Five more Tigers are headed to NFL camps as linebackers Cameron Vaughn and E.J. Kuale, cornerback Ronnie Prude, tight end David Jones, and offensive lineman Nate Livings have all signed free agent contracts.

The five free agent signings join the seven Tigers who were drafted in the NFL Draft over the weekend. LSU now has 12 of its 21 seniors from the 2005 squad on its way to NFL camps.


Jones and Livings will join second round draft pick Andrew Whitworth and seventh round selection Bennie Brazell in Cincinnati with the Bengals, while Prude is going to Baltimore, Kuale to the Saints and Vaughn to Denver.
