Saints News, 9/23/14: Kenny Vaccaro Has Personal Vendetta Against Cowboys

Saints safety and Texas native Kenny Vaccaro remembers how the Cowboys expressed some interest in drafting him last year and then later decided to pass on him. Vaccaro describes what happened during the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, "My agent was like, 'Hey, the Saints about to take Kenny, y'all gonna make a move?'" To which Vaccaro said the Cowboys replied, "'Nah, we don't move up for safeties.'"
