Veteran cornerback Bashaud Breeland was released by the Vikings on Saturday, two days before Minnesota's Monday night showdown in Chicago against the Bears. Breeland was released after he got into a verbal altercation with coaches and some of his teammates, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport.
"Wow," Breeland wrote on Twitter shortly after the news broke of his release from the Vikings. He later posted a second message expressing his appreciation for the Vikings. "No hard feelings no love lost," Breeland wrote.
The 29-year-old defensive back was signed by the Vikings this offseason. A starter on the Chiefs' Super Bowl LIV championship team, Breeland picked off two passes and forced two fumbles this season.
