Dolphins Hosting S Kenny Vaccaro For Visit Thursday

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media is reporting that the Dolphins are bringing in free agent S Kenny Vaccaro for a visit on Thursday.

This is the first reported interest in Vaccaro since the free agent market officially opened.

The safety market has been slow-moving this offseason, but it appears as though things are finally starting to pick up for some of the notable free agents such as Vaccaro and Eric Reid.

Vaccaro, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Saints back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $9.425 million contract when the Saints elected to pick up his fifth-year option last year that will pay him $5.676 million for the 2017 season.

Vaccaro is testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

In 2017, Vaccaro appeared in 12 games for the Saint and recorded 60 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three interceptions, a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown and seven pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 88 safety out of 88 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available 2018 NFL Free Agents list.
