Former New Orleans Saints standout linebacker Vaughan Johnson will appear at the Saints Hall of Fame Museum Monday evening from 5:30 p.m.-6:45 p.m. to sign autographs prior to the New Orleans Saints game with the Detroit Lions.

Johnson had played for the USFL Jacksonville Bulls in 1984 and 1985. He was an integral part of four playoff teams with the Saints.
