The Chiefs received a roster exemption for Breeland, but it looks like they plan to activate him soon considered they also cut Kemp. 

Breeland served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. 

Breeland, 28, 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.

The following year, 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 and it took until September for him to agree to a one-year contract with the Packers.

The Chiefs signed Breeland to a one-year contract last year and brought him back on a one-year contract worth up to $4.5 million last month. 

In 2019, Breeland appeared in all 16 games for the Chiefs and recorded 48 tackles, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, a defensive touchdown and eight passes defended.
