Jaguars sign running back Shaun Chapas to practice squad

Posted Nov 26, 2013

The Jacksonville Jaguars today signed first-year running back Shaun Chapas to the practice squad.

The Jacksonville Jaguars today signed first-year running back Shaun Chapas to the practice squad, the club announced.  Chapas played at The Bolles School in Jacksonville.

Chapas, 6-2, 244, was originally a seventh-round draft pick in 2011 of the Dallas Cowboys where he spent the majority of the season on the club’s practice squad.  He played in three games as a rookie and had one reception for nine yards.  Chapas was signed by the Detroit Lions following the 2012 preseason and played in three games with one start for the Lions.  He spent the 2013 preseason with the Lions before he was waived on final cuts and signed back to the practice squad where he stayed for the first six weeks of this season.

A native of St. Augustine, Chapas played collegiately at Georgia, where he had 15 carries for 44 yards and five catches for 29 yards and two touchdowns as a senior.  He started seven of 12 games as a junior and totaled one rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown while also playing special teams.  Despite missing his senior season of high school with a knee injury, Chapas was still rated the eighth-best fullback in the nation.  He led the school to a Class-AA state title as a junior while scoring nine touchdowns.
