The Redskins had to say good bye to several key players as the 2018 NFL free agency period began.
Cornerback Bashaud Breeland was one of those players.
On Tuesday, Breeland reported agreed to a 3-year, $24 million deal with the Carolina Panthers.
But on Friday afternoon it was reported that Breeland failed a physical, which means he won't be signing with the Panthers, per Panthers reporter Bill Voth.

If this sounds familiar, it's because it is familiar.
Redskins wide receiver Ryan Grant intended on signing a four-year, $29 million deal with the Ravens. But a failed physical just a day before his introductory press conference meant a voided contract and back to the drawing board.
According to multiple reports, Breeland's failed physical was due to a recent non-football injury. Breeland and the Panthers could still come to an agreement, but the former Clemson star is now back to being a free agent and will have to pass a physical before officially signing with a new team.
According to ESPN's David Newton, Breeland injured his foot on vacation in the Dominican Republic and will need his skin grafted in order to repair the injury.
Cornerback Bashaud Breeland told me he cut the back of his left foot while in the Dominican Republic on March 4th. Said he will need to have skin grafted to repair the injury as he did when first injured in the fourth grade. He didn't believe the injury... https://t.co/OIwqz8cBx0— David Newton (@DNewtonespn) March 16, 2018
The Redskins were one of the NFL's most injured teams in 2017, and that trend appears to have extended to the offseason.
