The Kansas City Chiefs are signing cornerback Bashaud Breeland, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.

Friend of the site Terez Paylor of Yahoo! Sports says the deal is for one year.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport provided additional contract details.

Breeland, 27, first entered the league with the Washington Redskins as a fourth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Breeland’s name should sound familiar, as he was spotted on the field at Chiefs training camp last year in St. Joseph.

Breeland had become a free agent last offseason when a three-year, $24 million deal with the Carolina Panthers was voided due to a cut to his foot. The 5-foot-11, 195-pound cornerback eventually signed a one-year deal with the Green Bay Packers. In seven games in Green Bay (hamstring and groin injuries), Breeland recorded 20 tackles (16 solo), four passes defensed and two interceptions, including one for a touchdown.

Prior to his short stint with the Packers, Breeland started 58 games for Washington, and never fewer than 14 games a season. With the departure of Steve Nelson to the Pittsburgh Steelers, I expect Breeland to compete with Charvarius Ward for the Chiefs’ second cornerback spot in the 4-3 under base across from Kendall Fuller.

In 67 career games, the five-year veteran has accumulated 288 tackles (227 solo), 64 passes defensed and 10 interceptions.
