A lot of high school football players believe they missed the chance for college and on to professional greatness by the slimmest of margins. A half-inch in height, a tenth of a second in the 40, an injury before that big game attended by top D1 recruiters. And then there are the few Delvin Breauxs. The guys who make it anyway.
Breaux made it to the SEC in spite of suffering neck fractures on a kickoff return for McDonough 35, but he was never cleared to play at LSU. A successful single season in semi-pro football and a year in the Arena Football League set the stage for his ascension to professional football in Canada. An unlikely career became exceptional made the New Orleans Saints roster in 2015.
At training camp before his third season with the Saints, Breaux suffered a leg fracture that left him on IR. It was his last season (so far) in the NFL. He returned to the Canadian league where he remains with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
On September 24, 2020, Breaux filed a medical malpractice claim alleging doctors' failure to properly diagnose the 2017 training camp injury resulted in worsening of his condition through continued practice. His petition is posted below.
