The new Minnesota Vikings high school received another addition to join the likes of Patrick Peterson, Xavier Woods and the return of Mackensie Alexander.
On Friday, the Vikings confirmed that they signed cornerback Bashaud Breeland for one year. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo (h / t Adam Maya) reports that the contract is worth $ 4 million.
Breeland spent the past two seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and was part of the team that defeated the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV. The 29-year-old made headlines However, last August, when it emerged that he would miss the first four games of the 2020 campaign due to violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
For Grant Gordon from the NFL website, Breeland was arrested in April 2020 on multiple charges, including having an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle and possession of 28 grams or less of marijuana or 10 grams of hashish.
When he returned to the lineup last fall, he recorded 38 total tackles, two interceptions, one fumble recovered, one forced fumble and nine broken passes in 11 regular-season games.
