Might as well promote yourself at every opportunity. A reported four-game suspension for Chiefs cornerback gave him an opportunity to get out his message.
Bashaud Breeland’ suspension became official on Wednesday, prompting an apology from Kansas City’s starting cornerback:
“As previously announced by the League, I have received a 4 game suspension for off-the-field matters,” Breeland wrote on Instagram. “I post this today because I want to apologize, publicly, to the entire Chiefs organization, my coaches, teammates, family and fans.
“I accept full responsibility for my actions, and I look forward to getting back on the field with my teammates to defend our Super Bowl title.”
Breeland attached a snippet from his rap video “Never” to his apology:
Breeland was arrested back in April at a South Carolina gas station.
He faced multiple misdemeanor charges that consisted of resisting arrest, the transport of alcohol in motor vehicle with a broken seal, an open container of beer or wine in motor vehicle, possession of 28 grams or less of marijuana or 10 grams of hash, and driving without a license.
Video of the arrest emerged showing a police officer pulling his gun on Breeland as Breeland tried to get into his Range Rover.
However his suspension wasn’t related to that incident. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported at the time that Breeland was in the process of appealing the four-game ban for a substance-abuse policy violation prior his arrest.
Nothing says I’m sorry like dropping a rap video.
