- Nick Underhill of the Advocate has confirmed that Breaux is, in fact, returning to the CFL after a few years with the Saints.
Breaux didn’t have the kind of market many thought he would this offseason.
Sources tell Underhill that Breaux had trouble getting his spine medically cleared by other teams in the NFL, which explains why he’s returning to the CFL.
According to reports, Breaux visited with the 49ers, Packers, Broncos and Patriots this offseason after the Saints declined to tender him an offer as a restricted free agent.
Breaux, 28, wound up signing on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent back in May of 2015. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1.587 million contract and was set to be a restricted free agent this offseason.
The Saints placed Breaux on injured reserve coming out of the preseason and he wound up missing the entire 2017 season. Breaux was an unrestricted free agent after the Saints declined to tender him a restricted offer.
In 2016, Breaux appeared in six games and recorded 21 tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense for the Saints.
