He deleted the tweet roughly an hour after the game on October 10. However, there was collateral damage as many fans documented their reactions to Breeland.

Growing Feud

Breeland was a highly anticipated addition to the Vikings defense this offseason when he chose to sign with the team instead of returning to the Chiefs. But four games into the season and Breeland hasn’t lived up to his billing.
