Saints Worked Out RBs Khiry Robinson & Shaun Draughn


Nick Underhill of the Advocate reports that the Saints brought in free agent RB Khiry Robinson for a workout on Monday.

  • Aaron Wilson adds that veteran RB Shaun Draughn also tried out for the Saints on Monday.

Robinson tried out for the Jaguars and Jets this summer but neither offered him a contract.

Robinson, 27, wound up signing on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of West Texas A&M back in 2013. He managed to make the team’s 53-man roster in all three years with the Saints.

The Jets ultimately signed him to a one-year, $1.175 million contract as a free agent last year. However, he was waived with an injury designation coming out of the preseason.

New York later signed him to a two-year, $1,950,000 deal and he was set to make a base salary of $775,000 in 2017 when the team cut him loose this past March.

In 2016, Robinson appeared in one game and ran for 22 yards on eight carries (2.8 YPC) and no touchdowns.

Draughn, 29, 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 on with the 49ers during the 2015 season, but wound up being placed on season-ending injured reserve in December. The 49ers did, however, bring Draughn back on a one-year contract last year.

Draughn signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Giants this past March but was released coming out of the preseason.

In 2016, Draughn appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and rushed for 196 yards on 74 carries (2.6 YPC) to go along with 29 receptions for 263 yards receiving and six total touchdowns.
