CB - MIN
Week 2 Outlook
The Vikings signed former Kansas City Chiefs DB Bashaud Breeland to a contract on Friday.
Breeland adds experience and bolsters a deep Vikings secondary which includes Patrick Peterson, Tye Smith, and Mackensie Alexander. He’s started 27 games for the Chiefs the past two seasons and will most likely line up alongside Peterson. Breeland racked up 38 tackles and two interceptions across 11 games for Kansas City in 2020.
Chiefs CB Bashaud Breeland has been handed a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
This suspension was known to be coming down from the NFL, but now it’s official. He’ll be eligible to return Week 5 against the Raiders.
CB Bashaud Breeland is returning to the Chiefs on a one-year deal worth up to $4.5M.
After starting his career in Washington, and then playing for the Packers for one season in 2018, Breeland will return to Kansas City for one more year after playing an integral role for them in 2019. He even had an interception in the Super Bowl to wrap up an impressive campaign. He should continue to be a key piece for this defense.
Bashaud Breeland recorded one solo tackle, a fumble recovery and returned an interception for a touchdown in the Packers' win over the Atlanta Falcons.
While Breeland has had limited action this season, playing just four games, he has posted respectable results when he is on the field with two interceptions and 14 total tackles. The 2014 fourth-rounder is worth keeping an eye on going into the final weeks of the season.
Bashaud Breeland recorded eight total tackles (four solo) in the Packers' loss to the Patriots on Sunday Night Football.
Breeland impressed in his first game action of the year, being one of four cornerbacks to each eight tackles in Week 9. While Breeland isn't worth a waiver claim as there are better options available, he is worth keeping an eye on as it was his first game of the year.
