Wide receiver Steve Breaston, a free-agent-to-be, was matter-of-fact when it came to his future while doing an interview with XTRA 910’s Bickley and MJ this afternoon, saying of his chances to remain a Cardinal, “If I’m meant to be here, I’ll be here.”
“I enjoy playing in Arizona, I enjoy it a lot. I enjoy my teammates and I like living out there,” Breaston said from his hometown near Pittsburgh. “I want to be there. … There were a lot of issues about my knee but I know I will be ready for the season.”
Breaston said the knee that hampered him all season is fine now, but he also didn’t want to talk about it much, saying it meant nothing for him to say he was OK — only that he needed to prove it on the field. Of course, he’ll have to sign somewhere before he can really show that. He’s been working out with teammates like Adrian Wilson and said he is stronger in his legs, and admitted last year was inconsistent, in part because of the knee. He didn’t have any further surgery, but the rest made a big difference.
Breaston is one of the many potential free agents who will soon flood the market once the labor situation is settled. His chances of returning to the Cards may be based on his market value, and what other teams may offer.
“I’ve been patient,” Breaston said. “Hopefully if I am blessed, that day will come where I get what I deserve. … I want to be involved with this organization. It’s wait and see.”
