Is Bashaud Breeland trying to get the Minnesota Vikings to cut him?

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Bashaud had some unpleasant words for the team’s fan base following Sunday’s win over the Detroit Lions.

Prior to signing with the Minnesota Vikings earlier this year, cornerback Bashaud Breeland was a solid piece on the defensive side of the ball for both the Washington Football Team and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Heading into the 2021 season, the Vikings were expecting that the addition of Breeland would help improve a secondary that was one of the NFL’s worst in 2020.

Unfortunately, the veteran cornerback has seen his performance take a turn in the wrong direction in his first five games with Minnesota. Breeland’s play out on the field this season has been very unimpressive, to say the least.

Bashaud Breeland takes shot at Minnesota Vikings fans after criticism

With Cam Dantzler still on the Vikings’ Reserve/COVID-19 list, Breeland got another opportunity to start on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. His performance against the Lions certainly wasn’t his worst outing of the season, and Minnesota was clearly okay with him getting a bunch of playing time since he was on the field for 100 percent of Minnesota’s defensive snaps.

But early in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s matchup, Breeland was flagged for a pass interference penalty. The announcement of the penalty resulted in a sea of boos from the majority of the Vikings fans in the stands at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Instead of ignoring the reaction from the crowd, Breeland did his best impression of Razor Ramon and welcomed the boos.

Following the game, Breeland decided it would be best to post a tweet telling Minnesota’s fans to shut up in his own unique way.

It seems as though his decision-making off the field is as good as it has been on the field this season.

What exactly did he think this was going to accomplish? There’s no need for the Vikings to have someone on their roster going off on the fans because he can’t deal with their disappointment.

Before signing with Minnesota, Breeland did mention that he wanted to return to the Chiefs this year, but things just didn’t work out. So could his tweet on Sunday be some sort of way for him to try and get the Vikings to cut him so he can head back to Kansas City?

Who knows at this point, but so far, the Bashaud Breeland experiment in Minnesota is certainly going terribly through the first five weeks of the season.
