Report: Delvin Breaux Reaches Agreement With New Orleans Saints


According to reports, Delvin Breaux, a Big Easy native and standout cornerback from the Canadian Football League, has reached a deal with the New Orleans Saints.

Breaux reportedly worked out with 13 NFL teams before agreeing to terms with his hometown team.  He attended McDonogh 35 Senior High School in the Crescent City before taking his talents to the Louisiana Bayou Vipers, a semi-pro football team he played for in 2012.

After his time with the Bayou Vipers, Breaux was signed by the New Orleans Voodoo of the AFL in November of 2012, only soon to be placed on Other League Exempt the following May.

Just days after his departure from the Voodoo, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL signed Delvin where he played from 2013-2014.  However, he was just released into free agency by the Tiger-Cats, granting him the opportunity to sign with an NFL team.

The highly recruited high-school athlete suffered three broken vertebrae and a blocked artery while covering a kick in high school in 2006, losing his opportunity to go on and play in college.  At 6-foot-1, Breaux is supposed to play with extreme physicality while displaying excellent coverage skills — two traits New Orleans lacked this past season.

In 2014, Breaux was named to the CFL East All-Star team after recording 33 tackles, an interception, three forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, five pass breakups and a defensive touchdown.  It’s been a remarkable journey for the young defensive back, and now, he looks to continue that success as a professional football player for his hometown Saints.
