The trade of Rod Streater, which is for an undisclosed draft pick, is an example of the team’s improved depth. The third-year pro had a nice preseason, catching six passes for 89 yards, and consistently flashed in preseason camp. Yet, he failed to nail down a job at a position that had been a weakness as recently as 2014, as Jeremy Maclin, Chris Conley, Albert Wilson, Tyreek Hill, De’Anthony Thomas and Demarcus Robinson all nailed down roster spots (at least, for now).
