Silly season is obviously going on now. After visiting with the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday, there’s been a bit of a reversal in the Steve Breaston narrative. On Thursday and Friday, both the Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot and Elyria Chronicle-Telgram’s Scott Petrak respectively tweeted that the Browns would be unlikely to sign the free agent wide receiver. The 29-year-old, who played sparingly with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012, had previously visited with AFC North rival Pittsburgh earlier in the week as well. In addition to these reports on the receiver’s final destination, ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter brought in other big news on Breaston this afternoon. Here’s an excerpt from his article: “Former Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Steve Breaston is considering undergoing the Regenokine treatment in Germany in an effort to repair knee inflammation and early arthritic symptoms, according to sources. Breaston had visits this past week with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns. It is the same treatment that players such as Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez underwent to help save their careers. During the procedure, a small cup of blood is removed from the patient, and then it is incubated at a slightly elevated temperature and spun in a centrifuge to make serum that’s injected to combat inflammation that may resolve the player’s irritation.” Schefter wrote that Breaston hopes to continue to train until he is ready to sign with an NFL team. But for now, you can cross the Browns out of the running and we’ll see if they continue to look toward other free agent options at this position.
