Agent: Mutual Interest Between Breaston, Steelers
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Former Woodland Hills High School and University of Michigan standout Steve Breaston could end up in a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform.
David Graves, Breaston’s agent – who is also his brother – told 93-7 The Fan’s Colin Dunlap on Wednesday:
“He is currently exploring all his options and we can’t really comment further on the situation. I can say that there is some mutual interest in joining several teams at this time and the Steelers are one of those teams. Steve doesn’t want to be a distraction at this point to any potential situations and we aren’t interested in commenting further.”
Breaston, 29, was cut by the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday.
Breaston played under current Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley in Arizona and followed him to Kansas City in 2011.
The Steelers are could potentially also be a landing spot for Breaston because the team is not expected to re-sign receiver Mike Wallace.
Breaston caught an average of 60 passes each season from 2008-11, but saw his role greatly diminish last season when he caught just seven passes for 74 yards and no touchdowns.
Breaston’s base salary for 2013 was $3.8 million, but the playmaker – who also is a gifted return man – could go for a significantly reduced rate.
