Steve Breaston has been in the NFL for four years. And for four years, Steve Breaston has been one of the league’s most underrated receivers. Early in his career, he couldn’t escape the shadow of Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. Last year, he dealt with the presence of Fitzgerald, a bad offense and a knee injury that limited him severely.
Now, he’ll have a chance to show how reliable and consistent he can be in a new setting. Breaston will join his former Cardinals offensive coordinator Todd Haley in Kansas City, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter (surprise!).
With Haley serving as his offensive coordinator in 2008, Breaston had his best season (77 catches, 1,006 yards, three touchdowns).
Although Dwayne Bowe is still the undisputed No. 1 wideout in K.C., he might not cast the same shadow Fitzgerald and Boldin did. If he can stay healthy, Breaston could break out. For a reported $9.5 million guaranteed, it’s not a major gamble for a Chiefs team that has a lot of cap space to work with.
