After winning the Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs, veteran cornerback Bashaud Breeland currently finds himself on the open market as a free agent.
There are no shortage of options for Breeland as one of the top corners remaining in free agency. That’s likely why he has taken his time to decide where he wants to play in 2020. It also may be understandably difficult to leave a team after one-year when it netted a championship.
When asked by NFL Network analyst Nate Burleson on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” about possibly resetting the cornerback market, Breeland expressed he wants to ‘get what I deserve from this league.’
“I never really thought about that aspect,” Breeland said. “I mean, everybody wants to go get their money. At this point, you’ve really got to look for what you deserve. I just want to get what I deserve from this league.”
It’s understandable that Breeland wants to get fairly compensated for the value that he provides. It’s especially reasonable when considering he is coming off a one-year deal worth just $2 million with the Chiefs and before that, was signed to just a $880,000 contract with the Green Bay Packers.
Breeland is coming off a successful season playing a key role for the Chiefs defense. He appeared in all 16 regular season games and totaled 48 combined tackles (one for loss), two interceptions, and eight passes defensed.
With that being said, there are three teams that stand out as potential landing spots for Bashaud Breeland.
