Saints Sign Draft Picks Morstead and Vaughn

The Saints have agreed to contract terms with draft picks Chip Vaughn and Thomas Morstead. The agreement on Thursday came as players reported to training camp for conditioning tests and meetings.

Vaughn, a safety from Wake Forest, was one of New Orleans’ two fourth-round draft choices. Morstead, a punter from Southern Methodist, was taken in the fifth round after the Saints traded up to take him by offering their seventh round pick in 2009 and fifth-rounder in 2010 to Philadelphia.

The Saints were still trying to sign first-round draft pick Malcolm Jenkins, a cornerback out of Ohio State who was selected 14th overall.
