Early yearsEdit

Streater grew up in Burlington Township, New Jersey where he played high school football for the Falcons at Burlington Township High School.[1]

College careerEdit

Streater played junior college football at Alfred State College (before the technical school transitioned to the NCAA level), then transferred to Temple University.[2] In his first season at Temple, Streater caught 30 receptions for 481 yards and four touchdowns.[3] In his senior season, playing in an almost exclusively run-based offense, Streater had 19 receptions for 401 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns. Temple won its first bowl game since 1979 during Streater's senior campaign.[4][5]

Professional careerEdit

Oakland RaidersEdit

After being undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft, Streater then signed with the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted free agent. Streater was in the starting lineup for the Raiders on Monday Night Football against the San Diego Chargers to open the 2012 NFL season. He made his first NFL reception in the first quarter, a catch of a Carson Palmer pass, and fumbled at the end of the play. Despite the way he entered the league, Streater wound up finishing fourth on the team with 584 receiving yards on 39 receptions and three touchdowns.[6][7]

In 2013, Streater had an excellent second season, with 60 catches, 888 receiving yards, and four receiving touchdowns. He had a career-long 66 yard catch against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8.[8]

In the 2014 season, Streater only played in the first three games due to a foot injury.[9] He recorded nine receptions for 84 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown on the year.[10]

In the 2015 season, he only appeared in one game and had one eight-yard reception.[11]

Kansas City ChiefsEdit

On March 12, 2016, Streater signed a one-year, $4.8 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.[12]

San Francisco 49ersEdit

On September 3, 2016, Streater and a conditional seventh-round draft pick were traded to the 49ers for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.[13] He played in all 16 games with two starts, recording 18 receptions for 191 yards and two touchdowns.[14]

Buffalo BillsEdit

On May 24, 2017, Streater signed with the Buffalo Bills.[15] He was released on September 2, 2017.[16] He signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills on January 1, 2018.[17]

On September 1, 2018, Streater was released by the Bills.[18]

Cleveland BrownsEdit
