A couple of weeks ago, the Minnesota Vikings reportedly had their first meeting with veteran cornerback Bashaud Breeland. On Friday, the two sides apparently decided it was time for their relationship to take the next step.
Numerous sources are reporting that the Vikings and Breeland have agreed to the terms of a one-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately made available.
Breeland has spent the last two seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. Prior to that, he played four years with the artists formerly known as the Washington Redskins, who drafted him in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, and followed that up with one season with the Green Bay Packers.
In his career, he has appeared in 94 games, picking up 81 passes defended, 14 interceptions, and two touchdowns. He also had an interception in the Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers a couple of seasons ago.
Breeland has been a starter pretty much everywhere he’s been throughout his NFL career, and should have an opportunity to be the #3 corner (at worst) for the Vikings this coming season. He will make a nice complement to Cameron Dantzler and Patrick Peterson and will add even more veteran presence to the defensive backfield for the Vikings.
What do you think of the signing of Bashaud Breeland by the Vikings, folks?
