Quick Hits: Steelers to gauge Breaston’s interest in Pittsburgh; Talk of fractured locker room overblown?

*Wide receiver Steve Breaston has interest in Pittsburgh, or at least that’s what Breaston’s reps want out there. Due to the connection to Todd Haley and fit in his offense, the Steelers plan to gauge what Breaston is looking for from a role to money as the Steelers head into free agency next month. There appears to be some interest from the Steelers. Breaston’s representatives plan to meet with the Steelers this week in Indianapolis. Breaston who had just 7 receptions last season, made $2.05 million in 2012.
Breaston spoke to a Kansas City radio station on Wednesday and was asked whether he would have an interest in playing for Haley again. “I don’t know what the future holds for me,” Breaston told 610 Sports in KC. “I just think that I came out there and I was with coach Haley, and the situation I’m in now you just have sit back and look at things, see what opportunities I may have and what’s going to benefit me.
“I want to get back to winning games. That’s one of the big things, that’s going to be a big part of my decision-making. Going somewhere where I can compete and have the opportunity to help the team win games. I’m going to look at the situation, see what I have in front of me. If I’m blessed to be back home {Pittsburgh} and go with coach Haley and help contribute to win games then I’m fine with it. Right now I just got released the other day so I wasn’t really thinking too much about this process. We’ll figure it out sooner or later.”

*Steelers officials feel talk of the Steelers having a “fractured” locker room from the players is being overblown following Ryan Clark’s comments earlier this week and Antonio Brown’s yesterday. “Whether you win the Super Bowl or go 8-8, there’s no 100 percent harmonious locker room,” Kevin Colbert said today at the NFL combine via Gerry Dulac of the Post-Gazette. “I don’t care where it is. That’s exemplified more when you’re 8-8. Quite honestly, I’m not concerned about our locker room. Coach Tomlin and I had an opportunity to speak to our players since the season ended. We have a very good finger on the pulse of where we stand. From a team standpoint, we’re comfortable with that.”
