Rod Streater agrees to terms with the Chiefs


Free agent receiver Rod Streater is heading to Kansas City.

Streater has reached an agreement on a one-year deal with the Chiefs, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The contract could pay him up to $4.8 million.

The 28-year-old Streater, who spent the first four years of his NFL career in Oakland, visited the Jets and Patriots before agreeing to terms with the Chiefs.

After making the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2012, Streater had a very good rookie year, with 39 catches for 584 yards and three touchdowns. His second season was even better, with 60 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns. But a foot injury limited him to just three games in 2014, and he played in only one game in 2015.

If Streater can stay healthy and return to his prior form, he can make a significant impact in Kansas City.

  1. Definitely a class act player and team mate. Would have loved to see him get a chance to play with crab/cooper. I think he would have blow up. Sorry to see you go to KC but hope you succeed.

  2. I don’t know how you can say he’s great. He has something like 100 yards receiving the past 2 seasons. I actually liked Streater but the guy was inactive for 15 games last year. It wasn’t like he suffered an injury (his foot injury the prior year had nothing to do with not playing in ’15), which is why he only played in one game. He was a healthy scratch and please stop saying how the Raiders are stacked at WR. Seth Roberts was the #3 WR and he’s nothing special (he ran bad routes constantly). Streater was in the doghouse with the coaches and it’s anyone’s guess. He never seemed like a problem child or anything like that. He doesn’t play special teams so that could be a factor why Holmes got to play or maybe he had some mysterious illness because during a large portion of training camp he wasn’t practicing for some unknown reason. This contract must be heavily involved in bonus’s he will more than likely never achieve. Good luck Rod. Any receiver that can get nearly 900 yards with Pryor as their QB deserves at least a shot.

  3. Good luck to you Rod. raider Nation will miss you. Great guy on and off the field.

  4. SO when the Chiefs & Raiders play, does this mean Sean Smith has to cover Streeter?

  5. He’s a class act but a mediocre player. Fortunately, the Raiders now can put better talent on the field. Go Raiders!

  6. Street never gave the new coaching regime any reason to offer him anything. Abracadabra Holmes, or Snake Roberts are wayyy more dependable anyways.

  7. He is neither “great” or “mediocre”, he’s a good WR and a team player.

    Too bad he no longer has a QB to get him the ball.

  8. Wish you nothing but the best Rod! (except when you play the raiders) Feel bad for you that you dropped to the #6 WR on the Raiders…..Hopefully you can become the #1 on the Chiefs.

    Go Raiders
