The Dolphins were back on the practice field Sunday morning with an other preseason game approaching later this week. And, it’s obvious that they still have doubts about the quality of depth in their defensive backfield.

With Veteran Tony Lippett battling a foot injury suffered last week, and inexperience among a couple of the others, the Fins will looking at veteran free agent for possible help.

Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero had the update Saturday that Miami is going to be wooing Bashaud Breeland:

Breeland is a former fourth round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins and played there for the last four seasons. Breeland has 58 career starts, which is the kind of experience that Miami is looking for. Plus, he has 59 passes defended to go along with eight career interceptions.

The good news for Miami and any of the other teams that he will be negotiating with is that Breeland is affordable. He made $1.8 million in the backloaded final year of his rookie deal. His four year salary average was around $700,000.

The Dolphins secondary, including Bobby McCain, Xavien Howard and Cordrea Tankersley and the rest of the secondary struggled throughout the first half Thursday night. This as Bucs QBs Ryan Fitzpartick and Jameis Winston combined to go 17-21 for 157 yards. And they led three scoring drives building a 16-3 second quarter lead.

As the report states, several teams will be talking to Breeland. However, at this stage with camps already into their third week, Breeland will likely only be able to get a one year deal from whatever team that he ends up agreeing to sign with.

So that is in Miami’s favor, while they continue to try to solidify the back end of their defense, as the preseason moves on.

It remains to be seen how much the lure of South Florida, etc. will appeal to him.
