Saints don’t tender former Ticats DB Delvin Breaux making him a free agent

The New Orleans Saints have elected to let defensive back Delvin Breaux go free, according to Nick Underhill of The Advocate.

The 28-year-old was misdiagnosed with a leg contusion during training camp and then it was discovered that Breaux actually had a stress fracture on his fibula – team orthopedists Deryk Jones and Misty Suri were fired as a result – which required surgery and caused Breaux to miss the entire 2017 season.

Breaux had two stellar seasons in Hamilton, including an all-star campaign in 2014, that led to him signing with New Orleans in 2015. He played all 16 games in his first NFL season, bursting on the scene and establishing himself as one of the top cover men in the league. In 2016 he only played in six games as injuries cost him game time. Over 22 NFL games, Breaux has 66 tackles, 2o passes defended and three interceptions.

The NFL’s free agent period opens Wednesday at 4 p.m. eastern time.

  1. Could he be coming back to the hammer???. Love to see him in black and gold

    I still say the greatest stiff arm in CFL history is the one that Sheets gave Breaux on his way to the end zone in the 2013 grey Cup. The look on shock and fear on Breaux’s face is priceless.

  4. Riders2013 you are a Idiot,Breaux fractured his spine in High School then had a steel rod inserted in place.I would say 99.9% of guys would never go back on the Field this guy went the Arena league without player College ball for next to no money than the CFL then the NFL and already has had a better NFL career than Sheets.In the CFL and NFL was recognized as a physical player! Look of fear from a stiff arm ya because fracturing your spine as a high school kid would not be scary as hell you banjo playing redneck.Bad enough you are a Riders Fan woo hoo three cup wins and all but you are also a dumb ass!

      Whatever bigplay, or is that bigmouth? Great story about Breaux but if he’s scared to play football (which he isn’t) then that’s his problem. So are yo saying Sheets shouldn’t have stiff armed him because he was hurt in high school? Breaux made a choice to play a physical sport and I just pointed out that Sheets schooled him on the way to the end zone. Moron

  5. That would be four Grey Cup wins!

    Sensitive topic for Bigplay I guess….

  7. Big play is bang on. Sheets who?

  8. It would be great to see Delvin back in the hammer and possibly Erik Harris as well. He was released by the Saints and is now on the Raiders team but if cut later that would fix Ticats problems at boundary corner and strong side linebacker. They are both still young players at around 28 years of age.

  9. Now you have your chance now to make it bigger than ever. That experience was Great, and with that door closed the next door is where you’re meant to be…. The other…Black & Gold.
    Go Steelers or Go Ticats

    Unbelieveable! Next to Cameron Wake, I figured he was the least likely guy to teturn to the CFL.
    Its dad how disposable players are in pro football, especially in the heartless, soulless NFL.
    If I was a GM in the CFL, I’d decinitely reach out to Delvin Breaux and be patient with any rehabilitation process that might be necessary. He’s worth the wait.

    I should say it’s SAD, not dad. Darn Auto correct.

  12. Riders2013 Who is the moron you do not even know what you originally posted,you stated incorrectly that he had a look of fear on his face I merely posted all he has faced I doubt very highly he was afraid of Sheets.Then your second post states your point was Sheets made a great play I concur.Sheets had a great game but in no way was Breaux in fear of trying to tackle Sheets.I realize you are from Riderville and reading what you wrote is a big challenge for you but I at least thought Most Rider Fans know Football.I guess not you, To Say a player of Breaux’s caliber was fearful just shows how Dumb you are.

  13. Breaux has made his money in the NFL over three seasons,so he’s set. It would be nice to see him back in Hamilton, but I doubt that he is the same player after the injuries, and three years older. We’ll see if he sticks with another NFL club as a backup, or signs as a Free Agent north of the border. Good Luck, Delvin.

  14. The only face I remember from the 2013 Grey Cup was the dumbfounded one on Henry Burris as a bad snap sailed over his head… good riddance Hank!
