Free-Agent Watch: Cassius Vaughn

Cornerback Cassius Vaughn

2013 stats: 30 tackles, 6 passes defended, 3 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles.

Vaughn, one of the lead jokesters in the locker room, played a number of different roles last season. He was the the fourth cornerback. He started in Greg Toler’s absence because of the Colts’ desire to keep Darius Butler at nickel back. Vaughn was even a healthy inactive.

Vaughn played well at times, getting two interceptions against Tennessee in early December. He also struggled when he started opposite of Vontae Davis. Vaughn ended up falling behind Josh Gordy on the depth chart. He didn’t play in either of the playoffs game against Kansas City or New England.

Prediction: Depending on what happens with Davis and Gordy, Vaughn may end up having to be the team’s fifth cornerback if the Colts re-sign him.
