Former Tennessee Titans safety Kenny Vaccaro has a lot of gas left.
From former Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie Team member in 2013 to current free agent, it’s been quite the ride for Kenny Vaccaro already, and the young man is only 30 years old.
There’s been some debate as to whether or not the six-foot, 214-pound free safety would actually still be on this Tennessee Titans team if not for the wretched and unforgiving salary cap monster. The short answer to that is yes. It’s hard to determine how he’s valued though by the rest of the NFL, and that might be why he isn’t on anyone’s roster at the moment.
He’s been on the open market since March 10th. Why? Could it be that, while he’s talented, he doesn’t do enough of the splash stuff to land him on ESPN’s Top 10 Plays? Let’s be frank. Whether we want to admit it or not, that’s often what fans look for when they grade NFL stars these days.
Vaccaro isn’t really a ball-hawk. He has 11 interceptions on his resume if you include what he has done in the playoffs. He’s never scored on a pick-six. He’s never been voted to the Pro Bowl, nor does he pop off of the screen. If you ever want to know what he’s capable of, however, go back and look at Tennessee’s first game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars last season, one where Vaccaro tallied 11 tackles and a sack.
This guy can ball. He’ll be on an NFL roster in 2020, but one thing that fans might want to make note of is this. This guy is all substance and a little less about flash.
