Bashaud Breeland working out for Patriots

Free agent cornerback Bashaud Breeland‘s search for a new home has taken him to New England.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Breeland is working out for the Patriots on Tuesday. Breeland recently spent time with the Ravens, Colts, Browns, Raiders and Chiefs and also met with the Cardinals in May.

Breeland did not expect to be on the open market at this point in the calendar, but the deal he struck with the Panthers early in free agency fell through due to a cut on Breeland’s foot that required him to undergo a skin graft. He needed time to get healthy and restart his ongoing search for employment.

The Patriots have Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe, Jason McCourty, second-round pick Duke Dawson, seventh-round pick Keion Crossen and Jonathan Jones in the mix for playing time at cornerback.

  1. He’s a mediocre talent at best, would immediately be the best secondary player on that dumpster fire of a defense.

  2. There go the Patriots* wanting to be the Redskins again trying to pick up our ex-talent. Haynesworth, Springs, Breeland. That’s why we left clingy Boston in the 30’s. Cheaters.

  3. The Pats loaded might be even more loaded. I know Crossen has been banged up and unable to stay on the field at the moment, so this contract would need to be the 1 year deal variety as as a prove it deal to possibly get him a bigger FA deal next year.

    2-3 teams have already passed on him which almost screams like he’s not quite healthy yet and/or asking for too much.

    Solid player, just not sure on the football IQ/desire thingy that is important when signing in NE.

    The Redskins are one of the bottom 5 teams in the NFL

    They held it together enough to make the Super Bowl and had a great stretch. It failed them in the end, but the defense was still good enough to complete for a Super Bowl. More than I can say for 30 other teams. This year the Patriots defense is significantly better on the DL with Clayborn and significantly better at LB with Hightower back and the secondary should get a lift from the rookie class which is looking good.

    They will be good enough to compete for a Super Bowl again. If that’s a dumpster fire, then sign me up.

    If Wentz is healthy, why not. They could. Will be fun to see how they respond to having a target on their back instead of being able to play the underdog card.

    ======================

    gimme a break. the eagles are good. thats why the d got lit up. last year they (new englands d) held opponents under 20 points for 8 straight games. again, the eagles are good on offense. nobodys saying the eagles d is a dumpster fire, and they were a hail mary short of blowing it.

  9. It’s just a visit….. based on the money he ALMOST got with Carolina I’m guessing he’ll be too expensive for the Pats to scoop up….. maybe he takes a 1 year prove it deal but I doubt it….. wish him luck no matter where he ends up….. seems like a decent guy & player
    GO PATS!!!!!

  10. “He’s a mediocre talent at best”

    He had 19 passes defensed last season, that’s hardly mediocre. But Pats haters I know, you can’t stand actual facts you’d just rather whine about the mean ol’ Pats.

    Most people just laugh at you while you humiliate yourself with silly statements

    this guy sucks

    HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA THIS IS WHY YOU HAVE ZERO CREDIBILTY ON THIS FOURM YOURE NOTHING BUT A BIASED PATRIOTS HOMER!!!!

    They suck unless they come to NE. Or theyre amazing until they leave NE

    LOLLLLLL

  12. I was thought he was a good player when he was in Washington, unfortunately during his time there he was the best DB they had so he was always on the other teams best receiver. To me, he seems more like a #2 corner so if he does come to NE maybe he’ll play better since Gilmore is the top cover guy. Sometimes guys with unproven talent just need to be put in the right position in order to succeed

  13. I’ve read 2 posts today from logicalvoicesays and neither one had anything to do with RGme. Did the man crush finally wear thin?

  14. Don’t forget JC Jackson, undrafted free agent who has been getting reps with the first team. You can never have enough veteran depth, I doubt he sticks.
