The Kansas City Chiefs released Steve Breaston yesterday and now the WR is speaking out about his strange 2012 season.
Breaston will appear live today on The Danny Parkins show on 610 Sports Radio at noon central time today but as a teaser, Parkins read a text message from Breaston that explained the situation from Breaston’s point of view.
Here is part of what Breaston sent to Parkins:
There may be an argument that I got my shot early in the season but I really wasn’t playing full-time. I was always switching in and out every other possession. Then it was a three-man rotation later into the season. On top of that, not even being involved in the game-plan. I seen it coming, but maybe I just didn’t want to believe it. And I would be given a chance to move up by continuing to make plays in practice. So I went about my work and I waited for my time but never got a a bigger opportunity. In the offseason, with me not being able to give the opportunity to play in the slot, I got little to no reps in the slot, then we had to get J.B ready for the season then D-Bowe’s eventually coming back and you wold think he would fall back into his role.
That is not Breaston’s entire text but it was as much as I could get listening live. But the general idea of what he is getting at is clear. Breaston seems to feel he was kind of phased out of the offense.
It was an interesting situation because Breaston was moved to the outside in the offseason while Dwayne Bowe was sitting out training camp. I think that is what Breaston means when he says he didn’t get many reps in the slot. Then once Bowe came back and Baldwin was getting his reps there wasn’t as much room for Breaston.
This is what we’ve got for you so far. We’ll be listening live to Breaston when he appears on the show in a few minutes.
