Cornerback Delvin Breaux visiting with 49ers, per report

Breaux was a CFL standout and looked good in limited action in the NFL, but injuries have plagued him the past two seasons.

Cornerback Delvin Breaux is visiting with the San Francisco 49ers, according to Joel A. Erickson of The Advocate. Breaux, 28, was a Canadian Football League standout who joined the New Orleans Saints in 2015, and due to injuries, wound up starting most of the season. He finished that year with 45 tackles and three interceptions.

Unfortunately, the next two years were mired in injury. Breaux suffered a broken fibula and a shoulder injury in 2016, making him miss the majority of the season. In 2017, he suffered another broken fibula, but Saints doctors misdiagnosed it as a leg contusion. He underwent an X-ray, which revealed the real issue, and the Saints wound up firing two doctors as a result.

Either way, he didn’t play last season. He has 66 tackles, a fumble recover, 20 pass deflections and three interceptions in 22 career games. If teams feel good about his potential to come back from injury, there could be a lot to work with there.

If you want to do some more reading on Breaux, the folks over at Canal Street Chronicles wrote earlier this week about how the Saints should consider re-signing him.
