Breeland, that turned 27 in January, signed up a $24 million contract with the Carolina Panthers past March, but it had been voided when he failed a physical due to a foot injury.
Breeland’s injury dates to his youth when he captured his left foot caught in the spokes of a bike. With skin on the back of his heels shredded, doctors performed a skin graft from his left arm. The foot failed to give him any issues until past offseason, once he got hit with a golf cart whilst on holiday in the Dominican Republic also it was ripped open, resulting in an infection.
He had been out of football before Packers signed him to a minimum-salary contract on Sept. 26.
The prior fourth-round pick (102nd overall) of Washington at 2014 played seven matches (with five starts) for the Packers and recorded a couple of interceptions, including one for a touchdown. With the Redskins, he played with 60 career games (with 57 starts) and had eight interceptions.
