You can tell this guy has played for Todd Haley before.
"I guess the biggest thing is I want to come in and do my part," WR Steve Breaston said.
"He knows what type of player I am and I know what type of coach he is," Breaston told Steven St. John. "He knows what he's getting as a player and I know what I'm getting as a coach."
So what did Haley tell Breaston in his recruiting pitch?
"He just basically told me I know what I'm getting into," Breaston said. "He told me about the weapons they had there. I watched a couple games last year, and we played against ya'll, so I know what type of team Kansas City is. He just told me the truth and that's always been coach Haley's approach -- tell you how it is. Like I said, I know what I'm getting from the coach and I want to be part of that."
It's a long way for Breaston, who worked with Haley in Arizona. At that time, Breaston says Haley didn't even think he would make it indicating that Haley thought he was just going to be a special teams guy.
And, speaking of special teams, will Breaston see a return-man role?
"I didn't have that conversation [with Haley] but I hope it comes up," Breaston said.
Finally, if a new player is coming to town, you know we need to address one topic -- KC barbecue.
"I don't know too much about Kansas City but I know you care about barbecue. I don't want to be 250-plus at the slot receiver. People are saying come to this barbecue spot so I guess you guys got good barbecue."
Oklahoma Joe's, Steve, Oklahoma Joe's.
