Cornerback Bashaud Breeland is showing his hand a bit before hitting free agency. The veteran told SiriusXM NFL Radio that he’s “looking forward to being a part of the” Chiefs organization next year.
“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 (via Josh Alper of ProFootballTalk.com). “If I’m back in Kansas City, I’m going to life 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’s 2018 campaign was a bit of a mess. After inking a three-year, $24MM contract ($11MM guaranteed) with the Panthers, his contract was voided due to an infected foot. He had to wait until late September of that season until he finally caught on with the Packers, but he was hampered by a hamstring injury throughout his Green Bay tenure.
The 28-year-old had to settle for a one-year deal with the Chiefs last offseason, and he had a bounce-back season in 2019. He appeared in all 16 regular season games (15 starts) for Kansas City, compiling 48 tackles, eight passes defended, and a pair of interceptions. He also came up big during the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win, compiling seven tackles and snagging a pick.
