According to Nick Underhill of the Advocate, there were “strong rumors” last year that the Cowboys showed interest in Saints S Kenny Vaccaro, who is now in line to be an unrestricted free agent next month.

Clarence Hill reported a few months ago that the Cowboys tried to trade CB Orlando Scandrick to the Saints for Vaccaro during the draft last year, so this isn’t the first we’ve heard about Dallas’ interest in Vaccaro.

Vaccaro was reportedly available for trade at the start of the regular season but no deal was reached and he ultimately finished out the 2017 season in New Orleans.
