Argos agree to terms with Grey Cup game-changer Cassius Vaughn

Toronto has agreed to terms on a two-year deal with defensive back Cassius Vaughn, per sources.

The 30-year-old had a 109-yard fumble return for a touchdown that was a key play in the Argos 2017 Grey Cup victory.

Vaughn played in 16 games making 32 tackles, five interceptions and one defensive touchdown during the regular season for Toronto. He made four tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery in two Argonauts playoff games. His first CFL season was in Hamilton where he played nine games and recorded 26 tackles. The Ticats released him before training camp in 2017.

After going unselected in the 2010 NFL draft, Vaughn signed with Denver. He spent time with the Broncos, Colts, Lions, Ravens and Chargers over six NFL seasons making 143 tackles, 25 knockdowns, seven interceptions, scoring two touchdowns and forcing one fumble.

    Good news….welcome back Cassius. Class individual

  2. Cassius was a key component of the defensive unit last season and it will be great to have him back in double blue throughout 2018.

  3. Great News. That play will go down in Argo history as one of the best!!! What a game changer!!!

  4. Double blue through and through // February 12, 2018 at 9:55 pm //

    Great to have him back! Our Secondary was generally pretty poor last year – Vaughan was a bright spot. He’ll bring a solid veteran presence to this year’s unit. Hopefully we’re able to get White and Gabriel resigned!
