Green Bay Packers T-Shirt The Packers have agreed to contract terms with veteran cornerback Bashaud Breeland after reportedly deciding cornerback Davon House would head to injured reserve with a shoulder injury.The move was first reported by ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.Breeland was one of several corners the Packers worked out on Tuesday, along with a handful of offensive linemen and one other notable name: defensive lineman Quinton Dial, who spent the 2017 season in Green Bay.It’s a considerable good break for the Packers that Breeland is available at all. He had agreed to a three-year, $24 million contract with the Carolina Panthers in the offseason only to have the deal voided when he failed a physical due to an infected cut on his foot. A fifth-year player out of Clemson, Breeland is not an overwhelming athlete (just a 4.53 in the 40-yard dash at the 2014 Combine) but made his living in Washington getting his hands on the football. He started 58 games over four seasons there, intercepting eight passes and averaging just under 15 passes defensed per season.His lone interception in his final season with Washington was one to remember: in Week 14 he snagged an errant pass and sprinted 96 yards for a touchdown.Breeland’s one postseason appearance with Washington came against Green Bay in the 2015 playoffs. Deep in the fourth quarter with the Packers attempting to run the clock out, Breeland forced running back Eddie Lacy to fumble, then recovered the ball himself. He had four other tackles in the game.Terms of the contract have not yet been reported.JK Scott’s Packers debut was a solid performance, despite one long return If you’re an NFL general manager who drafts a punter, you had better get consistently exceptional performances from that player in order to make that draft pick worthwhile. The Seattle Seahawks got not just an exceptional performance from fifth-round pick Michael Dickson on Sunday; they got an all-time performance. Dickson, who punted six times in his rookie debut on Sunday, did something that has only been achieved a handful of times in NFL history by putting up a gross punting average of 59 yards. His net yardage of 57.5 ranks second all-time for a single game with four or more punts Green Bay Packers Hats , while four of his six were downed inside the 20-yard line.Taken a few selections after Dickson in the fifth round of this year’s draft, Green Bay Packers punter JK Scott did not match Dickson’s lofty numbers, which were helped at least somewhat by the thin Denver air. However, Scott acquitted himself well in his rookie debut against the Bears, even though his leg ended up being done with its workload by halftime.Scott’s results were positive on his first three kicks, which averaged 44.7 yards gross and 43.7 net. A 10-yard holding penalty by the Bears on the first punt (which does not get included in gross yardage) only helped further. Those three kicks consisted of the following:39-yard punt, out of bounds at the Bears’ 24 (holding penalty on Bears moved the ball back another ten yards)44-yard punt to Bears’ 29, 3-yard return by Tarik Cohen51-yard punt to Bears’ 15, fair-caught by Tarik CohenThat’s a very solid start, though Scott saved his strongest punt for last. On the play immediately following Aaron Rodgers’ injury, Scott drilled a booming 58-yard punt from the Packers’ 27 all the way to the Bears’ 15-yard line. Unfortunately for Scott, his coverage team was not up to the challenge; good blocking from the Bears and poor lane discipline by a few key Packers allowed Cohen to rip off a 42-yard return.(As an aside Green Bay Packers Hoodie , long snapper Hunter Bradley made the tackle on that play. That gave him one more tackle than Brett Goode had in the past four seasons combined, according to Pro Football Reference.)A review of the tape on Scott’s big kick by our Peter Bukowski indicated that Scott’s kick was long and high, as one would want — in other words, he didn’t hit a low bullet that put his coverage team in a bad spot. However, although his gross average jumped to 48 yards per punt, the return dropped Scott’s net average to 36.8 yards on the night.Still, it was a solid evening overall for Scott. He had no issues with handling snaps, either as the punter or the holder, he had some solid directional punting early, and the one long return he allowed was not really his fault as he crushed the football and was let down by his coverage unit. It was not an all-time great performance like Dickson’s, but it’s at least a sign of good things to come for the rookie.
