Kansas City Chiefs Players On The Roster Bubble – Number Five: Rod Streater
When the Kansas City Chiefs signed Rod Streater, many people assumed he was an instant lock for the #2 position in the wide receiver corps. While it’s easy to get excited about the player Streater once was, it’s wrong to presume that’s the same player we’re getting now. Streater’s last two seasons were defined by struggles with injuries, performance, and in the locker room.
Already the Chiefs have him working primarily out of the slot, instead of that #2 role. Financially speaking, it would be a much better scenario for the team if he were to end up not making the roster. Those are two very big factors working against him.
Rod Streater must prove to the Chiefs coaching staff that he is able to step in right away and help the team win. Players on “prove it” deals are always expendable, so Streater must prove that he is anything but. If Streater has a good camp, he could be a solid weapon in the Chiefs passing game. If he can’t distinguish himself though, this could be the end of his run in the NFL.
