Three years ago, cornerbacks Bashaud Breeland and Kendall Fuller were starting for the Washington Redskins.
On Sunday, they became Super Bowl champions — and had game-changing interceptions to boot.
Fuller grabbed the game-sealing interception late in the fourth quarter of the Kansas City Chiefs’ 31-20 victory against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The 24-year-old played two seasons for the Redskins before he was traded along with a third-round pick for Alex Smith in 2018.
As for Breeland, the 28-year-old picked off 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the second quarter. The turnover helped the Chiefs take a 10-3 lead.
Breeland joined the Chiefs as a free agent in 2019 after one year on the Green Bay Packers. The former fourth-rounder spent the first four years of his career with the Redskins, starting 58 games. The Redskins chose not to re-sign him in 2018.
