ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Lions have signed cornerback Cassius Vaughn to a one-year contract.

The move was announced Monday when the team began offseason workouts with first-year coach Jim Caldwell.

Vaughn played 16 games for Indianapolis last season, including four starts. The 5-foot-11, 199-pound Vaughn had a career-high three interceptions, tripling his career total. He started 11 games for the Colts in 2012.

Vaughn earned a spot in the NFL with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted rookie from Mississippi. He started in three of 22 games in Denver during the 2010 and 2011 seasons.
