As previously announced by the League, I have received a 4 game suspension for off-the-field matters. I post this today because I want to apologize, publicly, to the entire Chiefs organization, my coaches, teammates, family and fans. I accept full responsibility for my actions, and I look forward to getting back on the field with my teammates to defend our Super Bowl Title. Thank you to everyone for your continued support, and Let's Go Chiefs! #chiefs #chiefskingdom #17familia #swilyfe?? #new17 #bounceback
Breeland was a fourth-round pick out of Clemson in the 2014 NFL Draft and has since spent time with the Washington Football Team, Green Bay Packers, and now the Kansas City Chiefs, logging 12 interceptions in his six seasons in the league.
Last season, Breeland featured in all 16 games for the Chiefs, helping cement his role in their secondary as they went on to win Super Bowl LIV, posting an interception in their victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
Following his successful Super Bowl campaign, Breeland was arrested in South Carolina in April on charges including possession of marijuana.
