After consecutive poor seasons with the Oakland Raiders, wide receiver Rod Streater has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Streater's one-year contract is worth up to $4.8 million.

The Chiefs aren't the only team that expressed interest in Streater.

On Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported the 28-year-old wideout would visit the New York Jets on Friday, and Schefter reported Streater would visit the New England Patriots on Thursday.

Following a breakout 2013 campaign that saw the Temple product rack up 60 receptions for 888 yards and four touchdowns, expectations were high for Streater in 2014.

broken foot limited him to just three games, though, and he never recovered in 2015. In fact, Streater made just one appearance last season and finished the year with one catch for eight yards.

The combination of Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree pushed Streater down the depth chart, but he was also surpassed by Seth Roberts and Andre Holmes, which made him a non-factor.

Streater proved he is talented and capable of performing at the NFL level a couple of seasons ago, however, and the Chiefs could be a great landing spot.

Streater will join Jeremy Maclin in a run-heavy offense, with Alex Smith at the helm at quarterback.

Streater is an inexpensive addition, which makes him a low-risk, high-reward option at the wide receiver position.
