Panthers free agency: Bashaud Breeland fails physical, will not sign with Carolina

New, comments

Well, this is an interesting development.

Update: According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Breeland cut his leg, which ended up getting infected. It will take a few months to fully heal.

According to a tweet from Bill Voth, the Carolina Panthers will not be signing free agent cornerback Bashaud Breeland after he failed a physical.

Per Max Henson, the reason given was a ‘non-football injury’.

NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo reports that the non-football injury is something that happened ‘recently’ and wasn’t expected to prevent Breeland from signing anywhere.

What this means for the Panthers

They still have a huge hole at the cornerback position. After trading Daryl Worley to the Eagles for wide receiver Torrey Smith, the Panthers are in serious need of depth in the secondary. Perhaps now they will turn their focus to the NFL Draft to find a replacement for Worley.

What do you think about this, Panthers fans? Are you upset that Breeland won’t be signing after all, or do you think the Panthers dodged a bullet? Share your thoughts with us!
