Minnesota Vikings cornerback Bashaud Breeland won a Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2019 and he’s hoping to use his championship experience to help his new team.

Did the Minnesota Vikings really need to sign another veteran cornerback before the start of the 2021 season? It depends who you ask, but it certainly wasn’t a desperate need.

Nevertheless, the Vikings recently added a new cornerback in Bashaud Breeland who was a member of a championship roster in the recent past. Breeland was a part of the Kansas City Chiefs during the 2019 season when they were able to defeat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.

Breeland’s championship experience is likely part of the reason why Minnesota was interested in signing him. The Vikings are hoping that he can take what he learned from his time with the Chiefs and use it to help Minnesota finish at the top of the NFL mountain next season.

On Wednesday, Breeland met with the local Twin Cities media for the first time since he signed with the team.

He was asked about why he chose the Vikings and what it’s been like working with Mike Zimmer so far, among other things. But throughout his virtual press conference on Wednesday, Breeland made it clear multiple times that he’s in Minnesota to help the franchise win its first Vince Lombardi trophy.

"“I’m here now and I’m ready to really help the Vikings get to something that I’ve experienced. The chemistry and love that each player has got for each other is glorious and that’s what you need, the chemistry, to get to the big dance.”"

We always hear about how winning the Super Bowl is the goal for every team. But it’s still refreshing whenever a player actually comes out and says it.

Breeland‘s mentality is exactly why the Vikings didn’t mind adding him to their roster. He’s not only a cornerback that can still get it done out on the field, but he also adds some invaluable experience that Minnesota’s secondary significantly lacked last season.

Since he’s actually been a member of a team that has won it all, some of his younger Vikings teammates will probably be more willing to listen to his advice.
