Street heads to New York after the Jets placed fellow wideout Quinton Patton (foot) on injured reserve Monday. The former Pittsburgh standout has bounced around the AFC this offseason, as he was released by the Colts in May before landing a few days later with the Patriots, who cut him shortly thereafter. The Jets currently have an abundance of receivers on the training-camp roster, but will likely have to let go nearly half of them before the regular season begins, meaning Street will have to separate himself from the crowd if he wants to be around come September.
Street was released Wednesday by the Patriots, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.
Street was already facing an uphill battle to make the Patriots' roster due to crowding at receiver, and the team ultimately allowed to let the Pittsburgh product pursue an opportunity elsewhere after Andrew Hawkins was signed Wednesday. Street has appeared in 36 NFL games throughout his three-year career, so he shouldn't have to wait too long to get a look from another team.
Street was released by the Colts on Monday.
Street, who made one reception for 20 yards in five appearances with the Colts in 2016, also spent some time on the team's practice squad a season ago. A former college standout at Pittsburgh, Street's career has failed to take off since he was selected in the fifth round by the Cowboys in 2014, and the fact that he was cast aside by the Colts before training camp even began suggests he could struggle to win a roster spot with another team heading into the upcoming season.
In three games with the Colts earlier this season, Street caught one pass for 20 yards. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder will add depth to the Colts' wideout corps, but it would take a rash of injuries for him to surface on the fantasy radar. Still, this may indicate Donte Moncrief's hamstring injury will cause him to miss time.
