Free agent Bashaud Breeland has visits with the Raiders and Chiefs next week.

Breeland met with the Colts and Arizona after his three-year deal with the Panthers voided, but this is his first interest since May. The Raiders have talked up Gareon Conley as a starter but Breeland would be an upgrade opposite Rashaan Melvin, while the Chiefs have question marks at corner after trading Marcus Peters. Four months removed from foot surgery, Breeland is likely going to have to settle for less than the $8M annually he landed earlier this offseason.

This was such a disappointing turn of events. This would've arguably been our best offseason had this gone according to plan and it would've set up our secondary to be a pretty doggone good element of our defense. Shame it didn't work out. Hoping Cockrell can fill this role or that Seymour has a remarkable improvement.

If we had kept Breeland, we might not have gotten Poe or Anderson. Maybe it works out for the best.

A healthy Poe/CJ is far more important to us than a not healthy Breeland. Our D-Line should be nasty this year. If Hall and the other young DEs step up a bit and play well enough in rotation, the DEs and DTs will be stocked and well rested. Peppers, Addison, Horton, Hall/Cox/Haynes, Short, Poe, Butler and Love is full of talent and deep.

If Cockrell or Jackson can man the CB2 well, it'll be fun to watch.

Don’t care. Cockrell was the right choice here. It was the smarter move. Unfortunately, can’t give Hurney credit since his hand was forced due to Breeland’s injury.

Regardless, when considering cap space/costs, Cockrell is by far the better, smarter option.

Can't say I care. Not going to get into who's better or not, because it is a moot point.

I’ve said it a dozen times.  Horton will break out this season.  His stats and overall performnce has been on the incline the last two seasons.  We went from a JAG to a good role player last season, making a couple of huge plays.  This is the year he breaks out with 8+ sacks.

It honestly wouldn't surprise me too much. I think he could get 3-5 sacks as a floor which would still be great. He's also huge in the run game.

I’d love that and I’d love to see to see Hall play well. It’s too bad we don’t have any more years on Horton. If he gets 8 sacks, he’s going to be expensive. He’s 28, so hopefully he plays well but we can keep him for a few more years at not too much. It’d be better if he’s still the 3rd guy next year behind Addison and Hall. I’m assuming Peppers will be done after we win the Super Bowl.

I've only heard you say that 5 times

I said it before. My source told me he has nerve damage in his foot. Teams unless desperate will pass because the amount of money he wants.

Who cares? He isn't a panther 

The Panthers chose to back out of the deal. They weren't required to do so. And it's being reported that he's healthy now.

If he actually has a really good year like was expected, there are people who are probably going to be royally pissed.

Not me though, honestly. When you judge a past decision, you always have to look at what you knew at the time. using that criteria, I think the team made the right call.
