I gotta say. I like Steve Breaston as a Chief. He talked with Nick Wright on 610 Sports this afternoon and it was pretty good stuff (until they started talking NBA for a minute which I just don't follow in the least bit).
From the surprises (he took the over on owning 125 pairs of shoes) to some of the changes this year (he says Todd Haley was a big reason he initially came to KC) to some actual football talk (he loves Dwayne Bowe's YAC), Breaston is a pretty entertaining interview. (Shortly after Breaston signed, a Cardinals reporter reached out to me unsolicited to say he's a great interview.)
610 Sports will podcast it shortly I assume but here's a snippet below that's, gasp, actually about football. Nick asked Breaston whether he ever hopes he could be a return man again.
"Yeah I do, I wish I could do more. I enjoyed it. It was something I was pretty good at. It was something I was always wanted to do and I always felt like I wanted to go back to doing it. I'll do whatever the coaches ask me, whatever role they had me at, I'd be at. If they need me to go back there and catch a couple punts and do what I know how to do, I'll do it."
There's some other good stuff from the interview you should check out (and we'll probably post parts of).
