Saints News, 6/10/15: Kenny Vaccaro Ready to Restore Saints Defense

New, comments

From The Sun Herald: "As far as playing faster, honing in on making plays, it's a lot easier in this defense (Rob Ryan's simpler scheme)," Vaccaro said. "You can be more aggressive. You don't have to think as much. Because when you get tired, that's when the mental errors come. But if it's simple, there's not much thinking, you can just play fast."
