Veteran DeAngelo Hall is the starter at left corner, with E.J. Biggers listed behind him. Biggers has also been working as the first-team nickelback. Breeland did receive a look at nickel early in training camp because Morris was comfortable moving Breeland despite his lack of experience.
“Usually you like to get those guys, leave them outside, see if they can be an outside corner, let them pick things up, get some confidence,” Morris said. “But, he really came with a lot of confidence in the spring. I felt good about moving him around because he had it. He picked it up.”
On Monday’s depth chart, Breeland was listed third at left corner. Tracy Porter injured his hamstring Monday night, which should provide Breeland with more opportunity to play.
The team has been pushing the notion Breeland’s training camp gaffe is behind him. An Aug. 26 hearing in Richmond should complete that process. Then, if he picks up life lessons as quickly as coverage technique, he should be left to his first year of professional football.
