The Steelers have salary cap issues that aren’t going away, and they will lose their top receiver Mike Wallace as well. However, they may be able to land a former 1,000 yard receiver that fits their offense like a glove. According to Jamison Hensly of ESPN.com, in an attempt to shore up their receiving corps, the Steelers may make a move for freshly released Kansas City receiver, Steve Breaston. Breaston was a mainstay in Haley’s offense for the Cardinals and Chiefs.from 2008 to 2011, Breaston averaged 60 catches before having a dreadful 2012 campaign. Breaston could serve as a suitable replacement for Mike Wallace, and his versatility is something the Steelers offense needs. His familiarity with the offense would make for a quick transition, and when he’s at his peak, Breaston is a 1,000 yard receiver. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
