Report: Bashaud Breeland not expected back in Washington

Cornerback Bashaud Breeland agreed to a three-year deal with the Panthers early in free agency, but never got a chance to sign it.

The Panthers backed out of the deal due to a failed physical. Breeland suffered a cut on his foot that was bad enough to require a skin graft to repair it and word at the time was that he’d need months of recovery time before he’d be able to pass a physical.

Given how close that would be to the start of the season, a return to familiar surroundings in Washington might be a good way for Breeland to keep the lost time from hurting him too much on the field. It does not appear such a return is in the cards, however.

J.P. Finley of NBC Sports Washington reports that the Redskins aren’t expected to be interested in bringing Breeland back once he’s healthy. They signed Orlando Scandrick to go with Josh Norman, Quinton Dunbar, Fabian Moreau and Josh Holsey on the cornerback depth chart.

    welcome to washington

    What’s that even supposed to mean? Is it a complement that the Redskins are showing due diligence not signing a journeyman corner for star money? Is it chiding the Redskins for not signing Bree? Are you saying he’ll resign with the Redskins and that is funny for some reason apparent only to you? Are you a damaged person laughing at his injury?
    What is it you are attempting to convey?

  2. There’s more to this than just his football ability—the Redskins obviously don’t want him around. He’s a heck of a lot better than Orlando Scandrick at this point in their careers.

    Scandrick is most likely going to play slot CB. Fabian Moreau was drafted in the 3rd round last year in anticipation of letting Breeland walk in the future. Many scouts had Fabian Moreau as a 1st-2nd round talent. He fell to the 3rd round because he tore his pectoral muscle at his pro day.

  4. Breeland can wait. He’ll find a landing spot soon enough. Good CBs are hard to come by. Breeland, when his head is on straight, is a pretty good CB.

  5. He got run over by a golf cart. That’s what the cut is from. Not even kidding.

    I also get the sense that Washington just kind of has had enough of him. There’s not much out in the public, to suggest he’s a bad dude, but you can tell by the team’s stance that he’s perhaps difficult to get along with.

    All that said, I hope someone signs him so Washington gets a compensatory pick. (That failed physical cost Washington a fourth rounder.)

  6. His cut got infected while he was in the bahamas or something which caused this whole issue

  7. Washington has a horrible secondary. Allowing Breeland to depart won’t improve things at all. Washington will just more incompetent depth. This could be one of the worst secondaries in NFL history for 2018’s season.

  8. One of the most overrated CBs in the NFL, and not a Saint off the field or
    in the locker room. Definitely not worth the money the Skins would need to
    spend to keep him. As a Skins fan, I was glad to see him go. The money can be
    better spent elsewhere. That being said, if they don’t spend their cap money,
    I’ll be pissed. As the latest poll implied clearly, Bruce Allen is not trusted and
    needs to go !

    Plenty of cap space this year. Only 9 mil next year to sign Preston Smith, Jamison Crowder, and pay up Brandon Scherff’s option. That said Bruce Allen is not trusted and needs to go
