The Ravens signed ex-Chiefs running back Shaun Draughn as a returner and backup running back Wednesday.

The Chiefs released Draughn on Aug. 31 during their final round of cuts prior to the regular season. He rushed for 223 yards and two touchdowns last season, while catching 24 passes for 158 yards.

“He’s been a good special teams player, he’s been a good kickoff returner, he’s been a good running back,’’ said Ravens coach John Harbaugh. “He played against us last year in Kansas City and played very well.”

Draughn originally signed with the Redskins after being undrafted in 2011 out of the University of North Carolina. The Redskins cut Draughn prior to the 2011 season. The Chiefs signed him to their practice squad that year, before he worked his way onto the 53-man roster last season.
