Saints released WR Steve Breaston.
At age 30, Breaston must have nothing left in the tank after several knee injuries the past five seasons. He couldn't beat out rookie Kenny Stills or second-year WR Nick Toon behind Lance Moore and Marques Colston. Mon, Aug 19, 2013 05:14:00 PM

The New Orleans Times-Picayune expects Steve Breaston to get a "long look" as the Saints' No. 3 receiver.

It's not an ideal fit, as coach Sean Payton typically prefers his No. 3 wideout to be a lid-lifting burner, a la the injured Joe Morgan. Breaston was also slowed by chronic knee inflammation last season. It would be unwise to make fantasy plans for the 30-year-old wideout before watching him in the preseason. Rookie Kenny Stills is also in the mix for No. 3 duties.

Saints signed WR Steve Breaston to a one-year contract.

Breaston, 30, appeared in just 10 games with Kansas City last year, making four starts and catching seven balls for 74 yards. Coach Sean Payton's Saints offense has often featured two situational streak-route runners when it's been at its best, a la Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson. They draw over-the-top coverage and free up the underneath. The Saints have Joseph Morgan, but lack an established second. Breaston will battle Kenny Stills and Saalim Hakim.

The Boston Globe reports the Saints are expected to sign free agent WR Steve Breaston.

Breaston would compete for a roster spot in New Orleans. His addition will also add depth for training camp with Marques Colston nursing a foot injury.

The Lions will work out free agent WRs Steve Breaston and Chaz Schilens, in addition to Laurent Robinson this week.

Breaston hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest since meeting with the Steelers and Browns in late February. Teams have shied away from the soon-to-be 30-year-old as he works his way back from knee inflammation. Schilens has met with the Titans and Patriots since hitting free agency.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette reports the Steelers signing free agent WR Steve Breaston "won't happen."

The Steelers showed interest in Breaston following his late February release from the Chiefs, but they're no longer interested. Breaston battled persistent knee inflammation last season, and even considered Regenokine therapy. The soon-to-be 30-year-old hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest in nearly four months.

Free agent WR Steve Breaston doesn't need Regenokine knee therapy.

Breaston was advised that "he's fine." Breaston has been battling knee issues for the past few seasons, and teams have been wary of signing him since his release from the Chiefs last month. It appears Breaston will just rest the knee.
Thu, Mar 7, 2013 01:34:00 PM

Free agent Steve Breaston is considering Regenokine therapy in an effort to cure persistent knee inflammation and early arthritic symptoms.

This explains a lot. Breaston has battled right knee problems on and off since 2009. They significantly affected his effectiveness late in his Cardinals tenure, and likely cost him explosiveness in Kansas City. Breaston has visited the Browns and Steelers, but neither signed him -- most likely because his right knee is a major issue again. Regenokine has been undergone by Kobe Bryant, Grant Hill, Alex Rodriguez, and most recently Gosder Cherilus.

The Steelers will not sign free agent Steve Breaston right now.

Breaston visited Pittsburgh on Friday after meeting with the Browns on Thursday, but neither team is interested in signing him at the moment. "[The Steelers] may revisit him later if he remains unsigned," says beat writer Ed Bouchette. Breaston will continue his tour, but it's uncertain where the next stop is.

The Browns are not expected to try to sign free agent WR Steve Breaston.

Breaston met with the Browns on Wednesday and left without an offer. Entering his age-30 season, he wouldn't have been an upgrade on Josh Gordon or Greg Little. Breaston will meet with old friend Todd Haley and the Steelers either Thursday or Friday.
Thu, Feb 28, 2013 12:12:00 PM

Free agent Steve Breaston will meet with the Browns on Thursday and the Steelers on Friday.

Breaston was originally expected to visit the Steelers first. Any time a player makes a visit, there's a chance they won't leave, so it gives the Browns a leg up on Pittsburgh. If the money is equal, though, it would make far more sense for Breaston to reunite with his former head coach and offensive coordinator Todd Haley in Pittsburgh.
Tue, Feb 26, 2013 05:50:00 PM

Free agent WR Steve Breaston will meet with the Steelers on Thursday or Friday.

Breaston is from the Pittsburgh area, knows offensive coordinator Todd Haley from their time together with the Cardinals and free agent Mike Wallace is moving on. The fit almost seems too perfect. The Cowboys, Browns and Titans also reportedly have interest in Breaston.
Tue, Feb 26, 2013 12:44:00 PM

League sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Cowboys have shown interest in free agent Steve Breaston.

Owner Jerry Jones went on the record Sunday saying Miles Austin will be back with the team in 2013. That means the Cowboys would be trying to woo Breaston as a strict No. 3 wideout. It's a tough sell as the Steelers can offer a reunion with OC Todd Haley, a chance to compete with Emmanuel Sanders for the No. 2 job and an opportunity for Breaston to return to his hometown of Pittsburgh.

In addition to the Steelers and Browns, the Titans have "some interest" in free agent Steve Breaston.

Breaston has already visited the Steelers and will meet with the Browns on Tuesday. The Titans are not known to have set up a visit yet. Breaston, 29, is a middling talent despite solid statistics posted with Kurt Warner at quarterback in Arizona. He's a No. 3-caliber wide receiver at absolute best.

Free agent Steve Breaston will meet with the Browns on Tuesday.

The Steelers met with Breaston's agent at the Combine, but the sides apparently won't work out a deal in Indy. CBS' Jason La Canfora considers Pittsburgh the "favorites" to land the former Chief and Cardinal. NFL.com's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports Breaston has also drawn interest from the Cowboys, Lions, and Titans.
