let him come back really slow, he sure was grabbing jerseys a bunch, hes on top of everything why does he have to grab like that.

Don't fix things that aren't broken. He's a depth CB that can come in as needed, but isn't Deion and should not walk in and start as a 1 or 2.

Re: Breaking down the depth chart: Who covers the slot when Delvin Breaux returns?

simple answer slot

Although I believe he can play outside better than Crawley, I think it would be beneficial to let him start out playing slot till he is more acclimated to the system. Its always best to earn and not be giving anything. I am sure he will earn starting outside corner but DA will have to determine which and where the player will benefit the team the most. I don't see Crawley ever playing the slot cause he is a poor tackler which would mean he will be benched but Breaux is physical enough with better coverage ability and will be a better fit than Von Bell or Vacarro however when playing the Falcons (Jones & Sanu) it will be best for him to be playing outside. He should have earned that starting position by then

Eventually it'll probably be Lattimore and Breaux...

Crawley will come in on nickel and play outside with Breaux covering the slot...

Williams will be on ready five and Hardee will continue to develop as the fifth cornerback...

However, for this season, Breaux will be brought along slow so as to build stamina and bulk...

Slot is an issue and tackling skill set is huge. so I do not see a CB tacking over for the 3 safety look.

I just do not see a CB for the slot.
