Jeff Moffett/Icon SMIFormer Michigan WR Steve Breaston will enter his sixth NFL season in 2012.Catching Up With ... is an occasional series at WolverineNation where we chat with former Michigan football and basketball players to find out what they have been up to since they left the Wolverines.
Steve Breaston made a college and NFL career out of being multifaceted. While he plays receiver -- and is a good one -- Breaston is mostly known for his ability as a returner. While at Michigan, Breaston had 127 punt returns for 1,599 yards and four touchdowns along with 81 kick returns for 1,993 yards -- all school records.
When he wasn't returning kicks and punts, Breaston still caught 156 passes (fifth all-time) for 1,696 yards and 10 touchdowns. He left Michigan in 2007 and was selected in the fifth round by the Arizona Cardinals, where he spent four seasons before heading to Kansas City prior to the 2011 season. This season, he'll have a familiar face near him as the Chiefs drafted Junior Hemingway in the seventh round in April.
