KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Veteran depth at the wide receiver position arrived Saturday.

The Chiefs and wide receiver Rod Streater agreed to terms on a one-year deal, a source familiar with the transaction confirmed with ChiefsDigest.com and The Topeka Capital-Journal. The source spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the signing.

The 6-2, 195-pound Streater entered the league in 2012 as an undrafted free agent out of Temple with the Oakland Raiders.

Streater’s best season came in 2013 when he totaled 888 yards receiving and four touchdowns on 60 catches before injuries derailed the past two seasons, causing him to play in just four games during that span.

He has appeared in 39 with 19 starts over his four-year career, totaling 1,564 yards receiving and eight touchdowns on 109 catches.

The 28-year-old Streater joins a current Chiefs wide receiver corps consisting of Jeremy Maclin, Albert Wilson, Chris Conley, De’Anthony Thomas, Frankie Hammond Jr., Fred Williams, Da’Ron Brown and Kenny Cook.
