Patriots hosting Rod Streater on Thursday


The Jets are scheduled to visit with wide receiver Rod Streater on Friday, but they won’t be the first AFC East team to talk to Streater this week.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Streater joined several other players visiting the Patriots on Thursday. Running back James Starks, running back Benny Cunningham, tight end Clay Harbor and wide receiver Chris Hogan were the others meeting with the team.

Streater only played in one game for the Raiders last season as he fell out of favor on offense during Jack Del Rio’s first year as head coach. A foot injury limited him to three games in 2014, so he’s probably not going to land much more than a chance to make a team this offseason.

The Patriots released Brandon LaFell early this month, leaving them with Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Keshawn Martin, Chris Harper and Aaron Dobson under contract at the position at the moment.
