The Buffalo Bills officially signed veteran WR Rod Streater to a future/reserve contract on Monday for the 2018 season.
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Buffalo actually brought Streater in for a workout back in October but didn’t sign him to a contract following the session.
Streater, 29, wound up signing on with the Raiders as undrafted free agent out of Temple back in 2012. He’s spent all four of his years of his NFL career with the Raiders before signing a one-year, $810,000 contract with $4 million in incentives with the Chiefs last year.
The Chiefs later traded Streater and a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick to 49ers for a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick.
The Bills signed him in May but released him with an injury settlement as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit.
In 2016, Streater appeared in all 16 games and caught 18 passes for 191 yards receiving and two touchdowns for the 49ers.
