Redskins not interested in reunion with Bashaud Breeland

Bashaud Breeland, Redskins

The Washington Redskins are not interested in bringing back cornerback Bashaud Breeland, according to John Keim of ESPN.com.

Keim qualified his statement by saying that the Redskins could potentially take a look at Breeland if he is still available later on, but as of right now, they have no intention of a reunion even with the club in dire need of cornerback depth.

Breeland spent the 2019 campaign with the Kansas City Chiefs, playing in every game and registering 48 tackles, a couple of interceptions, a pair of fumble recoveries, eight passes defended and a defensive touchdown with the Super Bowl champs.

The 28-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Clemson, was originally selected by Washington in the fourth round (102nd pick overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.

He appeared in every contest during his rookie year, finishing with 66 tackles, two picks, two forced fumbles and 14 passes defended.

Breeland went on to spend the first four seasons of his career with the Redskins. He represented a durable piece in Washington’s secondary, missing just four games throughout that stretch (one of those games was due to a substance abuse suspension).

The Allendale, S.C. native then signed a one-year deal with the Green Bay Packers in September 2018 and proceeded to appear in seven contests with the Packers that season, logging 20 tackles, two interceptions, a fumble recovery, four passes defended and a defensive score.

Breeland linked up with the Chiefs last March.

The Redskins went just 3-13 this past season and will pick second overall in the NFL draft next month. They have made the playoffs just three times since 1993.
