In a shocking move, the Minnesota Vikings announced on Saturday that they are waiving veteran CB Bashaud Breeland.
Tom Pelissero reports that Breeland is being waived after he got into a verbal altercation at practice with coaches, took off his cleats, and fought with multiple teammates who were trying to calm the situation.
Breeland, 29, signed a one-year deal with the Vikings in the offseason. He’s started all 13 games in 2021, registering 47 solo tackles, 2 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles.
With the move, Breeland will hit the free-agent market. Before signing with the Vikings, he spent the previous two seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he won a Super Bowl ring during the 2019 NFL season.
Breeland also spent time with the Green Bay Packers and Washington Football Team over his eight seasons in the NFL.
In 2021, Breeland appeared in 13 games for the Vikings and recorded 63 tackles to go along with two interceptions.
