It was reported that Vaccaro would be benched on Tuesday, but Payton wouldn't completely confirm the news. "He's going to play a ton for us," Payton said. "The role he plays -- I'll leave it at that." Vaccaro seemed to confirm that his role was about to change, though didn't get into specifics. He said the whole situation has made him "put reset on everything."
Vaccaro admitted he was still getting used to a new position, and that it would take time for him to adjust. "Like I tell people this countless times, I've never been back there," Vaccaro said. Vaccaro was used mostly in nickel formations last season, but has transitioned to safety this year.
Vaccaro has played in every game this season, getting 66 tackles, two interceptions and a sack.
The New Orleans Times-Picayune chimed in that Vaccaro hasn't been playing well but called his benching "a huge surprise."
Jordan was one of the league leaders in sacks last year with 12 1/2. Vaccaro had 79 tackles in only 14 games.
Vaccaro had 92 tackles, six pass breakups, an interception, a sack and two forced fumbles.
Frederick played in two games with the Giants last year.
