Shaun Draughn left a good impression on the San Francisco 49ers, so much so that the team has decided to bring him back aboard.


The Niners announced on Wednesday that they have re-signed the running back to a one-year deal.

"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. "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."

San Francisco signed Draughn as a free agent after he was released by the Cleveland Browns in October. He started six games for the 49ers last season and rushed for 263 yards on 76 carries before being placed on injured reserve because of a knee injury.

In limited action with the Niners, Draughn proved to be a serviceable player in the backfield. In his sixth season he likely will be the team's No. 2 running back behind Carlos Hyde.
