Free agent cornerback Bashaud Breeland hasn’t signed with the Cardinals just yet.

Breeland flew to Arizona with the intention of signing but tested positive for COVID-19 when he arrived, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The Cardinals are still planning to sign Breeland, but only when he clears COVID-19 protocols. It’s also still possible Breeland could change his mind and sign with another team. He reportedly generated interest from other teams after the Vikings cut him.

Breeland was a starting cornerback for the Vikings who was released after an altercation with coaches and teammates on the practice field. Breeland was not having a great season before he was cut, but any cornerback who’s capable of starting could be a valuable addition for a playoff team in the final weeks of the season.

  1. Don’t worry Cardinal’s fans….that’s the best thing that could happen.

    – signed, Vikings fans

  2. Just because he was starting, does not mean he was a capable starter. This is the Vikings you are referring to remember…. The latest home of .500 Kirk

  3. Take it from a Washington fan… he’s not that good. Washington let him leave and it turned out to be an unusually sound decision.

  4. Too bad Malcolm Butler quit on the NFL before the Cardinals could get a snap out of him, and Rasul Douglas was plucked from the practice squad by Green Bay.

  5. The funny thing is that the guy not only stunk on the field, but there were so many off field issues it was hard to keep up (lawsuits over marijuana use in his apt, arguments with coaches. arguments with players, twitter fights with fans, etc). This isn’t sour grapes, but the guy’s a mess on and off the field. There’s a reason KC and now the Vikes have let him go.
