Could the New Orleans Saints soon lose a player to an AFC East Division team?


Of course, with Marcus Williams and Vonn Bell returning at the safety position next season, and with the offseason signing of former Carolina Panthers safety Kurt Coleman, many think Vaccaro will be elsewhere in 2018.

A native of Brownwood, Texas, Vaccaro, who was the 15th-overall pick out of Texas by the Saints in the 2013 NFL Draft, will enter his sixth season in the NFL in 2018.

The 6-foot, 214-pound Vaccaro played in 14 games, all as a starter, at safety, as a rookie in 2013, while compiling 62 tackles, including one sack and one interception.

In 2014, Vaccaro slipped just a little, generating 51 tackles, to go along with one sacks, and one interception in 15 games, including 14 as a starter.

During 2015, a season in which Vaccaro rebounded, he totaled 71 tackles and 3 sacks, both career-highs, while playing in all 16 games, all as a starter.

After accumulating 68 tackles and two interceptions in 2016, Vaccaro generated 60 tackles and three interceptions in 12 games with the Saints last season.

In 5 seasons in the NFL, all with the Saints, Vaccaro has appeared in 68 games, including 67 as a starter, accumulating 283 tackles, 7.5 sacks, and 8 interceptions.
