Bashaud Breeland, Minnesota Vikings, Agree to Contract
Bashaud Breeland has spent seven years in the NFL, the last two of which have been with the Kansas City Chiefs. Andy Reid signed Breeland to a one-year deal in March 2019. During this season he had one of his better seasons. He was named starting cornerback alongside Kendall Fuller and he recorded 48 tackles playing in every game of the regular season. Throughout the regular season, he also notched up two interceptions and recovered two fumbles. He went on to play through the playoffs as the Chiefs marched towards their Super Bowl victory. In that victory over the San Francisco 49ers, Breeland recorded an interception as he helped his team defeat the 49ers.
Prior to signing with the Kansas City Chiefs, Breeland played the 2018 season with the Green Bay Packers. Only playing in seven games through that season he recorded two interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.
Breeland joined the NFL in the 2014 NFL Draft, where he was a fourth-round selection by the Washington Football Team. Breeland went on to play in all 16 games of his rookie season recording 66 combined tackles, 14 pass deflections, two forced fumbles, and two interceptions. He played another three seasons with the Washington Football Team and started 14 games in each of those seasons meaning that he has only missed any serious time in one season of his career.
Being found in possession of marijuana meant that Breeland was suspended for the opening game of the 2015 season. After the 2019 season, Breeland again found himself in trouble with the law as he was arrested for numerous charges including possession of marijuana. Breeland pleaded guilty to this but played the final eleven games of the regular season and in the playoffs.
Nevertheless, he is a Super Bowl winner. Which means he will have plenty of knowledge and experience for his team.
