Titans signing safety Kenny Vaccaro to replace Cyprien

Tennessee has settled on a replacement for Johnathan Cyprien in the wake of the starting safety’s recent ACL injury.The Titans have agreed to terms with former Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro, the team announced Saturday.The No. 15 overall pick in the 2013 draft, Vaccaro started 67 games in New Orleans over the past five years. After biding his time on the surprisingly slow safety market for four months, Vaccaro turned in an impressive workout on Friday, per Rapoport. The former Texas Longhorns star got the nod over fellow free agents Eric Reid, Mike Mitchell and Ladarius Webb.As it turned out, Reid missed his scheduled visit to Nashville due to multiple flight cancellations for bad weather. The Titans had positive talks with the former 49ers safety, Rapoport added, and will keep him at the top of their list if a need arises in the future.Recovering from a sports hernia surgery that prematurely ended his season in late December, Vaccaro had visited the Colts, Jets and Dolphins earlier in the offseason.
