Ravens Sign Cornerback Cassius Vaughn


The Ravens have added more depth to their cornerbacks group, as they have signed six-year veteran Cassius Vaughn to a reported one-year contract.

Vaughn, 27, played in 13 games last year for the Detroit Lions, including five starts, and made 18 tackles, five pass defenses and two interceptions.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pounder was an unrestricted free agent who hadn't been signed yet this offseason. The Ravens are beyond the point of free-agents signings counting against the compensatory pick formula.

Vaughn was an undrafted rookie free agent out of Ole Miss in 2010. He spent his first two years with the Denver Broncos, then third and fourth seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. The Ravens are his fourth team in six seasons.

His best season came in 2012, when he started a career-high 11 games for the Colts and racked up 66 tackles, nine pass defenses and one interception.

Baltimore already brought in cornerback help by signing Kyle Arrington two weeks ago. The Ravens were reminded last year, however, that you can never have too many cornerbacks.

Vaughn will compete with Arrington, Rashaan Melvin, Tray Walker, Asa Jackson and others for snaps behind starters Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb.
