Washington coach Jay Gruden said he has talked to rookie cornerback Bashaud Breeland, but didn’t specify any punishment he might face after being cited for possession of marijuana.
“I addressed it with him,” Gruden said, via Rich Tandler of CSNWashington.com. “We’ll keep the conversation between us. But he’s well aware of what he has to do to get it fixed. We just have to move forward. And hopefully he learns from a terrible mistake.
“It’s disappointing. He’s a young kid. He’s had a great camp. This is a little hiccup, a bump in the road for him that he has a to learn from that a lot of kids go through at his age. He’ll learn from it.”
Breeland didn’t have much to say, other than he had talked to Gruden and General Manager Bruce Allen.
“The conversation that we had, we would like to keep it private, he said. “I will deal with the consequences like everyone else who [has] gotten a citation.”
The citation will likely land Breeland in Stage I of the league’s substance abuse program, though a first offense wouldn’t trigger a suspension.
The fourth-rounder was busted Monday night, the day before they broke camp in Richmond.
