Bashaud Breeland’s eventful stay in free agency appears to be over. The Packers’ cornerback troubles will lead them to sign Breeland, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
Green Bay placed Davon House on injured reserve earlier this afternoon and was without Kevin King in its Week 3 loss in Washington, and the Packers will bring in the Redskins’ former No. 2 corner to help. The Packers on Tuesday worked out Breeland, David Amerson and fellow corner Arrion Springs, NFL reporter Howard Balzer reported.
Nearly a third of the league secured visits from Breeland, who took part in meetings in all four American time zones by attending summits with the Colts, Cardinals, Raiders, Chiefs, Ravens, Browns, Patriots, Dolphins and Buccaneers. Breeland met with the Colts twice.
A nixed Panthers deal set Breeland on his complicated course during the offseason. A foot injury suffered in March led to Breeland’s $8M average annual value contract with Carolina being nullified. It’s highly unlikely his Packers deal is in that neighborhood.
Breeland will join a corner corps flush with young talent. The 2014 fourth-round pick will now be a part of a group housing 2017 second-rounder Kevin King, 2018 first-rounder Jaire Alexander and 2018 second-rounder Josh Jackson.
