Vaccaro was signed after

— Throughout its offseason team activities Blake Comeau Jersey , the Seattle Seahawks appeared to be settled at safety. Bradley McDougald would just continue his role from a year ago stepping in as a full-time starter alongside Earl Thomas.

That was before Thomas decided to take his demands for a new contract to the extreme by holding out, creating an unexpected competition and a bit of chaos in Seattle’s defensive backfield.

With Thomas missing, Seattle’s safeties are a revolving door of combinations trying to find the pairing that makes the most sense ahead of the Sept. 9 opener at Denver. The process of seeing how all those combinations look gets its first true examination next Thursday when the Seahawks open the preseason against Indianapolis.

“These guys, they kind of joined forces in the offseason and kind of as a group, they knew they were up against it and wanted to make sure that they were going to give everything they had and put it all on the line,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “Bradley McDougald has done a great job of being the leader in that group and it’s a good, tight group and they’re ready to take on the challenge of getting through camp and getting through all of the learning and the experience that’s necessary here is all part of the process http://www.officialkings.com/authentic-adidas-alex-iafallo-jersey , but their attitude is really strong and they’re really determined to do something with this.”

McDougald is almost certain to claim one of the positions. Which one is the question. He filled in as both free and strong safety last year when injuries sidelined Thomas and Kam Chancellor. McDougald was the starting strong safety after Chancellor was lost for the season in early November to a neck injury.

That doesn’t mean McDougald will be the strong safety. Throughout the first week of training camp, Seattle has rotated its safeties in both positions in an attempt to see how interchangeable the players can be.

“They have the opportunity to show themselves and it’s a lot of competition,” defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. said. “Great communication, it’s showing up every day. Doing extra work, asking a lot of good questions. But, this is their chance to really step up and show us what they have.”

With McDougald seemingly a cinch to take one of the safety spots, the remaining position appears to be a four-way competition between Tedric Thompson Youth Dustin Byfuglien Jersey , Delano Hill, Maurice Alexander and Mike Tyson. And it’s Thompson and Hill that appear to be getting the most opportunity early on.

It makes sense Seattle would give Thompson and Hill the most reps. The Seahawks invested major draft capital in the pair a year ago, taking Hill in the third round and Thompson in the fourth round. They were allowed to spend last season learning behind Thomas and Chancellor with the idea they could eventually take over for the veteran Seahawks safeties.

The replacement has arrived sooner than expected, accelerated by Thomas’ holdout.

“Earl is a special, special player. At the same time, the guys that are here are working really hard and competing and they have the opportunity to show what they can do,” Norton said.

From a look standpoint Zack Smith Jersey , Thompson fits the mold of a free safety and Hill looks more like a strong safety. But each is working at both positions as Seattle often adjusts its safety alignments based off the offensive formation. Neither has the sideline-to-sideline speed of Thomas, but Norton has said Seattle’s scheme won’t change.

“I view it as competing. First game is a little ways to go. I’ve got a lot to improve on,” Thompson said. “I don’t focus on if I’m starting today or not starting today. We all get the same amount of reps so it’s all about competing.”

Safety Kenny Vaccaro had a long wait on the free agent market before landing a job with the Titans last weekend, but things have sped up considerably from there.

Vaccaro was signed after incumbent Titans starter Johnathan Cyprien tore his ACL in practice and the team didn’t waste any time in getting Vaccaro into a spot alongside Kevin Byard with the first team. Vaccaro did individual work after signing Saturday, studied the playbook on Sunday and found himself running with the ones to kick off the week.

“I thought I was going to get kind of worked in a little bit,” Vaccaro said, via the Tennessean. “But I was glad I could go out there Youth Jordan Weal Jersey , set the tempo. Couple times, make some plays. … To be honest, I really wasn’t looking at it like first-team or second-team at all really. I was just trying to catch my rhythm. I haven’t really practiced with a team for like six months. So to come out here and really just run around, I’m just thankful.”

Vaccaro’s quick transition to his new role and new team is set to continue on Thursday night. The Titans will face the Packers and Vaccaro is expected to see playing time as he makes up for lost time.
