Breaston agrees to leave Arizona, play alongside Bowe in K.C.

Steve Breaston has agreed to terms on a free-agent contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported Wednesday, citing a league source.

Breaston caught 187 passes for 2,528 yards and seven touchdowns in four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. He'll be reunited with Chiefs coach Todd Haley, who served as the Cardinals' offensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008.

In Arizona's Super Bowl season of 2008, Breaston had career highs of 77 catches for 1,006 yards. Bothered by a knee injury much of last season, Breaston caught 47 passes for 718 yards.

Breaston fortifies a Chiefs receiving corps that already includes All-Pro Dwayne Bowe. But Breaston's departure leaves the Cardinals without a consistent receiving threat alongside star Larry Fitzgerald.
