The list of potential landing spots for free-agent wide receiver Steve Breaston appears to have shrunk.
With special-teams stalwart Josh Cribbs and frequent starter Mohamed Massaquoi slated to be unrestricted free agents, the Browns may need to bolster their wide receiver depth this offseason, and the 29-year-old Breaston seemed a logical candidate to add another veteran presence at a position where Cleveland is young. However, it appears Breaston, released by Kansas City earlier in February, will have to resume his NFL career elsewhere.
The Steelers could have their own depth issues at wide receiver if Mike Wallace departs in free agency. While Breaston isn’t a field-stretching threat in Wallace’s class, Breaston would help strengthen the Steelers’ hand at a key position.
