Well, it was weird when it happened to Ryan Grant, and it's doubly weird it's now happened to Bashaud Breeland, too.

The free agent corner became the second Redskins player in as many days to sign a contract with another team, only to have the offer rescinded for a failed physical.

According to reports, while in the Dominican Republican last week, Breeland cut the back of his foot, an injury severe enough it will require a skin graft. Because of the surgery, Breeland won't be able to pass a physical for several more months. Whether or not he is able to recoup the deal he had in place with Carolina -- three years, $24 million -- is unknown.

"Life will teach u (sh**) in ways u can't understand lol," Breeland wrote on Twitter Friday.

Together, Grant and Breeland's losses totaled $53 million. Grant's circumstances appeared to be a little different, although the Ravens did cite an ankle injury as reason for his failed physical. It's just, you know.
