Monday morning just got interesting for the New Orleans Saints. According to The Advocate’s Nick Underhill, the team is shopping cornerback Delvin Breaux. His report notes that the front office is frustrated with his injury history over the past three years.
After a stellar 2015 campaign and overcoming a major life-threatening injury, Breaux appeared in six games for the Saints in 2016, and didn’t really look the same after breaking his fibula in the team’s opener against the Raiders. Underhill also notes that there are several teams interested in the would-be starting cornerback for Dennis Allen’s defense.
Breaux, who will turn 28 in October, will become a restricted free agent in 2018. The type of return the Saints could get on Breaux is anyone’s guess. In hindsight, it sure feels like the whole Malcolm Butler failed trade with the Patriots is something to bring up. Perhaps this is good news for the other cornerbacks like Ken Crawley, Sterling Moore, and De’Vante Harris. Naturally, we’ll just have to wait and see if there’s any takers.
