The cornerback market has been quite interesting to watch in free agency thus far. Of course, Byron Jones and James Bradberry led the charge, commanding at least $15 million annually from their new teams.
While some teams are willing to spend that money on cornerbacks, there are always a few under-the-radar names that are available in free agency. One name that is a bit surprising to still see in free agency is Bashaud Breeland.
For the first four seasons of his career, Breeland performed pretty well with the Washington Redskins. After tallying 60 deflections and eight interceptions in the nation’s capital, Breeland has played with the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs in the last two seasons.
With the Chiefs in 2019, the Clemson product started in 15 games, contributing 48 tackles, eight pass breakups, and two interceptions. Above all, he was able to help Kansas City bolster their pass defense and win the Lombardi trophy, intercepting Jimmy Garoppolo early in the Super Bowl.
The Jaguars could absolutely use some assurance in the secondary next season. Why not add an experienced cornerback that just helped a team win a Super Bowl the prior season?
