Delvin Breaux, CFL CB Standout, Signs With the Saints

New, comments

The former New Orleans-area high school standout was thought to have sustained a career-ending injury in 2006, breaking three vertebra and partially blocking an artery with a chipped bone while covering a kickoff return.

Once thought to have his career ended after fracturing 3 vertebra in his neck during high school, Devin Breaux refused to give up. He has been in the CFL since 2013, and this was said about him by RW.

A shutdown corner in the CFL last year, Breaux received strong interest this offseason. He lands in a good landing spot with the Saints, who had some of the worst cornerback play in the league in 2014. At 6-foot-1, 195 pounds Breaux has prototype size for Rob Ryan's Press Man scheme. With only Keenan Lewis and Terrence Frederick ahead of him, Breaux will have a chance for immediate playing time. Jan 24 - 2:39 PM
