A movable chess piece (as NFL Films analyst Greg Cosell would say), Vaccaro spent time at every position except the defensive line in 2013.
"As for Jairus and Kenny, I think there's a clear vision of how we want you use them, and that's important," Payton said, via The Times-Picayune. "Kenny played in a lot of spots last year. I think he'll play in less of those spots this year ... That vision this year will be a little more clearer."
The change in Vaccaro's role suggests Payton feels better about his defensive personnel now that Byrd is on board and Ryan has had a full season to teach his scheme. It's no longer a necessity for Vaccaro to fill in at cornerback and linebacker in sub-packages.
