KENNY VACCARO RUMORS

Saints DB Kenny Vaccaro didn’t realize Adderall was banned

Every NFL player is given an updated list of banned substances prior to the start of offseason. This makes sure each player knows just what is banned from consumption. The list is extensive, detailed, and can be tedious to read. That being said, it is every player’s responsibility to know what’s on the list and what he can or can not take. At the very least, a player can use...

New Orleans Saints: Defense all bark, no bite

With all the hype surrounding the New Orleans Saints in the offseason, the result of this past week’s game against the division rival Atlanta Falcons was truly disappointing. Though the lasting image from the game is Marques Colston fumbling late in overtime to set up Matt Bryant for a game winning field goal, the real story was the nonexistent defense. The Falcons put up a whopping...

New Orleans Saints: Why to watch Vinnie Sunseri

Last season, the New Orleans Saints’ rookie class was one of the best since 2006 producing starters Kenny Vaccaro, Terron Armstead, Kenny Stills, and John Jenkins. This is season, with the exception of Brandin Cooks and possibly Stanley Jean-Baptiste, the rookie class won’t feature as many bona fide starters.

Kenny Vaccaro makes New Orleans Saints defense extra scary

Kenny Vaccaro is a monster. He’s the football version of Pierre The Pelican, before the poor bird had beak surgery right around the NBA All-Star break. That Pierre was fierce-looking. He ate people! OK, he didn’t actually; thank heavens! But the point remains, Pierre pre-surgery was scary. Vaccaro proved to be that to opposing offensive players last season. In 14 games in 2013...

Saints Nation: How Does Kenny Vaccaro Stack Up Against Other 1st Round Picks?

Some of you may remember that once each week I write for the football site This Given Sunday. My task is simple, rank the first round draft picks 1 through 32, week to week, based on how they perform. You probably won't be surprised to know that through twelve weeks, the Saints made what I consider an excellent draft choice in Kenny Vaccaro. Indeed, he ranks sixth in my rankings...
