Former Raiders WR Rod Streater making free agent rounds

Raiders fans know Rod Streater is more valuable than his one catch last season and total of 10 catches for 92 yards over the past two seasons. So, it shouldn't come as any surprise he is receiving considerable interest across the NFL for his services.

He has at least two visits lined up over the next couple days. First he is headed to New England to visit the wide receiver starved Patriots, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Streater then has a visit set up with the Jets on Friday according to Dom Cosentino of NJ.com.

The interest from the Jets is understandable considering Streater had the best game of his career against the Jets in week 13 of the 2013 season. In that game he caught 7 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown.

Prior to the start of free agency, the Kansas City Chiefs had expressed interest in Streater as well, having had faced him four times before as an AFC West rival.

Prior to the past couple seasons, he was the Raiders top receiver. In 2013 he had caught 60 passes for 888 yards and 4 touchdowns. Then a string of bad luck disrupted an otherwise promising career for the 28-year-old former undrafted receiver.

Heading into the 2014 season, he was the team's number one receiver, but he broke his foot in week two and was placed on injured reserve. Then he missed all of training camp prior to last season with an unknown illness. After falling behind, he had fallen down the depth chart behind Seth Roberts and Andre Holmes. He was even inactive for much of the season.

With a somewhat weak wide receiver free agent market, Streater should receive a decent offer from one of these teams.
