It’s still early, but few new comers are drawing as much buzz as Rod Streater. After being singled out by Dennis Allen in his first mini camp for “looking sharp”, Rod has continued to impress. Vittorio Tafur, a writer for the San Francisco Chronicle, had this to say while watching a recent OTA session: “Still haven’t seen rookie WR Rod Streater drop a ball, or do anything but tuck ball in for a nap every pass thrown his way”.

Streater has flown under the radar for different reasons to this point in his career. He started out at a junior college before transferring to Temple for his Junior and Senior year. He has the size at 6’3″ 200 lbs to be an effective wide out at the NFL level and showed flashes of excellence in college but was inconsistent. He doesn’t possess great break away speed either.

He is quick with his moves though and does a nice job adjusting to the ball in the air. If he continues to impress throughout training camp, I don’t see any reason as to why he couldn’t make the final 53 man roster. It’s worth noting that he played some special teams at Temple as well which a lot of times plays a big part in the last few guys who “make the cut”.

  • Seems to me that Peyton pretty much has a $4M incentive to win the Super Bowl. Don't see what else it could be.

  • Most team incentives are NLTBE, especially those that the team didn't achieve prior year or are better than fifth from the top.

  • Would have to be not-likely to be earned incentives for Peyton or they would count against the cap.
