Former New Orleans Saints defensive back Delvin Breaux is going back to his Canadian Football League roots.

Breaux has signed a one-year deal with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, the CFL team he played for previously before signing with the Saints in 2015, a source confirmed Monday (June 18).

Justin Dunk of was the first to report the news.

He played in all 16 games in his first season with the Saints and had 45 tackles and three interceptions before he broke his fibula early in his second season in 2016.

After playing in just six games that season, Breaux tried to return in 2017. He was misdiagnosed with a leg contusion during training camp, and it was discovered that Breaux had a stress fracture on his fibula that required surgery.

Team orthopedists Deryk Jones and Misty Suri were fired for the misdiagnosis.

He became a free agent after the Saints didn’t tender an offer. Breaux visited the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots, but he was not offered a contract.

A couple of weeks ago, Breaux, a New Orleans native who starred at McDonogh 35 High, said in an interview on WWL-AM that he was healthy and eager to get a chance to play.

“I talk to my agent every other day about teams,” Breaux said. “We get some positive feedback. I’m just training, working, enjoying the process and can’t wait to get signed somewhere.”

The CFL is in its second week of a 21-week regular season that ends the first week in November.
