Report: Steve Breaston To Visit With Steelers Tuesday
Eric Metz, the agent for free agent wide receiver Steve Breaston, met with the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday at the NFL combine in Indianapolis and on Tuesday his client will be in Pittsburgh for a visit.
According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today, Breaston is also expected to visit the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday. The Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys are two other teams that reportedly have interest in Breaston.
Should the Steelers wind up signing the 29 year old Breaston he would then be reunited with offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who he played for with the Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs. Breaston had his two best seasons playing for Haley.
Breaston had signed a five-year contract with the Chiefs in 2011 but was released last week after only two seasons with the team.
Breaston could help offset the loss of wide receiver Mike Wallace, who is expected to be gone in a matter of weeks via free agency.
ETA: Ed Bouchette reports via Twitter that Breaston will meet with the Steelers in Pittsburgh on Thursday or Friday and that the day is not settled yet.
