Somers says that no deal is considered imminent at this time and it’s possible the two parties were just checking one another out to see if there’s a fit.
Breeland also visited with the Colts earlier in the week and his foot issue is reportedly healed, allowing him to pass all medical tests, so it’s possible his market could pick up in the coming weeks.
Breeland and the Panthers agreed to a three-year, $24 million deal that includes $11 million guaranteed and $9.5 million fully guaranteed. However, he later failed a physical due to a foot injury.
Breeland, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Redskins back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.706 million contract and made a base salary of $690,000 for the 2017 season.
Breeland is testing the free agent market for the first time in his NFL career.
In 2017, Breeland appeared in 14 games for the Redskins and recorded 48 tackles, one interception returned for a touchdown and 16 pass defenses. He also contributed 280 kick return yards. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 54 cornerback out of 120 qualifying players.
