Saints Safety Kenny Vaccaro Benched

The Saints coaching staff continues to shake things up hoping to send a message to the players.

The New Orleans Saints have made more drastic late-season shakeups with the hope that it will spark a fire underneath the team and get them back to their winning ways.

Ian Rapoport, who earlier announced that the Saints were waiving wide receiver Joe Morgan as part of the shakeup, reports that starting safety Kenny Vaccaro has been benched.

The question is whether or not "benched" means he's not going to play or he's just not going to start. Obviously there is a big difference between the two. It would send a much stronger message if the former were true. We've also got to wonder if any of these moves are really going to send a message and inspire the players. Time will tell, I suppose.
