Saints ink Vaughn, Morstead

The Saints have inked fourth round pick S Chip Vaughn from Wake Forest and fifth round pick P Thomas Morstead from SMU to their rookie contracts.
This timing is right on schedule as draft picks from around the league officially join their teams before camp opens.
Fourth round pick LB Stanley Arnoux, injured in the Saints' rookie minicamp, will not be signing soon. He'll get under contract later on this season and is not a priority to the Saints to get signed.
That leaves top round pick Malcolm Jenkins unsigned, and it may be days if not weeks before he and many other first round picks are in on time.
As we've noted before, in the last decade, the only Saint first round picks physically in on time for camp and under contract were Ricky Williams and Robert Meachem.
