Saints add WR Steve Breaston
By Pat Yasinskas
Desperate for healthy wide receivers, the New Orleans Saints agreed to terms with veteran Steve Breaston on Monday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Starter Marques Colston has yet to practice this camp. Joe Morgan, who appeared to have the lead for the No. 3 receiver spot, went down with an unspecified injury in a scrimmage Saturday.
Breaston, 29, has spent six seasons in the league with Arizona and Kansas City, but was limited to only seven receptions with the Chiefs last year. Still, Breaston provides some insurance, even if it’s only temporary.
If Colston and Morgan get healthy, Breaston may not make the roster.
