Former UR star waiting for lockout to end

ATLEE, VA (WWBT) - The NFL lockout could end any day.  That's great news for former University of Richmond running back Josh Vaughan.

The Hermitage product has been working out in the Richmond area since last season ended.  He hasn't spent too much time paying attention to what's happening with the lockout, because he can't control it.  All he can do, is wait to get the call to report.

In his two years in the NFL, he's been a member of five different NFL teams, but has yet to play in a game.  He's currently a member of the Carolina Panthers, and would report straight to Charlotte after the lockout gets lifted.

Usually, a player like Vaughan catches the eye of coaches during preseason workouts and games because of his short professional resume.  With those limited because of the lockout, Vaughan will have to make an impression fast.  But he feels like he's in the best shape of his life, and believes he can make an opportunity for himself after camp begins.
