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, 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) has not been spotted in his uniform and appears unlikely to play in Thursday's preseason finale, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Streater had been climbing up the depth chart in rapid fashion, but the toe injury -- suffered in the second preseason game -- really set him back and may have cost him an outside shot at a starter's role. We'd guess he did enough to make the team, but being able to get back for practice next week would help remove any consideration from him receiving a long-term injury designation.
Streater (toe) has been ruled out for Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens, Jay Skurski of BuffaloNews.com 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 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.
