Safety Kenny Vaccaro, whom Titans general manager Jon Robinson called a “primary target” to retain in free agency has agreed to a contract extension, a source confirmed to TitanInsider.
The deal is four years for $26 million, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, who was the first to report the signing.
Vaccaro, 28, came to the Titans last season after starting strong safety Johnathan Cyprien went down in training camp with a torn ACL. Vaccaro went on to play in 13 games for Tennessee, missing three games with an elbow injury suffered against the Philadelphia Eagles. Tennessee lost all three games that Vaccaro was out of the lineup.
The veteran safety was a first-round pick of the New Orleans Saints in 2013 and game to the Titans on a one-year deal last August.
Vaccaro was credited with 58 tackles, two sacks and one interception for the Titans last season.
Titans general manager Jon Robinson at the NFL Combine two weeks ago called Vaccaro a “primary target” for the club this off-season.
The Titans have released Cyprien, who was due to make $5.5 million in base salary for 2019.
Tennessee also re-signed exclusive rights free agent running back David Fluellen, which TitanInsider reported last week was expected to happen.
