Dedeaux and his partner Tom House also worked with Tim Tebow when he was still attempting to be a National Football League player. After working with House and Dedeaux, he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Since he has come into the league, interceptions have been a problem. He had 17 picks in 2014, before adding 18 last season.
