How and When He Joined the Browns: The Browns signed Streater as a free agent in September of last season after not having been on a regular season roster since the 2016 season.

Productivity Level Last Season: Steater was only on the team for 3 games, mostly as a special teamer, when he suffered a season-ending neck injury. On offense, he logged 1 rush for -11 yards.

Why Keeping Him Could Make Sense: If the Browns want a veteran camp body with some special teams experience at the wide receiver position, Streater can be had for the veteran minimum.

What the Browns Should Do: There is no need for Streater. He was only signed for the very back-end of the roster. They found a better receiving option in Breshad Perriman (who still needs to re-sign), and have already taken a flier on another guy in Jaelen Strong. Ricardo Louis will be returning too.

Also, as harsh as it may sound, coming off of a neck injury, the club really doesn’t have a pressing need to retain a low-end free agent like that. Streater had an 888-yard season in 2013, but has hardly seen action since then.

Let us know below whether or not the team should try to re-sign Rod Streater!
