Kenny Vaccaro visiting Dolphins

One of the safeties caught in a slow-moving free agent market at the position may have a chance to land a job with the Dolphins.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Kenny Vaccaro will visit the Dolphins on Thursday. Vaccaro ranked No. 27 on our list of the top free agents this year and is the top-ranked players unsigned and untagged at this point in the offseason.

Vaccaro was the 15th overall pick of the 2013 draft and spent the last five seasons with the Saints. He was a starter out of the gate and had 60 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three interceptions in his 12 appearances last season. He ended the year on injured reserve with a core muscle injury, but called himself healthy in early March.

The Dolphins have Reshad Jones and T.J. McDonald on the top line of their depth chart at safety.

  1. Best safety in the league!!! If he signs with the dolphins he will be the franchise he also will sell out on jerseys….. please make him the highest paid safety and please don’t give him a 1 yr offer…. 5 yr 65 million

  2. Hes a “in the box” guy. good for run and slot in three safety sets, theres a reason saints are moving on and this is his first visit in FA despite the FA ranking

  3. To me a versatile Strong Safety is coveted these days since the Single High Free Safety is back en vogue (for the moment).

    Vaccaro’s best fit is with the Patriots.

    Not after resigning Chung he isn’t. They don’t need a second Rover Safety in that role behind Chung. They need to draft or develop one to keep costs down there.

    Maybe someone like a David Jones at 6’2 210 on the roster can be groomed behind Chung?

  5. In order to make it look like there’s no collusion as far as nobody signing Eric Reid the owners have colluded together to make it look like they’re not interested in any safeties. Diabolical… Not trying to be funny either. #truth

    Exactly right. He’s a tackling machine but has trouble in pass coverage. Add to that the fact that he is woefully inconsistent. Has a lot of upside though, and I would sign him if the price was right.

  7. Wait, you mean Eric Reid is not the only safety without a job? Vaccaro better sue for collusion.

    Perfect fit. An injury prone 1st rd disappointment who can’t cover.

    This from somebody with some many good things to say about the Phins.

  9. The Dolphins need S depth. They lost 2 Safeties. The problem is both McDnald and Jones are In the Box Thumpers and Vaccaro plays the same game. I would no be suprised if Tony Lippet moves over to FS. I doubt they sign him unless it is a 1 year Vet Min. Deal like they did with Osweiler.
