    will be his 4th year in the league, played in 16 games for KC last year averaging 3.3 ypc, and 6.6 ypr. He's 6ft 205 lb's.

    Oooo, impressive. I do like the phonetics of his same though. "Shawn Drawn". Will broadcaster get mixed up if we call a draw to Draughn? I'm sure we'll have to or three more in the battle before all is said and done.

    not sure what people are expecting, the team needs camp bodies and depth, but not a lot of cap space, this was a solid signing and the guy has all the world to try and come in here and outdo the competition. At least it's not another "experienced vet" that's going to cost multi millions every year to come in IF Forte gets hurt and under perform.

    Draughn can also apparently return kicks as well.

    I agree 100% this type of "show me" player is the better way to go as opposed to overpaying for guys like Chester Taylor and Michael Bush.

    All Chester showed me was a guy that was around 2 yrs to long and stole money
    All Marion(Souls savior for backup rb) the Barbarion showed me is that even after years of being a starter he still didn't know when to get out of bounds or take knee.
    All Bush showed me was that he was a backup RB for a reason in Oak, and was WAY overapaid by the Bears.

    Give me a slew of cheap young guys that want to prove themselves over a sle w of vets that are looking to relax after they cash in.

    Exactly. It's the way good teams do business. And it isn't something that a lot of us are used to because we haven't operated like a proper NFL team in a long time.

    We gotta talk about sumpin! It's not our fault the draft is so late this year! I blame Angelo.
