KENNY VACCARO RUMORS

Why an Undefined Vaccaro isn’t a Bad Thing

When Kenny Vaccaro was drafted 15th overall, most of the fan-base hated the pick. Many, including myself, were crying out for a pass rusher. “How could you pick a safety with Jarvis Jones on the board?” It’s worth pointing out that the much lauded pass rusher has managed only 3 sacks in two seasons in Pittsburgh. Perceptions changed once Vaccaro suited up. The rookie was feisty...

New Orleans Saints: Why to watch Vinnie Sunseri

Defining Kenny Vaccaro’s role makes the New Orleans Saints a top-tier defense

Saints fans fell in love with last year’s first round draft pick Kenny Vaccaro in his very first game.

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...
