Saints banking on young defensive backs learning quickly

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Now entering his second NFL season, Delvin Breaux has played more regular-season snaps with the Saints defense than any other cornerback on New Orleans' roster.

The question now facing the Saints is the extent to which their relative youth and inexperience at a critical defensive skill position will be a liability.

On the flip side, New Orleans really doesn't have far to fall on that side of the ball; the Saints have ranked second-to-last in the NFL in yards allowed the past two seasons.
