The Kansas City Chiefs have traded wide receiver Rod Streater to the San Francisco 49ers.
General manager John Dorsey and Trent Baalke must have each other on speed dial. Only one week after calling up the 49ers and acquiring Kenneth Acker, the Chiefs have now sent receiver Rod Streater to San Francisco for undisclosed compensation.
Streater was brought in this offseason on a one-year deal but couldn’t crack the starting lineup, falling behind both Albert Wilson and Chris Conley. The Chiefs were likely going to cut Streater with the presence of both Tyreek Hill and De’Anthony Thomas on the team, so getting anything for him is a good move.
Kansas City has finally gotten down to its final 53-man roster, with one of the deeper groups we have seen in years. Of course, Dorsey could be looking to upgrade a handful of positions depending on who becomes available.
The Chiefs are going with Hill, Conley, Thomas, Wilson, Demarcus Robinson and Jeremy Maclin as their six receivers, something of a minor shock. After Hill looked so good in camp, most believed that Thomas was toast. However, Hill was not great in the preseason games, opening the door.
