The Kansas City Chiefs added to their receivers this weekend, inking veteran Rod Streater to a one-year deal for up to $4.8 million, with much of that coming from incentives.
Streater looked like he was going to be a good player for the Oakland Raiders back in 2013, catching 60 passes for 888 yards and four touchdowns. However, Streater fractured his foot in 2014 and was limited to only three games. Last year, Streater was ill throughout training camp and sank to the bottom of the depth chart. However, he was given the Ed Block Courage Award by his teammates, which signifies inspiration, courage and sportsmanship.
Look for the Chiefs to continue scouring the market for receivers to play alongside Jeremy Maclin. Currently, the depth chart has Maclin at the top with Streater, Chris Conley and Albert Wilson competing for the other starting spot. De’Anthony Thomas and Frankie Hammond Jr. round out the corps, with both getting the majority of their snaps on special teams.
Kansas City could (and should) be looking for more help at the position. Streater could be the answer if he’s healthy, but that is not a risk general manager John Dorsey should be willing to take if there are other affordable options in free agency and the draft.
