Streater has been hired as a scouting assistant by the Browns, effectively serving as an announcement for his retirement form the NFL.
Streater last played a snap as a member of the Browns during the 2018 season, when he appeared in three games before landing on injured reserve due to a neck issue. The former Temple standout began his career with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2012, where he most notably logged 888 receiving yards and four scores in his sophomore campaign.
Streater (neck) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Scott Petrak of The Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Streater was declared out for the season Monday, so his placement on IR was merely a formality. The veteran receiver will look to work his way back for 2019 training camp.
Streater (neck) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
Streater suffered the neck injury while on punt coverage in the first quarter. Fortunately, the wideout does not need surgery and team doctors do expect a full recovery. Streater will likely be placed on injured reserve in the next day or two.
Streater won't return to Sunday's game against the Chargers after suffering a stinger in his neck, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Streater sustained the injury while covering a punt in the first quarter. Damion Ridley should step in as the Browns' No. 3 receiver with Rashard Higgins (knee) inactive Sunday.
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.
Streater (toe) hasn't been spotted in his uniform on the sideline and appears unlikely to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Lions, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Streater had been climbing up the depth chart in rapid fashion, but the toe injury -- which he suffered in the second preseason game -- really set him back and may have cost him an outside shot at a starter's role. The veteran wideout still may have done enough to earn his spot on the Week 1 roster, but being able to return to practice next week would help remove any consideration from Streater receiving a long-term injury designation.
Streater (toe) has been ruled out for Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.
Streater suffered from the toe injury in last Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles and looks to still be recovering, as he hasn't participated in practice since. Streater is currently fighting to be the No. 3 wideout behind Jordan Matthews and rookie Zay Jones.
Streater is still not practicing after suffering a toe injury in Thursday's preseason game, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Streater had been working his way up the depth chart and has a chance to do even more climbing following Anquan Boldin's abrupt retirement, but he can't continue that effort until he's back working in the offense. Rookie Zay Jones and Jordan Matthews appear to be the Week 1 starters, but there's still time for Streater to make his case for the No. 3 or No. 4 spot.
Streater suffered a toe injury in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 in Buffalo reports.
The former Raider had an impressive start to the game Thursday, nabbing both of his targets for 40 yards before being felled by the toe injury. The Bills did not disclose the severity of Streater's issue after the game, so his level of participation in practice in the coming days will be worth monitoring.
Streater's chances of emerging as a starter for the Bills to open the regular season could take a hit after the team signed Anquan Boldin to a one-year contract Monday.
In the early stages of training camp, Streater had been working his way up the depth chart to the point where Andre Holmes' job as the No. 2 wideout was already being questioned, but the Boldin signing really muddies the waters. For now, it's probably best to see if Streater can secure a spot on the team before making any sort of investment in him.
Streater worked with the first team briefly during Monday's training-camp session when No. 2 receiver Andre Holmes needed a breather, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Streater may be the team's most impressive receiver so far, and the journeyman looks to be on the right side of the cut line for a roster spot. If everything went his way during the preseason and Holmes continues to underwhelm, it's not unthinkable for Streater to enter the regular season as a starter. Rookie Zay Jones is also in the picture.
Streater has had a strong training camp and has begun to separate himself from some of the other depth receivers trying to land a final roster spot, Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com reports.
Streater, a six-year veteran signed just a few months ago, is currently around sixth on the depth chart, but outside of Sammy Watkins (foot) and maybe rookie Zay Jones, no spot is really secure. At 6-foot-3, Streater has the size the team has been looking for in its passing game, and while it would take a lot for him to have fantasy value, he seems to be making his case for a role with the team.
Streater was signed by the Bills on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Streater, now 29 years old, spent the past season in San Francisco, where he caught 18 passes for 191 yards and two touchdowns on 27 targets. The Bills beefed up their receiving corps earlier this offseason, drafting Zay Jones (knee) in the second round and signing Andre Holmes in free agency. Streater will likely compete for a depth role at receiver, battling the likes of Philly Brown and Brandon Tate for a spot on the roster.
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.
