Bashaud Breeland, CB, Green Bay Packers
During the 2018 offseason, the Cleveland Browns flirted more than once with former Washington Redskins cornerback Bashaud Breeland. For whatever reason, the two sides never came to an agreement and he ended up joining the Green Bay Packers. He played just seven games for them, with five starts, but was rather effective for them. Breeland recorded 20 tackles in that time while also picking off two passes and breaking up four more. He even returned one of his picks for a touchdown, which was the second of his five-year career.
Cleveland could very well be in the market for cornerback help again this offseason. Denzel Ward is entrenched as one starter, but after that there are questions. Terrance Mitchell played well at times but also struggled with health. T.J. Carrie underperformed when considering his contract and they’re unlikely to bring back E.J. Gaines who missed the majority of the season with health problems — something that has plagued him his entire career.
The Browns also may be willing to let Briean Boddy-Calhoun test the open market as Dorsey has shown a willingness to pass on the previous regimes players. With all that being said, landing a player like Breeland who can start for them would be a huge coup for this front office.
