Breeland, who turned 27 in January, signed a three-year, $24 million contract with the Carolina Panthers last March, but it was voided when he failed a physical because of a foot injury.
Breeland's injury dates to his childhood, when he got his left foot caught in the spokes of a bicycle. With the skin on the back of his heel shredded, doctors performed a skin graft from his left arm. The foot didn't give him any problems until last offseason, when he got hit by a golf cart while on vacation in the Dominican Republic and it was ripped open, causing an infection.
He was out of football until the Packers signed him to a minimum-salary contract on Sept. 26.
The former fourth-round pick (102nd overall) of Washington in 2014 played in seven games (with five starts) for the Packers and recorded a pair of interceptions, including one for a touchdown. With the Redskins, he played in 60 career games (with 57 starts) and had eight interceptions.
