Streater signed a contract with the Browns on Monday, Zac Jackson of The Athletic Cleveland reports. The addition of Streater replenishes the Browns' depth at receiver after the team traded away Josh Gordon (hamstring) earlier in the day. Most recently with the Bills, Streater is now on to his fourth team in as many years and will provide Cleveland with a valuable veteran presence in an otherwise youthful position group. It's unclear how he'll fit into the offensive picture, though Streater's potential production would more likely come at the expense of Rashard Higgins or Antonio Callaway than Jarvis Landry.
Streater was part of Saturday's roster cutdown, John Murphy of the Bills' official site reports. The Bills kept Andre Holmes as their veteran depth option, then used the fifth and sixth spots on rookies Robert Foster and Ray-Ray McCloud. Streater has enough experience where he'll probably be given another chance somewhere once injuries strike around the league.
Streater, who missed all of last season due to a dislocated big toe suffered in the preseason, is healthy again and has been practicing with the second unit, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. Streater hasn't been on the fantasy radar since 2013, when he tallied 888 yards and four touchdowns with the Raiders. The Bills really liked him last summer, as he had a shot at a starting job until the injury did him in. With Kelvin Benjamin the only sure thing in the Buffalo receiving corps, Streater has a good shot at landing one of the 3-4-5 spots, and he could work his way to as high as No. 2 if Zay Jones continues to disappoint.
Streater signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills on Monday, Mike Rodak of ESPN reports. Streater impressed the Bills' coaching staff in training camp but hurt his toe in August and was let go prior to the season opener with an injury settlement. Although his career has largely gone downhill since his breakout 2013 campaign with the Raiders when he caught 60 passes for 888 yards and four scores, Streater has a legitimate shot to earn a roster spot with Buffalo if he can avoid the injury bug.
Streater (toe) was let go Saturday with an injury settlement, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Streater actually had a shot at a starting job at one point, but a toe injury ultimately did him in. Considering the Bills later traded for Kaelin Clay, Streater probably doesn't fit into the team's immediate plans in the short term, even when he gets healthy. But things can change quickly in the NFL whether it's with the Bills or elsewhere, and we'd be surprised if a veteran with his size and experience stayed unemployed for long.
