SATURDAY, 3:04pm: The Saints have reached an agreement with CFL star Delvin Breaux to help improve their secondary in 2015, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN (via Twitter). Schefter writes that the standout cornerback worked out for 13 NFL teams before agreeing with the Saints.

CFL players cannot sign with NFL teams until after February 10, according to Evan Woodbery of (via Twitter). However, Woodbery writes that the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have agreed to release Breaux, which would allow him to sign with the team immediately (via Twitter).

Woodbery highlights one of his Twitter followers who notes that this is a similar situation to when the Steelers signed Shawn Lemon (via Twitter).

Breaux is a native of New Orleans, suffering a neck injury at McDonogh 35 High School that resulted in him not being medically cleared to play college football at LSU. He should challenge for a starting spot across from Keenan Lewis on Rob Ryan’s defense, writes Woodbery.
