Redskins rookie cornerback Breeland to 'deal with the consequences' of marijuana citation

Washington Redskins rookie cornerback Bashaud Breeland says he'll "deal with the consequences" of being cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana on the team's final night in Richmond, Virginia, before the end of the training camp.

Breeland said Thursday he has talked to team president Bruce Allen and coach Jay Gruden about the situation and will handle it "just like everybody else who's ever dealt with a citation."

The 22-year-old fourth-round draft pick was cited Monday night on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University, about a dozen blocks from the Redskins training camp facility. Breeland practiced Tuesday morning before the team broke camp and was on the field again Thursday.

Gruden says any discipline will be handled in-house, adding: "Hopefully he learns from a terrible mistake."
