Bashaud Breeland might not be a Viking anymore, but that hasn’t stopped him from going after Minneapolis Media. After an up and down season that saw Breeland lash out at both fans and media, he was finally released after getting in an altercation with another teammate prior to the team’s primetime game against the Chicago Bears.
While Breeland has made peace with the Vikings via Twitter, he still seems to hold a grudge against Pioneer Press reporter Chris Tomasson.
Following the team’s loss to Los Angeles Rams, Tomasson pointed out that despite not playing in the past two weeks, Breeland’s rankings amongst corners in the NFL, according to PFF, had actually gone up.
“Former #Vikings cornerback Bashuad Breeland has improved his Pro FootballFocus ranking by not playing. When he was released by the #Vikings on Dec. 18, he was ranked No. 117 among all NFL cornerbacks. After being out two games, he is now No. 112,” Tomasson tweeted.
Breeland didn’t take too kindly to Tomasson pointing out this embarrassing statistic snapping back at him with a tweet of his own that insinuated that Tomasson had some sort of personal hatred for Tomasson since he signed with the team.
This isn’t the first time that these two have clashed heads, if you remember, Breeland didn’t take too kindly to Tomasson’s question about if he was embarrassed about being one of the worst graded corners according to PFF.
Breeland is no stranger to controversy over Twitter, as just after the last-second win against the Detroit Lions in week 5, Breeland lashed out at Vikings fans on Twitter in the now infamously deleted tweet.
Tomasson has since sent out a DM over Twitter to Breeland so we have yet to see what will emerge from the latest twist in the twitter fued.
