The Pittsburgh Steelers appeared to have an interest in free agent wide receiver Steve Breaston early in the offseason following his early release from the Kansas City Chiefs, but the report made by John Clayton of ESPN stating he would likely sign after June 1st never came to fruition.
On Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports via Twitter that Breaston has agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints following him working out for them earlier in the day.
Breaston reportedly made a free agent visit to Pittsburgh back in May, but the team might have found one of his knees as not being up to par.
Breaston, a Woodland Hills graduate, played for offensive coordinator Todd Haley when both were with the Chiefs and the Arizona Cardinals, so the link to the Steelers was an obvious one.
The Steelers seem more than comfortable with their current situation at the wide receiver position now that have drafted both Markus Wheaton and Justin Brown. Brown is not a lock to make the roster at this point, but he has reportedly impressed enough during training camp to warrant a spot on the Steelers eight man practice squad should he not.
