Vaughn was released by the Ravens on Tuesday. The Ravens were in need of help at the tight end position, so they decided to release Vaughn to open up a spot on the 53-man roster. Vaughn has been both signed and released by the Ravens twice since May, so he could return to the team before the season comes to a close.
The Ravens have agreed to terms on a contract with cornerback Cassius Vaughn , according to The Baltimore Sun. Vaughn is being signed to a veteran minimum deal. This appears to be a move to add depth to a position that was depleted with injuries a year ago. The Ravens recently signed Kyle Arrington to the secondary as well. With the Lions in 2014, Vaughn started five of the 13 games he appeared in and intercepted two passes.
The Lions will have their probable players Week 6 against the Vikings. Jerome Couplin, Theo Riddick and Cassius Vaughn will all play against Minnesota. Couplin is dealing with a rib injury. Riddick has a hamstring issue, and Vaughn has an ankle injury.
Tight end Joseph Fauria (ankle) and linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) are the lone Lions ruled out for their Sunday game against Minnesota. Neither has practiced this week. Listed as probable are running backs Theo Riddick (hamstring) and Joique Bell (concussion), safety Jerome Couplin (ribs) and cornerback Cassius Vaughn (ankle).
The Lions have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 5 matchup with the Bills: running backs Joique Bell (concussion) and Theo Riddick (hamstring), cornerback Cassius Vaughn (ankle), linebacker Travis Lewis (quad), tight end Joseph Fauria (ankle), defensive end Larry Webster and quarterback Kellen Moore. Bell and Riddick had already been ruled out for the game, leaving the Lions woefully thin at running back behind Reggie Bush. Fauria and Lewis had also been ruled out, while Vaughn was doubtful to play. Calvin Johnson, who was listed as questionable, is active and ready to roll.
