He could be great in the box and slot cover. He's a keeper.

Re: Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro hasn't met any of his goals yet

I'm kind of in a quandary with what to do with Vaccaro. I like him... Not love him.

Are Vonn Bell and Marcus Williams the safety tandem of the future? From what we're hearing out of OTA's and mini-camp Vonn Bell has become the undisputed leader of the secondary.

Vaccaro will be looking for a deal similar to Tony Jefferson's 4 year/$34 million with $19 million guaranteed. I don't feel like he's quite there yet, but I'm not there in the locker room and meeting rooms so I don't know his true value to the team.

I think Vaccaro is probably more talented than the other two but was misused.

This season will be fascinating because Vaccaro will be all over the place more than ever. Beat writers have talked quite a bit during mini-camp about the emphasis being placed on disguising coverages due to the versatility of our safeties. We'll see Vaccaro in the box, in single-high, cover 2, you name it.

At times I've thought going the Deone Bucannon/Shaq Thompson/Mark Barron route with Vaccaro would be best and making him that undersized LB full-time. We're going to learn a lot this season and I'm ready!

I hope they let him walk. Decent in the slot, useless elsewhere.

I hope we keep Vicarro. He reminds me of Sammy Knight.

I know it's off topic but i can't wait to see breaux this season. He seems to improve each year.

I felt Robertson showed very good speed in coverage at linebacker last season...

Particularly remember him covering Ginn in the end zone and Ginn being out but the refs couldn't come up with definitive evidence to overturn (I saw it, he was out) and it was the difference in the game...

Stupar was pretty solid in coverage as well last season as well...

And those two guys may be our reserves...
