The contract for Kansas City Chiefs free agent signing WR Rod Streater was reported as a one-year deal worth up to $4.8 million. My first reaction is that $4.8 million is a pretty good deal for a guy who has played in four games over the past two seasons.
As it turns out, there's more to the story (there always is). The deal is more reasonable than that. It's really a one-year, $810,000 deal with more available in incentives.
Rod Streater Chiefs deal: $810,000, $10,000 signing bonus, $760,000 salary, $100,000 of base fully gtd; $1M TDs, catches, yards incentive— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) March 14, 2016
I don't know the details of the rest of the incentives but I love incentives in a contract, especially for someone like Streater coming off two injury-marred seasons. This deal is a small one that the Chiefs won't think twice about if Streater ends up busting. But if he comes in and plays well, he can earn more and be rewarded for it. Overall, it seems like fair contract - buy low, sell high for the Chiefs.
