The Rams Should Sign Steve Breaston

The Rams struck out with Titus Young, but would former KC Chief Steve Breaston fit the team?

The Kansas City Chiefs announced Tuesday to release wide receiver Steve Breaston in a move that was a surprise given that he was only due $4 million this season. The Chiefs might have wanted to go in a different direction by releasing him, but that could be a good thing for the other team in Missouri: the St. Louis Rams.

Breaston had a good career, well before last season. He played in 10 games in 2012, but surprisingly only caught 7 balls on 15 targets. Which is surprising because the season before he had 61 catches, 785 yards, and 2 touchdowns. That's a huge drop off, and there's really not a solid reason why. He wasn't hurt, and after researching I couldn't come across anything saying he was pulling a Titus Young. It looked like there could have been a rift between coach and player, unless you believe that Breaston didn't get the offense.

Here's a video where Breaston talked about the acquisition of him not learning the offense.

The Rams and Breaston would be a match. The team will most likely need a slot receiver, and Breaston wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. This is the type of veteran that the Rams need to bring in. He might not be a number one receiver, but a player with his production doesn't cross your path often. He would be a good 2-to-3 year cheap option for a team that doesn't have many options on offense.

Here's the reaction from Chiefs fans at Arrowhead Pride talking about Breaston's release.
