Over the course of the 2013 NFL season, wide receiver Rod Streater has proven that last year was no fluke. Streater wasn’t thought of being capable of doing much of anything in Oakland, but has surpassed all expectations and is quickly emerging as the team’s best wideout.
With rookie quarterback Matt McGloin proving to be a force to be reckoned with under center for the Raiders, Streater has kicked it into high gear over the past few weeks with the two talented youngsters developing chemistry on the field. Streater has become McGloin’s favorite target in the passing game and has picked up the slack with Denarius Moore on the shelf for the past few games with a shoulder injury.
Along with seemingly having a bright future with the Oakland Raiders, Streater may become the first wide receiver to eclipse the 1,000-yard receiving mark since 2005. Randy Moss was the last Raider to accomplish that feat and Streater is well on his way to doing the same with only 213 yards left to go heading into the final three games.
