Romeo Crennel considers Steve Breaston a 'backup' wide receiver

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

According to Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel, Steve Breaston is a 'backup' wide receiver right now, just one year removed from signing a five-year, $22.5 million deal with the team.

It's no surprise that things aren't going well right now for the Kansas City Chiefs. On Monday, head coach Romeo Crennel came out and said that Steve Breaston is now considered a 'backup' wide receiver after having played just 10 snaps in the past two games.

That may sound pretty obvious to anyone based on those snap count numbers, but he's still listed above Jon Baldwin on the depth chart and he's in his second year of a five-year extension he signed before last season.

This can't even be considered a bad thing considering it means that more snaps are going towards former first-round pick, Jon Baldwin. While Baldwin hasn't exactly lived up to his first-round billing just yet, shaky quarterback play and slow development are contributing factors. The jury is still out on Baldwin and this is just a way of showing that they're committed to him right now.

The emergence of Dexter McCluster as a slot receiver also plays into this as the Chiefs moving towards more 3-WR sets than originally planned with Jon Baldwin and Dwayne Bowe taking the other two spots at wide receiver. It seems as if Breaston is the odd-man out right now.
