Report: Steve Breaston To The Chiefs On Five Year Deal

New, comments

Well, Kansas City Chiefs fans, GM Scott Pioli did it. 

According to Jim Trotter of SI.com, WR Steve Breaston agreed to a five-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs that includes $9.5 million guaranteed. No word yet on the total value of the contract.

With the connection to Todd Haley -- both were in Arizona in 2008 -- we figured this signing was a possibility. It became a little more real when reports out of Arizona indicated the Chiefs were the front-runners.

This means that the Chiefs now have the three B's -- Bowe, Baldwin and Breaston. Not a bad starting three, huh?

Breaston's best season in his four-year career came in 2008 when he caught 77 passes for 1,006 yards. His offensive coordinator at the time was of course Haley.

I'm liking this move a lot, folks. This'll give QB Matt Cassel another weapon on offense to pair with the league's top rushing attack. 

Keep in mind, this won't become officially official until Friday night at 5:00 p.m. (Arrowhead time) when players are allowed to sign with teams. For now, this is a verbal commitment.
