METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Kenny Vaccaro isn't ready to abandon his "reckless" approach to football - not even after a rookie campaign interrupted by two concussions and cut short by a broken ankle.

Looking healthy again during voluntary offseason practices, the Saints' 2013 first-round draft pick says he's eager to take on a leadership role in his second NFL season, all while continuing to initiate the type of high-speed collisions he feels he has to embrace to be effective.

Vaccaro says he "likes to bring the physical aspect to the game," and that he's not going to ever slow down just because he knocks himself out sometimes.

Last season, Vaccaro was credited with 79 tackles, one sack, four tackles for losses, eight passes defended, an interception and a forced fumble.
