A New Orleans native who suffered a serious neck injury as a high school senior that did not allow him to play college football, the persistent Breaux took a route through the Gridiron Developmental Football League, the Arena Football League and the CFL, ultimately parlaying that success into a free agent contract with New Orleans. After securing a roster spot in training camp, he started all 16 games and finished with 49 tackles (38 solo), a team-high three interceptions and 23 passes defensed, and a fumble recovery. Breaux was voted by his teammates as the club’s 2015 Ed Block Courage Award winner, which is given annually to a player from each National Football League team who has persevered through adversity.
