Streater, now 29 years old, spent just one season in San Francisco where he caught 18 passes for 191 yards and two touchdowns on 27 targets throughout his 2016 campaign. The Bills have already added to their receiving corps earlier this offseason, drafting Zay Jones (knee) in the second round in addition to the signing of Andre Holmes from Oakland. Streater figures to compete for the No. 4 spot in the pecking order, with Philly Brown and Brandon Tate -- among others -- also in the picture.
The Vikings, Colts, Seahawks, Browns and 49ers have all expressed interest in Streater, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Unsigned through the first two weeks of free agency, Streater should find a home prior to the NFL Draft, though he may have to settle for a one-year contract and a shot to compete for a roster spot. He only caught 18 passes for 191 yards in 16 games with the 49ers last season, handling a minor role in one of the league's worst offensive attacks. His 2013 stat line with Oakland -- 60 catches for 888 yards -- is now a distant memory, with the 29-year-old wideout tallying only 28 receptions over the past three years.
Streater was targeted just once Sunday, pulling in the pass for five yards in a loss to the Seahawks.
Streater spent the majority of the season as the 49ers' fourth or fifth receiver, but he saw a slightly expanded role down the stretch with 132 yards and two touchdowns in the final six games of the season. While there wasn't much there from a fantasy perspective, the veteran wideout showcased his plus size and athleticism for potential suitors this offseason. He would need to earn a starting job out of camp to land on fantasy radars.
Streater caught six of seven targets for 63 yards in Saturday's win over the Rams.
Three of Streater's six catches came on the 49ers' game-winning drive, including a 10-yard touchdown off of a quick slant. The veteran receiver entered Saturday with just one game this season with more than two catches, but he's ending 2016 on a high note - with touchdown catches in back to back games.
The fifth-year pro recorded high-water marks in receptions and yardage while also snaring a season-long 25-yard catch. Streater remains behind Torrey Smith, Jeremy Kerley and Quinton Patton on the depth chart, but he received added opportunity Sunday when Patton exited the game with a concussion. If Patton remains sidelined for the Week 13 tilt against the Bears, the speedy Streater, who logged 60 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns with the Raiders back in 2013, would presumably step into the third receiver role.
