Bills resign WR Rod Streater

The Buffalo Bills have announced they've resigned wide receiver Rod Streater to a reserves/futures contract. Streater was with the team in the preseason, and looked to be on track to make the 53-man roster, but sustained a dislocated toe in Philadelphia. He was released on an injury settlement.

Streater had a heck of a training camp. Many believed he was one of, if not the, most consistent receiver in camp. At the time Streater provided vertical speed the Bills didn't have. Deonte Thompson now fills that role, but Streater could give some depth to that spot down the line.

A reserve/futures contract doesn't put Streater on the active roster for this week against Jacksonville, or the playoffs at all. Any player that signs that type of deal, will go against the cap hit and roster number for the following season, in this case 2018. In the mean time, the Bills have his rights, and he can't sign with another team.

Before latching on with the Bills, Streater spent 4 seasons with the Raiders and 1 with the 49ers. He missed 28 games due to injury in 2014 & 2015. His best year was in 2013 when he had 100 targets, 60 receptions, 888 yards, and 4 touchdowns.
