Titans sign Kenny Vaccaro

I think him still being unsigned in August tells us more than anything... it's not just a 2 day thing. 

Reid remaining unsigned makes some sense because of the protests and the collusion lawsuit. But if Vaccaro really was ne of the top safeties in team's eyes, you think he'd still be unsigned up until this morning? 

I have very limited knowledge of the guy as a player, but from what I’ve read his issue seems to be consistency more than actual skill. Similar to Cyp, if we can just put him in the right place this might turn out for the best. 

Are we still looking at any of the others or is this it?

Pretty good signing. Very comparable player to Cyp, in my opinion, both in terms of style of play and value.

Did not expect opinions on this guy to be so polarized. 

Thought he was one of the best safeties available. Did something happen in the last two days? Lol 

The media have overhyped him.

Cyp really isnt that great. Just goes for the big hit most of the time.

Meh on Kenny as well. I liked Reid more tbh. But whatever. We should be alright

I think Vrabel had said they could still look at him later... but they signed another safety alongside KV... and I haven't seen updated plans to still meet with Reid... so it coulda just been lip service. 

If Boston signed for 1.5M in AZ last week, I expect this to also be a "minimal" commitment... same with Reid... so I can't see why we couldn't sign both.  Might be overkill, but good insurance. 

But i'm also intrigued by Cruikshank, and I don't want him buried too deep behind the starters

Agreed on Cruikshank.

I might be confusing myself, but are you saying we signed another safety other than Vaccaro? Did I miss it?

Vaccaro was all over the place today from what I read. I can’t wait to see our secondary in action Byard and Vaccaro are going to benefit a ton from our CBs this year

YEah... I think it got lost in the shuffle... but Jason Thompson... 2017 UDFA from Utah

Not a bad deal... a little more than I expected... but we're talking peanuts here in the grand scheme of NFL contracts.  Biggest thing is no guaranteed money until week 1, at which point the salary becomes guaranteed.

Vacarro reminds me of another Titan/Longhorn safety. Michael Griffin.

All the athleticism in the world. Zero instincts.

What irony that Vacarro is being coached by Griff.

And top safety is nonsense. The fact that NOBODY signed him till after training camp was very telling. Vaccaro said on the radio that he didn't expect to have to workout for a team because he has 5 years of tape. in my opinion, those 5 years of tape are the reason it took a training camp injury for him to get a serious offer. This is why I scoffed at people saying instant upgrade. People remember he was a high draft pick and then check his stat line on ESPN.com, see a couple picks and think that he was playing at a high level last season. He wasn't. There's a reason New Orleans spent back to back high round picks on safeties the past 2 seasons. The Vacarro experiment failed in NOLA.

But off the negative... the positive is that he seems to be healthy and still possess the same freakish ability that got him drafted high. Fortunately for us, we have a DC who has experience working with talented safeties and a DB coach who has a track record of developing DBs. Also, save last season, this is probably the best supporting cast he's ever had. And maybe its a tad bit of homerism to say it but Pees is a different tier of DC than the likes of Rob Ryan or Dennis Allen. So perhaps the grass will be greener in Nashville.

Would it surprise anyone if Cruikshank ended up beating out Vacarro and then us releasing Kenny?

I'd personally expect us to keep Vacarro on the roster regardless for the depth, but I wouldn't be surprised if Cruikshank ends up beating him out.
