49ers Claim TE Je’Ron Hamm Off Waivers From Redskins, Put RB Shaun Draughn On IR


The San Francisco 49ers announced Wednesday that they’ve claimed TE Je’Ron Hamm off of from the Redskins and placed RB Shaun Draughn on season-ending injured reserve.

Hamm, 23, originally signed on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana-Monroe back in May of last year.

He lasted just a few months in New Orleans before he was waived and later signed to the Redskins’ practice squad.

Washington elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract a year ago, but he was once again unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason and was signed to their practice squad.

This season, Hamm has been active for one game, but has yet to record a single statistic.

Draughn, 28, originally signed on with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina back in 2011. He lasted just a few months in Washington before he caught on with a number of teams including the Chiefs, Ravens, Colts, Bears, Chargers, and Browns.

Draughn signed an exclusive rights tender back in March with the Browns, but was unfortunately among their final roster cuts at the start of the season.

He’s been on and off of the 49ers’ active roster in recent months.

This season, Draughn has appeared in 11 games and ran for 273 yards on 78 carries (3.5 YPC) to go along with 27 receptions for 176 yards receiving and one total touchdown.
