Found February 20, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Kansas City Chiefs announced the release of a pair of veterans yesterday, wide receiver Steve Breaston and tight end Kevin Boss. Neither of the moves comes as much of a surprise, as Andy Reid has begun the process of molding the roster he inherited. Breaston was one of the league’s top young receivers in Arizona when he suited up next to Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. In 2008 Breaston caught 77 passes for 1,006 yards and three touchdowns for the Cardinals. After totaling 61 receptions for 785 yards and two touchdowns in his first season with Kansas City in 2011, Breaston was limited to 10 games last season and caught only seven passes for 74 yards. While Breaston figures to sign on with a club this offseason, the future is not as certain for Boss. The veteran tight end had sustained several severe concussions throughout his career. One of these limited him to two games for the Chiefs last season.
