Cleveland Browns Billy Winn Shaun Draughn

Browns promote running back Shaun Draughn from the practice squad after trading defensive lineman Billy Winn to the Colts for a 2017 Conditional Draft Pick

BEREA—The Browns roster carousel continues to spin.

On Friday, the Browns traded defensive lineman Billy Winn to Indianapolis for a conditional 2017 draft pick.

After the move, the Browns added running back Shaun Draughn from the practice squad on Saturday, which clears the way for him to be active for Sunday’s game with the Jets.

Draughn played in 10 games in 2014 (two with Chicago, four with San Diego and four) with the Browns). He carried the ball 10 times for the Chargers for 19 yards, but did not for the Browns. Primarily with the Browns, Draughn was on special teams and returned five kickoffs for 115 yards. He broke his hand in the preseason and was released in the final roster cut downs and re-signed to the practice squad.

Draughn joins Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson Jr. and Robert Turbin on the 53-man roster at running back. Turbin is out with a high ankle sprain for up to a month after being claimed Thursday on waivers from the Seahawks. 


Winn was a sixth-round pick in 2012 and he appeared in 40 games with the Browns, including 18 starts. He totaled 87 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Winn started 10 games as a rookie and had 26 tackles, including a sack.
