Bashaud Breeland wants to stay with Kansas City Chiefs in free agency
Cornerback Bashaud Breeland had a phenomenal season as earning his first Super Bowl in his career. He’s set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, however, he has stated that he wants to stay with the Kansas City Chiefs.
“It’s been a great journey for me, man. You know what I mean? I’m just enjoying the journey, you know what I mean? And when free agency hits, it hits,” Breeland said on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “If I’m back in Kansas City, I’m going to live life to the fullest. If I’m not, I’m gonna live it to the fullest. I’ll cross that bridge when I cross it. But at this point in time, I’m looking forward to being a part of the Kansas City Chiefs.”
Breeland was selected by the Washington Redskins in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. In his six-year career, he recorded 339 tackles, 12 interceptions, and seven fumble recoveries.
The Chiefs will have many key players that are entering free agency this offseason. Some of the players include Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins, and Tyrann Mathieu. They’re also seeking to extend Patrick Mahomes’ contract this offseason.
Nonetheless, it’s uncertain if the Chiefs are willing to resign Breeland given the number of free agents that they’ll need to re-sign. This past season, Breeland record 48 tackles, two interceptions, and two fumble recoveries. The 28-year-old could expect to receive a contract of around $11 million this offseason.
Nonetheless, there will certainly be plenty of teams that will be interested in Breeland this offseason.
