Vaughters, 28, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford back in 2015. However, he was unfortunately among the Packers roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

Vaughters later had brief stints with the Patriots and Chargers before signing on with the Calgary Stampeders for the 2017 season. The Bears signed him to a futures contract in 2019 and he was on and off their practice squad multiple times before settling on their active roster. 

Chicago released Vaughters earlier in the week. 

In 2020, Vaughters appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and recorded 22 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
