the season's final two games. He underwent a procedure after the 2020 season and then had what was described as a minor procedure to reduce swelling in the knee later in

San Francisco initially claimed Harris (5-11, 200) off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens on August 17. He landed on injured reserve on September 1 due to a hamstring injury. The 26-year-old cornerback has recorded 50 tackles, four passes defensed, and a forced fumble through his three NFL seasons. In addition to the 49ers and Ravens (2020), the fourth-year player spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals, the team that made him a fifth-round draft pick out of Illinois State in 2018, and the Denver Broncos
