The Indianapolis Colts have signed free agent offensive guard Terran Vaughn and waived-injured outside linebacker Deiontrez Mount. If Mount clears waivers, he will revert to the team's Injured Reserve List.
Mount has been sidelined for the last couple of weeks with a hamstring injury. When it comes to Vaughn, look toward the Colts’ unlucky string of injuries along the offensive line as to why he is now onboard. Interior offensive linemen Ryan Kelly, Brian Schwenke, Joe Haeg, Jack Mewhort and Denzelle Good have all spent time banged-up at one point or another during camp. Kelly is actually expected to miss 6-8 weeks following foot surgery.
Vaughn (6-3, 306, 23) was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Oakland Raiders in 2016. After being waived, he moved onto the Buffalo Bills and spent some time on their practice squad. Vaughn was a 38-game starter at Stephen F. Austin before hitting the pros. After bouncing around SFA’s line early in his collegiate career, he settled in at right guard for the majority of his tenure.
Mount was a sixth-round pick by the Tennessee Titans in 2015 and appeared in four games with them. He was then waived the following preseason and picked up by the Colts. Mount made one appearance with the Colts in 2016 but was primarily on the practice squad.
If Mount hits the Colts’ IR, he will join running backs Christine Michael and Dalton Crossan.
