The Denver Broncos are staying active in free agency, bringing in free agent cornerback Delvin Breaux, formerly of the Saints…

The Denver Broncos signed cornerback Tramaine Brock on day one of free agency, but they are not done looking into ways they can improve that position after trading Aqib Talib.

Shortly after it was announced that Delvin Breaux would not receive a restricted free agent tender from the New Orleans Saints, it was reported that the Broncos would be bringing him in for a visit and physical, and would sign him if all went well.

Here’s the report:

It’s unfortunate that Breaux has not been able to stay healthy the past two seasons. He was phenomenal in 2015 for the Saints, looking like he had a future in the NFL as a shut-down cornerback but like Klis notes, he suffered a broken fibula in each of the past two years.

Keep in mind, that is in addition to Breaux’s incredible comeback from a broken neck, an injury that basically cost him his collegiate career and resulted in him playing football in the CFL for a period of time before he got the NFL’s attention.

This guy is lucky to be walking, much less playing football, and if he can come even close to returning to his 2015 form, the Broncos would be getting a steal here.

It sounds like the Broncos are trying to resurrect the careers of a couple of guys at the cornerback position who had been really good in the past, and perhaps just need a change of scenery and a good team around them to succeed.

Tramaine Brock didn’t get that career resurrection with a great defense in Minnesota, but with barely any snaps, he also didn’t get much of a chance.

The situation with Brock and Breaux is very intriguing. I’m guessing the Broncos would not have to pay a ton of guaranteed money to either guy, but considering their history in the league, there is some significant upside to these moves.
