Chiefs free agency rumor: WR Rod Streater, former Raider, drawing interest in KC

New, comments

Receiver has been a spot the Kansas City Chiefs are likely to add some more competition and that could come in the form of former Raiders WR Rod Streater. The KC Star's Terez Paylor is reporting the Chiefs are interested in Streater, who went undrafted in 2012 and spent the next four seasons in Oakland.

Levi Damien of our Raiders blog, Silver and Black Pride, tweeted us to say that Streater is a good under-the-radar option.

Levi expanded on him here: "Streater has flown under the radar because of a some bad luck the past couple seasons, making it easy for some to forget that he was once the Raiders' top receiver. In 2013 he had caught 60 passes for 888 yards and four touchdowns. Heading into the 2014 season, he was the team's No. 1 receiver, but he broke his foot in Week 2 and was placed on injured reserve."

This would be a classic GM John Dorsey signing - buy low, sell high. You can look at former Chiefs like Geoff Schwartz or Tyvon Branch who fit this mold of an injured player looking to build himself back up.. The Chiefs do need some competition at receiver with Albert Wilson and Chris Conley the two players behind Jeremy Maclin. Ideally one of those two beat out anyone else but competition isn't a bad thing.
