Bashaud Breeland reacts after being lifted after altercation

The Minnesota Vikings have taken drastic action following an altercation in training. After Bashaud Breeland clashed with coaches and teammates, Minnesota gave up on their starting cornerback, per Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

ESPN’s Courtney Cronin exposed what happened with the defensive back of the Vikings:

The situation started in a defensive boardroom on Saturday morning as the cornerback and a coach watched a game from a previous game, the source said. Later in practice, Breeland took to the field with the defensive starters but was told to get out of the roster, according to the source. After waiting on the sidelines, the cornerback returned to the locker room to change his studs. Once back on the training ground, a verbal altercation ensued between the cornerback, several teammates and coaches, and ended with GM Rick Spielman intervening to defuse the situation. The source said Spielman took Breeland to his office to sort out the situation and ultimately gave up on the cornerback.

A free agent having signed in the last offseason, Breeland started all 13 Vikings games this season. He recorded 63 tackles and two interceptions.

Breeland took to Twitter to respond to his waiver.

The Vikings, at 6-7, are at the heart of a playoff race. They are currently away due to a tiebreaker, so they can’t afford to lose too many more games. This training surge couldn’t have come at a worse time for them.

Minnesota will face the Chicago Bears on Monday night.
