(WVUE) -

You'll have to excuse Delvin Breaux if he seems a bit more at ease this offseason. At this point last year, his improbable journey to the NFL was only just beginning when left the CFL, signed with his hometown team and became the Saints' top cover cornerback.

This offseason there's a bit more clarity from last year's chaos.

Breaux: " I can actually sit down with my family and just enjoy it now."

And one of his favorite spots for family time is...the football field. No not as a player, but as a spectator to his wife, Kasey, and her co-ed flag football team.
"Just giving back to her just showing her that I want to watch her play football instead of her watching me all year play football." Breaux said.

"It's awesome having him out here and its great that this falls in the offseason and kind of get a little attention from him," Kasey added.

Football runs deep in the Breaux family. It's not just Delvin's profession, it's also where their chemistry first grew when Delvin and Kasey were teammates at LSU.

 "It's one of the first things we bonded over when we first met, " Kasey said.

"We were like the ultimate tag team," Delvin added. "We get out there and we dominate teams."

And it turned out, Delvin and Kasey share more than just a last name on the field. They also have a competitive fire that burns every time they play. Of course it helps to have an NFL cornerback on the sideline to give pointers. 

"It's at half where he will sit me down and say 'okay now you know you messed this up right?'" Kasey explained. "But unless I score an amazing touchdown, which happens a lot, then he gets really excited."

And wouldn't you know it, that's exactly what happened when Kasey hauled in a deep route for a touchdown. Making plays like that, the question had to be asked: who is the best athlete in the Breaux household? Kasey said, there's no contest.

"I am by far the best athlete and I'm sticking to that."
