Safety Chip Vaughn Completes the Eagles Practice Squad

After ending the roster cut period with only three safeties left on the team, we all knew it was a matter of time before the Eagles added a fourth. Well, now the time has come. Former Saints safety Chip Vaughn was announced as the final member of the eight-man practice squad today, joining WR Chad Hall, RB Martell Mallett, G/C Dallas Reynolds, C A.Q. Shipley, DT Jeff Owens, TE Garrett Mills and WR Jeremy Williams. The official team website released a short bio of our newest Eagle earlier this evening:

Vaughn, a fourth-round draft choice of New Orleans in 2009, was released by the Saints as part of their final roster cut down on Saturday. He spent his entire rookie season on the Injured Reserve list. The 24-year-old Vaughn (6-2, 221) saw action in all four preseason games for the Saints this summer and contributed 12 tackles.
 
A two-year starter at Wake Forest, Vaughn finished his collegiate career with 257 tackles, three interceptions, 22 passes defensed, one forced fumble and four fumble recoveries. In his senior season of 2008, the Fairfax, VA, native earned first-team All-ACC honors when he had 87 tackles, two fumble recoveries, and two interceptions.
With Dimitri Patterson filling in as the fourth safety on the active roster, it is possible that the Eagles could stick with six cornerbacks and only three safeties for now. Still, knowing this front office, more roster moves are on the horizon. Stay tuned.
