Rod Streater seeing time with Chiefs first team

Rod Streater is getting a look with the Chiefs first team the past few days, as a calf strain to Albert Wilson has bumped him up to the inside receiver position for Jeremy Maclin and Chris Conley.

"It's cool, playing inside. I just have to get the reps,” Streater said after practice Saturday. “It's a little different when it's live and you have to learn the little things. I had been playing outside a lot, now getting that zebra (three-receiver) work, it's a little different, so it's been good. I've been able to make plays and I just have to continue to learn and continue to be in the film room and get that position down pat."

Now in Kansas City, his aptitude for versatility has already impressed some of his most respected teammates.

During Streater’s first two years in Oakland, he was primarily used in the slot, and those seasons happened to be his best. Streater’s 888 yards receiving in 2013 led the team, the story said. The story also added that soo far this camp, Streater has shown athleticism in drills across the board, ranging from one-on-one periods to live full-team 11-on-11 sessions. During his past few days with the first team, Alex Smith has spent extra time with him, offering additional tips after reps to help him get open.
