1. Kenny Vaccaro

The Saints spent their 2013 first-round pick on Kenny Vaccaro out of Texas. What followed was a five-year career in New Orleans where Vaccaro was a good, but not necessarily great player on the NOLA defense.

After his time in New Orleans came to a close, Vaccaro joined the Titans and played there for three years. He didn’t play for a team during the 2021 season after Tennessee cut him during the offseason.

Vaccaro announced after getting cut that he was done playing football and joined the Gamers First organization where he serves as CEO.

From David Boclair of All Titans:

"“It’s something I’ve thought about for a long time,” Vaccaro said in a release. “I’ve been a gamer for even longer than I’ve played football, and I’ve always thought of myself as a gamer first. So, this is the realization of a dream come true for me."

Yeah, so Vaccaro’s NFL days are certainly over. Good for him for finding something he’s passionate about and running with it.
