It'll fall to Kenny V deciding to stay with a home-town discount or rolling with Vonn Bell and a draft selection...
Morgan Burnett.

And why on earth would Kenny take less money to stay in New Orleans?

Would Burnett be that much of an upgrade over Vonn Bell, hmm, I don't know...

I'm just curious if the market will develop for Kenny V as he and his agent might hope...

Yes he would.

Morgan is equally as good as Vacarro, however he does the job BETTER and has shown he is a more consistent player AND in deep zones he can be trusted so Marcus isn't out there as your single defender.

As for Vonn, he'll be allowed to be play the 3rd safety role (exit Rapheal Bush) & possibly a better player on the field.

Offer Breaux a vet minimum, let him compete for a roster spot. I don't think he's a lock to make this 2018 team.
Butler will cost too much to be a #3. I would bring Breaux back as well with the lowest tender. Reid is a cancer and would destroy the locker room. We got rid of the bad influences in the past couple of years. No reason to bring in another. Resign Bush and let KV walk if he wants an arm and a leg. I would rather sign Moore, Bush and Breaux for the price it might be for KV. We have bigger needs than a safety that may not even start. Need a WR to go with MT and Ginn. Maybe steal a TE in the draft. Not to mention our O-line.

Vaccaro’s most certainly a goner. He would be a horrible fit in Rod Marinelli’s Tampa 2 scheme, but hey... not our problem.
