Colts cornerback Cassius Vaughn made the easy play, but he made a bunch of other ones too, and it earned him AFC defensive player of the week honors.

Vaughn’s interception return for a touchdown was made easy for him by Titans quarterback Jake Locker, but Vaughn also had eight tackles and three passes defensed in the Colts’ 27-23 win.

Vaughn becomes the second cast-off corner to win the award for the Colts this year, after Darius Butler won it in Week 10.

Vaughn was acquired in a preseason trade with the Broncos for Chris Gronkowski. The Colts signed Butler in September after he was released by the Panthers.

  1. Ryan Grigson should win the Executive of the Year award for the job he’s done putting together a competitive team with a bunch of rookies and castoffs and retaining the right guys (Wayne, Mathis) from last year’s debacle.

  2. i really liked both him and sydquan thompson when they were on the broncos (thompson more since vaughn got burnt a few times). crazy how quickly things can change and they pretty much threw vaughn away to eventually cut drayton florence, but i’m glad he’s doing well

    until he plays the broncos

  3. He still doesn’t deserve to wear #32. Good call Irsay!

    Executive of the year will be John Elway for signing the NFL MVP to a free agent contract.
