Former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Rod Streater has departed for an AFC West rival

Former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Rod Streater has departed for an AFC West rival

Veteran wide receiver Rod Streater found himself on a Raiders squad with a much improved wide receiver corps last year, only getting onto the field for one game and hauling in just one pass. 

It's not surprised that the unrestricted free agent departed for another team, but general manager Reggie McKenzie probably doesn't like seeing the AFC West rival Chiefs coming to an agreement with him.

Streater agreed to a one-year contract with the Chiefs worth up to $4.8 million, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

The former undrafted wide receiver led the Raiders with 888 yards and four touchdowns in 2013, but then missed 13 games the next year and struggled to find playing time last season. Now though, the 6-foot-3, 216 pound wide receiver could easily find himself starting opposite of Jeremy Maclin as the Chiefs number-two receiver.

He finishes his career in the Silver & Black with 109 receptions for 1,564 yards and eight touchdowns in 36 games.
