The Saints claimed safety Robenson Therezie off waivers from the Falcons to take Breaux’s roster spot.
Lost to a broken fibula in Week 1, Breaux returned to play in five more games for New Orleans this season, serving as their top cornerback. However, the former CFL standout suffered a shoulder injury earlier this month and hasn’t played since Week 14. Breaux finished the season with 21 tackles and a pass deflection.
This season proved to be a step back for the ascending corner who proved he could be a quality stopper in the NFL in 2015. Breaux is under contract for one more season in New Orleans at $619K. The Saints have started B.W. Webb in his place and figure to do so again against the Bucs on Saturday.
Therezie broke into the NFL as a UDFA in Atlanta in 2015 and has played in 25 games thus far through two years, making two starts in that span. The former Auburn performer played in 12 games for the Falcons this season before being sent to waivers, being used mostly on special teams.
