Breaston's representative team believes the receiver can get the long-term contract he desires, along with the opportunity to be a team's No. 2 wide receiver.

It's important to note that no deal could have been agreed to this week between Breaston and the Steelers, anyway, since the team still needs to create space under the salary cap in order to make such a signing. Contracts also cannot be finalized until the new league year begins March 12.

Breaston is expected to meet with other NFL teams in the coming weeks.
