Bashaud Breeland took a lengthy visit with the Chiefs earlier today, during which he not only met with the club for hours, but watched Kansas City’s defensive backs go through drills. But the free agent cornerback has now left the Chiefs without a contract in place, per Field Yates of ESPN.com (Twitter link), who adds Breeland has not still not ruled out signing with Kansas City at some point.
While Breeland doesn’t yet have a contract in hand, he’s among the best defenders still available on the free agent market. The 26-year-old originally signed a three-year, $24MM deal with the Panthers at the outset of free agency, but Carolina voided the pact after an off-field foot injury forced a failed Breeland physical.
Since then, he’s been linked to numerous teams, but he’s also left a meeting with the Raiders without a deal in place. Next up, Breeland is reportedly set to meet with both the Browns and Colts. At this point, it’s unclear as to the holdup on Breeland finding a new club, but his foot issue is surely being checked by team medical officials.
Breeland was originally a fourth-round Redskins pick in 2014 draft. A Clemson product, Breeland has been a starter from day one, totaling eight interceptions in 58 starts during his four-year career. Last season, Pro Football Focus ranked Breeland as the No. 50 cornerback among 121 qualifiers.
