Bears Sign Shaun Draughn

1:39pm: The team has officially announced its signing of Draughn, via Twitter.

1:14pm: The Bears are signing free agent running back Shaun Draughn, tweets Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, citing agent Sean Stellato. It’ll be a one-year contract for the former Chief and Raven.

Draughn saw his most significant NFL action in 2012 in Kansas City, accumulating 233 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns on 59 carries for the Chiefs. The 26-year-old also caught 24 balls out of the backfield for 158 yards and returned 23 kicks for the team that season. However, he didn’t play much of a role for the Ravens last year, and was cut by the club in October. Draughn caught on briefly with the Colts before hitting the free agent market again.

For the Bears, Draughn figures to be a depth piece with a chance to earn a spot on the roster.
