Free agent Kenny Vaccaro signed with the Tennessee Titans, who lost starting safety Johnathan Cyprien to a torn ACL on Thursday.

Vaccaro, 27, played for the New Orleans Saints and started 67 games in his first five seasons. The 2013 first-round pick is ideally used as an in-the-box safety and plays more like a linebacker.

ESPN reported the Titans also tried to arrange a visit with free agent Eric Reid, but the former San Francisco 49ers' starter had multiple flight issues.

The Saints opted not to bring Vaccaro back due to a string of injuries, including a groin injury that cost him seven games in 2017 and led to surgery. Vaccaro visited the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins during free agency.
