Shaun Draughn contract details following 1-year deal

The San Francisco 49ers signed running back Shaun Draughn to a one year deal, and we now have the full contract terms. It is nothing splashy, but considering the work he put in after Carlos Hyde and Reggie Bush got hurt, it's well earned.

Draughn has a $760,000 base salary for the 2016 season. He also received a $25,000 signing bonus. He can earn a $50,000 roster bonus if he makes the 53-man roster for Week 1. There is also a $25,000 workout bonus, and a $50,000 incentive for receptions that is listed as Not Likely To Be Earned.

The deal does not reach the minimum salary benefit due to the total amount of incentives. The benefit is for veteran minimum salary deals in which the incentives do not surpass $80,000. It allows the deal to provide a cap hit for a lower salary.

The 49ers are currently looking at a cap hit of $860,000 for Draughn. The running back depth will feature a significant amount of competition. Carlos Hyde is obviously the front-runner at this point. Draughn will be competing with Mike Davis, DuJuan Harris, and Jarryd Hayne for opportunities. The team has not tendered Kendall Gaskins, but could still end up bringing him back at a minimum deal. And of course, there are rumors the team is interested in De'Anthony Thomas, and there's plenty of cap space and draft picks for running back help.
