Andy Reid has spoken to Bashaud Breeland since arrest
Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland was arrested earlier this week on five charges, including possession of marijuana and resisting arrest.
Head coach Andy Reid said on Friday morning that he has spoken to Breeland since the arrest. He did not share explicit details of the conversation, but he did say that he saw the video of the incident, per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.
Breeland is also facing a four-game suspension from the NFL for a separate substance-abuse policy violation.
Reid said that the Chiefs will let the case play out however it goes and that the team feels comfortable at cornerback and will be alright without Breeland to start the season.
Breeland initially joined Kansas City on a one-year deal last March. He played in all 16 games this past season, registering 48 tackles, a couple of interceptions, a pair of fumble recoveries and eight passes defended.
He re-signed with Kansas City on another one-year deal earlier this offseason.
Breeland, who played his collegiate football at Clemson, was originally selected by the Washington Redskins in the fourth round (102nd pick overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.
He spent his first four seasons with the Redskins and was a consistent contributor in the secondary, leading to Breeland agreeing to a multi-year deal with the Carolina Panthers in 2018. However, Breeland failed his physical due to an infected cut on his foot, resulting in the Panthers voiding his contract.
The Allendale, S.C. native then linked up with the Green Bay Packers in late September 2018, playing in seven games. Obviously, he’s now with the Chiefs.
