Breaking down Tennessee Titans secondary, a.k.a ‘MMCNB’
2018 Stats: 58 Tackles, 2 Sacks, 4 Pass Breakups, 1 Interception.
Kenny Vaccaro got his opportunity in the most unfortunate of circumstances. Incumbent starting SS Johnathan Cyprien tore his ACL during the Titans’ 2018 training camp. This opened the door for the type of fresh start that the former Texas Longhorn star was seeking.
The Titans signed Vaccaro to a one year “prove it” deal before the 2018 season — and did he ever.
Vaccaro was instantly the type of physical enforcer for the Titans that made opposing receivers fear crossing the middle of the field whenever he was roaming around.
Vaccaro often did things on the field that failed to show up in the stat sheet, but those things did not fail to show up during contract negotiations. The former First round pick signed a four-year deal worth $26 million in March in order to remain in Tennessee.
Vaccaro makes up one half of the best safety tandem in the NFL. He is the enforcer of this very talented secondary, while his partner in crime is the ball-hawking star of the entire defense.
