After going undrafted, former USC linebacker Morgan Breslin may be in line to collect between $750,000 to $1 million as the first collegiate football player to receive a payout on a loss of value insurance policy, according to an industry source. Breslin, a 6-foot-1, 240-pound pass-rush specialist, missed more than 75 percent of USC’s games over the past two years after finishing third in the nation in sacks (13) during the 2012 season. He signed a free-agent deal with the San Francisco 49ers this past weekend. The potential first-day pick two seasons ago took out a loss of value policy in the summer of 2013 that provided him with $2 million to $3 million worth of coverage in the event an injury caused his draft stock to fall. After missing all but five games during the 2013 season due to a sports hernia, Breslin underwent hip surgery and wasn’t invited to the NFL scouting combine in February.
Industry sources state it is unclear how much Breslin will collect, but they did say there were currently no policies for drop in value based on stupid.
