Wide receiver Steve Breaston’s tour of the AFC North starts on Wednesday with a visit to Cleveland.
Breaston will meet with the Browns on Wednesday and, per Mike Garafolo of the USA Today, will move onto the Steelers Thursday. Since he was released by the Chiefs, Breaston is free to sign a contract with another team at any time.
That could mean he doesn’t make it to his meeting with the Steelers, but that seems unlikely. With Mike Wallace apparently on the way out in Pittsburgh and Breaston’s old Arizona offensive coordinator Todd Haley calling the shots on offense for the Steelers, that’s probably an appealing enough landing spot for Breaston to wait out any Browns entreaties. His agent has met with Pittsburgh, so he likely has some idea of what they’re offering.
You probably can’t rule anything out, though. There’s been noise about the Browns, now owned by former Steelers minority owner Jimmy Haslam, making plays for free agents from other teams in the division this offseason. Beating the Steelers for Breaton’s services would add a little more intrigue to those potential battles with the start of free agency fast approaching.
Breaston has also reportedly drawn interest from the Cowboys, Titans and Lions, although no meetings are known to be scheduled with any of those clubs.
