Saints Sign Cornerback As Delvin Breaux Recovers From Broken Fibula
To get some help at the position, due to the loss of Delvin Breaux, the New Orleans Saints have signed a cornerback.
The Saints were searching for cornerback help after Breaux suffered a broken fibula in last Sunday's 35-34 season opening loss to the Oakland Raiders, and will be out for at least 6 weeks.
After playing his college football at William & Mary, Webb was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
The 26-year old spent one season in Dallas, mostly on special teams, totaling 13 tackles, before moving on to the Pittsburgh Steelers for the 2014 season, playing in 11 games, and compiling 2 tackles.
Last season, with the Tennessee Titans, Webb played in 9 games, including 2 as a starter, making 20 tackles, including his lone career interception, which came against the Saints.
The Titans released the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Webb in the preseason.
