The Tennessee Titans are re-signing safety Kenny Vaccaro, according to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Vaccaro signed a one year deal with the Titans last year after Johnathan Cyprien tore his ACL before the start of the season. The former Texas Longhorn played extremely well in 2018, totaling 58 tackles and an interception in 13 games.

With the signing, the Titans have officially released Cyprien.

Vaccaro’s deal with the Titans is very reasonable for a player who schematically worked well within Dean Pees’ defense.

Not only do the Titans keep the core of their secondary together, but they’ll have plenty of financial freedom to fill other holes.

The Titans have plenty of salary cap space remaining (after this signing they have around $38 million left). They still need to address wide receiver, pass rusher and interior offensive line in free agency. And they should probably consider upgrading their backup quarterback.

By the way, Kevin Byard is a big fan of the Titans re-signing Vaccaro, and he might have even thrown a little shade at Cyprien.

Byard and Vaccaro at the safety positions is a lethal combination for the Titans.
