49ers re-sign Shaun Draughn

The San Francisco 49ers re-signed running back Shaun Draughn to a one-year contract. "Shaun did a heck of a job for us last year despite joining the team in the middle of the season," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement Wednesday. "He certainly earned the respect of everyone in our organization for the way he handled himself, both on and off the field, and we are excited to have him back." Draughn started at running back at the end of the season when Carlos Hyde suffered a stress fracture. Draughn rushed for 263 yards in six games before injuring his knee and missing the final two games. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
