      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Ravens sign RB Shaun Draughn for returns

79 posts in this topic

I have no idea who this guy is.   But if he is being signed for returns then that means Doss is there for either WR depth or to take the #3 spot from Stokley.

This is a guy who looked decent given very limited playing opportunities. I don't see him playing outside of special teams, though.

Decent return guy for sure, Have to have someone back there other then Webb. Rainey is a better returner though imo .. oh well, lol.

Don't know who goes. We're back to having 7 WRs. I doubt we cut Trawick since 8 in the secondary would be dangerously low. The move makes sense, but not sure how Doss fits in now.

Wonder who gets cut for him, I had assumed Tandon would do the returns

I guess they signed Doss to be a receiver first. If they wanted to be fair they should cut the safety that hurt Jones.

Aaron Wilson ‏@RavensInsider 8m

Ravens have signed shaun draughn for returns says he's excited for opportunity

 

Personally, I like this signing.

 

 

Let me be the First to say probably a bit late though.

 

Really, REALLY,  so remind me why we got rid of Rainey.

 

Anybody with half a brain about football would know you need more than 2 RB in the first place. Let alone, to let a Great RB go ( Rainey ).  Rainey is a gem and there is No Excuse to let him go in the first place.

 

But i see how this Front Office is panning out with Resigning Doss anyways.  Wake up, im soooo sick of people saying Ozzie can do no wrong, because there is plenty that has been done wrong this yr alone.  I understand that we were hit hard with injuries but some these injuries happened a few months ago, that is plenty of time to find a replacement but i just dont get how some of these players still have jobs and others our thrown out when you see how good they are.  

 

Its Pride and Stubborness.

 

 

Oh side note,   Harbs can you please call a time out once and a while.  We dont get roll overs timeouts for the next game. No point of not using them when our Defense clearly needs a rest and it would help stop the no huddle.

I think they still like him but it's possible. He could go through waivers and then down to PS

I don't think Ozzie is completely at fault,I think Harbaugh has been given more rope with who he wants and doesn't want! A lot of this mess is on Harbs not Oz. Stuberness is a great word for Harbaugh,along with prideful,and untrusting!!

Ozzie is the man in all things football....


except for WR!

He just can't seem to figure this aspect of the game out. Of course folks will post up about Torrey Smith and what an amazing find. Blind squirrel and a nut. Paying Boldin the 6 mil would have kept Joe with two solid targets in Pitta and Boldin. No, Oz can not predict the future so he had no way of knowing about Pitta's future. He did see the lack of quality behind Smith and cut Boldin for the money aspect. Oz was probably thinking he was sitting pretty with the WR corps that we had. I am praying that Brown works out, if he doesn't Joe is going to have a rough season.

Lol at the Rainey complaints. Geez. I loved the guy and even I don't complain about him.

Cool signing. Let's hope he can give us some return potential.

This is a good sign for special teams! He will return kicks,and Doss will return punts. Do you know what Drauhn's 40 time is?

 

He ran a 4.73 at combine and 4.62 at his pro day.

No one is saying that Ozzie does no wrong. We simply recognize him as one of the best GMs in the game. We just won a Super Bowl and are one of the most consistent teams of the last decade. Would you rather have a team like the Raiders? You seem angry for no reason.

These guys constantly bashing Ozzie are getting a bit annoying. How many more times does he have to make a fool out of you for second guessing him before the whining stops?

I'm not sure what defines a good or a bad kick returner, but here are his stats from last year w/KC:

 

23 returns for 537 yards, averaging 23.3 yards per return.  Out of those he went 20+ 19 times, his long was 41 yards, no scores, and he had 1 fumble.

Better than Webb or Pierce getting injured lol. Doss is an underwhelming returner also. I would've rather had a speedy small guy like Phillip Livas.

his 40 time is almost 4.8 seconds... i'm confused, how is that good for covering ground on special teams... don't we have a TE that can run faster than him?

We heard that a few years ago as well, when we let Mason, Heap, Gregg and JJ go...it would be wise to wait til after the season before bashing him

Living in Kansas (Chiefs viewing area) this guy sucks, I did not ever see anything that made him signable or a good KR etc.

 

Confused by this, wonder who was cut.
