KENNY VACCARO RUMORS

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. However, this doesn’t mean that an impact can’t be made by one...

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. Against the Atlanta Falcons in Week One, on fourth and goal with the game on the line, Vaccaro lined up on Tony Gonzalez in the slot with New Orleans in an amoeba defense. Vaccaro chipped Gonzalez at the line and broke up Matt Ryan’s pass to him in the middle of the field, deflecting...

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...

New Orleans Saints: Defense shines as Saints top Falcons

The New Orleans Saints opened their season the way they wanted with a 23-17 win over the hated Atlanta Falcons moving their one sided record against the Falcons in the Sean Payton-Drew Brees era to 12-3. The combined 40 points between the teams was a little lower than many people expected from two explosive offenses. However, surprisingly, this game was dominated by defense; and...

Saints rookie Kenny Vaccaro gets confused for Colin Kaepernick

New Orleans Saints rookie first round pick Kenny Vaccaro was walking around in New Orleans and multiple people confused him for Colin Kaepernick. It’s an easy mistake to make since the two do look alike, but it’s too bad for Vaccaro. Hopefully once he starts playing for the Saints this won’t happen anymore. Good for Vaccaro though not taking it too personally and being a good...

Kenny Vaccaro (Photo credit: Stacy Revere/Getty Images) With the New Orleans Saints’ OTAs getting underway last week, the Saints begin their march to what they hope is another Super Bowl title. And this offseason is the first one since their last Super Bowl that isn’t laden with off the field distractions, contract impasses, or labor disputes. One can go as far as to say things...

Saints Nation: Optimum Scouting on Kenny Vaccaro

I caught up with Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting over the weekend to get his view of the Saints' first round pick and felt it was very valuable feedback to share. Optimum Scouting is one of the most popular sites on the Bloguin Network and is worth frequent visitation during draft season in particular. They are a worthwile follow on twitter, as well. It's also worth quickly...
