Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland is a full participant in the team’s offseason plans despite a recent arrest and potential suspension.

In case there were any real concerns about Bashaud Breeland’s future with the Kansas City Chiefs, the veteran cornerback has been a participant in the team’s offseason plans to date, according to defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

Spagnuolo took questions from reporters on Tuesday and relayed the latest information on Breeland. The corner is waiting for the legal situation to play out, as is the team, and is participating in as much of the Chiefs offseason video conferencing as anyone else.

Measures to stave off the spread of the coronavirus has kept players from being able to report to organized team activities as normal at Arrowhead Stadium (and other NFL venues), but players and coaches have already begun meeting via teleconference to prepare for the 2020 season.

In late April, Breeland was arrested in South Carolina on multiple misdemeanor charges, including resisting arrest. At the time the news broke, NFL reporter Tom Pelissero also stated that Breeland was facing a potential suspension of up to four games for a different incident, a potential violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.

Breeland first came to the Chiefs in 2019 on a one-year deal in which he hoped to build his value an re-enter the open market in 2020. Even after a solid season that included a Super Bowl win and an interception in the sport’s biggest game, Breeland once again took another one-year contract to remain with the team.
