Broncos Sign Safety Vickiel Vaughn

The Denver Broncos on Sunday signed free-agent safety Vickiel Vaughn, Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Vaughn (6-foot-0, 213 pounds) is a second-year safety who competed in the Broncos' 2008 offseason program before he was waived on June 13. He was signed by Denver to a future contract on Dec. 31.

Vaughn, who has yet to appear in a regular-season game during his NFL career, entered the league with San Francisco as a seventh-round pick (254th overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft from the University of Arkansas. He spent his rookie year on injured reserve (finger) before he was allocated to NFL Europa for its 2007 season, seeing action in six games for the Berlin Thunder.

The safety competed in the 49ers' 2007 training camp before spending that regular season out of the NFL.

At Arkansas, Vaughn appeared in 49 career games (34 starts) and finished his collegiate career with 175 tackles (118 solo) and seven interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns. He ranked second on the Razorbacks in tackles (83) and led the team in interceptions (4) as a senior.

Vaughn, who attended Plano West High School in Plano, Texas, was born on Oct. 24, 1983.
