New Orleans Saints' Delvin Breaux continues to receive high praise

BY foxsports • August 3, 2015

Delvin Breaux came to the New Orleans Saints from the Canadian Football League looking to make a statement and show that he belongs. To this point, he's done that and more, according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.

Breaux has received praise from pretty much all over the Saints' organization to this point in the offseason. Most recently, it was defensive assistant Dennis Allen and head coach Sean Payton.

"He's been a pleasant surprise," senior defensive assistant Dennis Allen told ESPN. "Obviously I thought he had a really good spring. He's come back out and really picked up where he left off.

“It was a good practice for him," Payton said. "I saw him get his hands on a handful of balls. He's been very consistent. He's instinctive. And (like starting corners Keenan Lewis and Browner), he's got the length and the makeup speed."

Breaux obviously still has an uphill climb against a strong secondary that has been put together in New Orleans. With that said, if he can continue to make plays and draw high praise, there's no reason to believe that he won't be on the final roster in 2015.
