Released by the Chiefs in February, Breaston drew early interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns. Although he recently worked out for the Detroit Lions, the market has been quiet since a report in March suggested Breaston was considering Regenokine treatment in Germany to repair knee inflammation and early arthritic symptoms.
Breaston's knee must be showing signs of improvement, as he won Monday's tryout versus former Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Laurent Robinson.
Breaston's role with the Saints depends not only on his knee holding up, but also on the health of Colston and Morgan and the development of young receivers such as Nick Toon and Kenny Stills. Unless Breaston shows a natural rapport with Drew Brees throughout August, there's no guarantee that Breaston will earn a spot on the final roster.
