The to release wide receiver announced TuesdaySteve Breastonn 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.
