The Colts may be looking to add to their secondary as they met with free agent safety Kenny Vaccaro.
The free agent market has been incredibly slow at the safety position this offseason as plenty of quality players remain available.
The Colts met with Tre Boston as well, who is another one of those safeties that still doesn’t have a contract for 2018.
Vaccaro has been a starting safety for the Saints ever since they drafted him with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

However, New Orleans decided not to re-sign the former Texas Longhorn after his rookie contract expired following the 2017 season.
Vaccaro has been pretty inconsistent throughout his career, which is probably one of the reasons why the Saints felt comfortable moving on from him.
Vaccaro has had a few seasons where he looks like a borderline Pro Bowler, but he is coming off of a terrible 2017 season where he really struggled in coverage. He has always been a strong run defender, and he could compete for a starting job playing that role in Indianapolis if Clayton Geathers isn’t 100 percent healthy after his recovery from a neck injury.
General manager Chris Ballard could get Vaccaro at a major discount as it looks like most NFL teams haven’t been willing to spend big money on this offseason’s crop of free agent safeties.
Signing Vacarro to a team-friendly one-year deal could be a shrewd move for the Colts.
