Steve Breaston

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.

Re: Steve Breaston

We knew that Laurent Robinson was set to work out for the Saints on Monday, but he wasn’t the only veteran wide receiver showing off his talents at Saints camp.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reports that Steve Breaston was also working out for New Orleans and that his workout was impressive enough for him to earn a contract with the team. Presumably that leaves Robinson to hunt for work elsewhere, a task that has been fruitless through visits with several teams since camp opened.

Breaston was cut by the Chiefs at the start of the offseason after catching just seven passes in 2012, the second year of a five-year, $23 million deal that he signed before the 2011 season. He’s visited with a few different teams, but questions about the condition of his knee may have contributed to his continued unemployment.

The Saints saw wide receiver Joe Morgan get hurt during this weekend’s scrimmage, which is problematic since Morgan has been installed in Marques Colston’s usual spot in the starting lineup on the team’s initial depth chart. Colston is on the PUP list because of a foot injury, so there’s a need for bodies at the position and Breaston could wind up carving out more of a role than that if he can regain the form that saw him average 60 catches a year from 2008 through 2011.

Re: Steve Breaston

I hope he gets cut

Simply because it means that the rookies look decent and the vets are injury free

Re: Steve Breaston

Colston still has plenty of gas in the tank but the injuries must be starting to take there toll.Im hopeful with Toon and Stills being the long term 1-2 WR pairing.A few years away yet though. Colston may not have a probowl but he has another superbowl in him yet.

Re: Steve Breaston

I'm not worried about Colston, I just don't like the signing because it means less time for Stills and Toon to work with Drew
