Even after the addition of Tramon Williams, the Green Bay Packers still have interest in the free-agent cornerback market. According to ESPN’s Mike Triplett, the team plans to meet with cover man Delvin Breaux.

A former undrafted free agent, Breaux became a starter for his hometown New Orleans Saints after making the team in 2015. Before that, he spent time in the CFL as well as multiple small professional leagues in the United States. Breaux has battled numerous injuries during his time with the Saints, including multiple fractured fibulas over the past two seasons. Still, he appears healthy now and could become a factor for a defense in 2018.

Even with the addition of Williams, the Packers still lack depth at cornerback. They traded Damarious Randall to the Cleveland Browns earlier this month and fellow starter Davon House remains unsigned. Their top returning player at the position, 2017 second-round pick Kevin King, missed much of his rookie campaign with shoulder issues and has yet to firmly establish himself as a bona fide starter.

Breaux likely wouldn’t ascend the depth chart should he sign with Green Bay, but he could potentially become a valuable depth piece for a secondary that has dealt with significant health issues in recent seasons.

In 22 career games, Breaux has recorded 55 tackles, 20 pass breakups, and three interceptions. He turns 29 in October.
