Ravens sign Shaun Draughn

The Ravens brought back wide receiver Tandon Doss earlier this week to help replace Jacoby Jones after Jones sprained his knee against the Broncos last Thursday night.

On Wednesday, they signed a player who might be able to help them fill in for Jones on special teams. The Ravens announced that running back Shaun Draughn has agreed to a contract with the team. A corresponding move to create room on the roster hasn’t been announced.

Draughn played all 16 games for the Chiefs last season and averaged 23.3 yards on 23 kickoff returns.

“I’m happy to be part of this organization,” Draughn said in the release announcing the move. “It’s basically the same role I had last year with Kansas City.”

Draughn’s addition gives the Ravens three running backs on their 53-man roster. While he gained 233 yards and scored twice on the ground for the Chiefs last season, it’s unlikely that he’ll take any playing time away from Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce unless there’s an injury.

    They are going to need 3 RB’s this Sunday when they face the best “D” line in the NFL.

    Watching these Super Bowl teams deal with defections, injuries, and bad coaching sure does make you wonder if it is even possible for a team to win back to back championships ever again.

    he is an OK back. I mean, he really isn’t much of a pass blocker, doesn’t have very good speed or quickness, or strength, and he made chief fans angry every time the inept staff ran him back there to return kicks.

    good teammate though. at least, nothing has ever been said otherwise.

    Ozzie=Genius. Steelers’ fans will look at this day as the beginning of their long national nightmare.

    Neither flacco nor haubaugh gas ever lost to cleveland, even with that great defensive line.

    Smart steelers fans, if there are any, are being quiet. You are playing for the number one draft pick. By the time this year is over, you will need a new qb.

    Great return man that fits the Raven’s special teams unit perfectly. His specialty is avoiding hits by his own teammates.
