Rod Streater signs 1-year contract with Kansas City Chiefs

New, comments

The one-year deal looks to be loaded with incentives.

The Kansas City Chiefs have made their decision on a new veteran wide receiver with the news that Rod Streater has inked a 1-year deal with the team.

The Chiefs' interest in Streater leaked several days ago, although a formal visit didn't happen until Saturday. The team apparently liked what they saw from the visit, because Streater will leave Kansas City as the team's newest addition.

The Chiefs also hosted a visit with Jeremy Kerley, a returner and slot receiver formerly of the New York Jets, on Friday. Steater himself had checked out other teams, including the Jets and New England Patriots.

Streater, who recently turned 28, has only caught 10 passes since the 2013 season. That means the aforementioned $4.8 million deal is likely loaded with incentives. It will be interesting to see the guaranteed dollars in the deal.

Streater enjoyed what was believed to be a breakout season in 2013 with 60 catches for 888 yards and 4 touchdowns for the Oakland Raiders. It will be interesting to see how Streater's 2015 campaign is explained by Chiefs GM John Dorsey, since Streater was a healthy scratch for the entire season with the Raiders.

Streater also missed the majority of the 2014 season with a foot injury, limiting him to only 3 regular season games.
