Bashaud Breeland

There hasn’t been enough discussion about the Green Bay Packers’ potential need at cornerback this offseason.

Jaire Alexander had an excellent rookie season, but he missed three games due to injury. Kevin King has missed more regular season games (17) than he’s played (15). If both Alexander and King can stay healthy, the Packers will have a strong starting duo at cornerback. But that’s no guarantee.

I like Josh Jackson‘s potential, but he had an up-and-down rookie season. I also think Tony Brown can become an important part of the secondary. But Tramon Williams turns 36 this offseason and spent time at safety this past season.

But add Bashaud Breeland and suddenly the cornerback position looks much stronger. That’s why it’s so important for Green Bay to re-sign Breeland this offseason.

It’s hard to imagine there won’t be interest from around the league. A number of teams will be looking for cornerback help this offseason. Let’s not forget that Breeland originally signed a three-year deal with the Carolina Panthers last offseason, but a failed physical meant he remained unsigned until September.

After a good season in Green Bay, it’s possible he signs a multi-year deal this offseason. Brian Gutekunst must ensure it’s with the Packers.

Prediction: Re-signs with the Packers
