Report: Delvin Breaux moves to first-team nickel cornerback Tuesday

BY foxsports • June 17, 2015

The story behind Delvin Breaux seems to be getting more and more interesting as the offseason rolls on. While Breaux made some noise last week with a few big plays, they apparently didn't go unnoticed. Larry Holder of reported that during Tuesday's minicamp practice, Breaux was moved to the first-team defense.

"Breaux took nearly all of the snaps with the first-team defense as the nickel cornerback during Tuesday's minicamp practice. Breaux replaced a struggling Kyle Wilson in the slot after playing primarily on the outside during the first three weeks." Holder explained.

Sean Payton spoke about the move, as well as a few others that were made during the minicamp practice.

"The key is to get your best players on the field," Saints coach Sean Payton told Tuesday.

It's one thing to make plays, but another to be bumped up to the first-team this early on. The hype behind Breaux was interesting, but it's seeming like there's a good chance that he may be able to live up to that hype. Only time will tell, but he's off to a good start.
