Andre Holmes might not be the only former Raiders wide receiver the Eagles have interest in during NFL free agency. It sounds like the Birds might also be in on Rod Streater.

In addition, Kansas City reporter Terez Paylor said Streater is planning to visit some East Coast teams and thinks the Eagles could be one of them. The Eagles have shown interest in the low-end receiver market (Holmes, Darrius Heyward-Bey) so it's not a stretch to think they're interested in Streater, too. And it's not hard to see why Streater might be interested in the Eagles. The Burlington, NJ native attended college at Temple.

Streater, 28, measures in at 6-3, 200 pounds. He spent four seasons in Oakland after going undrafted in 2012. In 36 games played with the Raiders, Streater recorded 19 starts. He racked up 109 receptions for 1,564 yards and eight touchdowns during that span. Streater spent most of the 2015 season as a healthy scratch after falling behind other receivers on the depth chart.

This obviously isn't a target to get super excited about, but that's not what the Eagles are looking to add here. They just need an experienced veteran who has some playing experience and can contribute on special teams. They also seem to be targeting taller receivers, so Streater fits that profile as well.
