Steve Breaston Reportedly Not Signing With Cleveland; Opting for Knee Procedure

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

Last Sunday, it was reported that free agent wide receiver Steve Breaston would be visiting with the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers. He visited Cleveland on Thursday and then Pittsburgh on Friday, but left both cities without a contract. On Friday, Scott Petrak of the Morning-Journal tweeted the following:

Breaston seemed to have the credentials to be a decent acquisition for either city, as both teams are scheduled to lose receivers to free agency in a little over a week. Based on a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter on Saturday, though, there might be a reason why both teams passed on the veteran receiver:

Breaston is considering undergoing the Regenokine treatment in Germany in an effort to repair knee inflammation and early arthritic symptoms, according to sources. ... Breaston believes he could pass a physical now and sign a one-year deal with Pittsburgh, but he is said to be seeking a longer-term solution to his knee problems, said the source. He plans to continue to train and improve his knee until he is ready to sign with an NFL team.

At the very least, I still think the Browns' interest in Breaston shows that they are willing to explore other options at the position, instead of bringing back Mohamed Massaquoi or Joshua Cribbs right away.
