Kenny Vaccaro expected to leave New Orleans in free agency

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I had high hopes when he was drafted, but has never lived up to expectations. My biggest issue with him has always been how undisciplined he plays. I don't see this creating a big hole in the defence at all. ...

If he doesn't return, I wish him all the best!

Re: Kenny Vaccaro expected to leave New Orleans in free agency

Here's the thing about the recent history of the strong safety position with during Payton's tenure with the Saints...

We spent a second round pick on Roman Harper, an obvious liability in coverage to other teams except the Saints coaches...

SO then we spent a first round pick on Kenny Vaccaro who tested with high benchmarks, but had to medicate to focus and play disciplined...

Now, I could believe that Ireland probably will do a better job selecting a strong safety, but I'm of the belief we'd do better signing a proven free agent...

But I thought the three-safety secondary of Williams-Bell-Bush/Banjo played well enough, and would be better with a better PASS RUSH...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

'bout damn time. He single handedly was the reason for a couple losses.

Edit: What the hell? Why aren’t tweets copying and pasting like they used to? Anyway, they’re basically saying that Vaccaro will not be offered a new deal and he’s moving on.

I don’t don’t doubt KV played to the best of his ability. The problem is his ability.

Re: Kenny Vaccaro expected to leave New Orleans in free agency

Most of us could see this one coming a mile away. For where Kenny was drafted, he has been a very underwhelming player.

Wise move by the Saints FO to let Vacarro walk.
