As Bashaud Breeland continues to look for a new home, his free-agent tour is set to hit two more stops this week. 

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported that Breeland is scheduled to meet with the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday and the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday.

Breeland had reportedly agreed to a three-year, $24 million deal with the Carolina Panthers back in March, but the team voided the deal after the cornerback failed his physical. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the 26-year-old defensive back cut his foot in a non-football injury and it wound up getting infected, making him unable to pass a physical.

That injury is no longer a concern, per Demovsky.

Since being drafted by Washington in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL draft, Breeland has worn only one uniform as a pro. In four seasons in the nation's capital, he piled up 271 combined tackles, eight interceptions, 59 passes defensed, one sack, seven forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one touchdown.

Breeland totaled 50 tackles, 20 passes defended (12th-most in the NFL) and one interception last season. Oh, and he found the end zone for the first time in his career. Not only that, but he piled up 208 yards on kickoff returns, with a long of 35 yards.

Indianapolis ranked 28th in the league against the pass last year, with Arizona finishing 14th. The Cardinals, of course, released Tyrann Mathieu earlier this offseason, leading the veteran defensive back to sign with the Houston Texans.

When free agency began, Breeland was one of the top players at his position on the market. The foot injury has prevented him from a joining a team, however. But as long as he's healthy, he should be able to help a secondary.
