Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro is reportedly the subject of trade talks involving multiple teams, according to several reports, although the nature of those talks is in dispute. 

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported on Friday night that the Saints were engaged in talks with "a handful of teams" about Vaccaro, given the depth New Orleans has at safety, and NFL Network's Ian Rapaport reported Sunday morning that the Saints were shopping the veteran.

But Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reported on Sunday that the Saints did not initiate any of those conversations, but the team has been approached by other franchises looking to acquire Vaccaro's services.

Vaccaro, who is easily the most established and productive member of the New Orleans secondary, started at strong safety with rookie Marcus Williams playing free safety in the season opener against the Vikings, a decision that left 2016 second-rounder Vonn Bell with just six defensive snaps. 

New Orleans has played three safeties extensively before, but the Saints are deep at the position. 

Vaccaro, who had 68 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and a sack in 12 games last season, made six tackles in the season opener against the Vikings.
