Raiders wide receiver Rod Streater chases 1,000-yard season

"He's going to be in the right spot all the time," McGloin said. "He knows what he's doing. He shows up every day, works hard, goes about his business. I can trust him. I can throw him opportunity balls and there's a 50-50 chance he'll come down with it."

According to footballperspective.com, the Raiders are tied with Jacksonville for the longest active streaks for seasons without a 1,000-yard receiver. The closest any Raiders receiver has come in that span is Darrius Heyward-Bey, who had 975 yards receiving in 2011.

Streater's 787 yards are the second most for any Oakland wideout since 2005, with only tight ends Brandon Myers (806 in 2012) and Zach Miller (805 in 2009) topping his current total.

"There's something about that number you want to get to as a receiver to be considered one of the good ones for the year," Streater said. "That's what I'm reaching for and also to get these last three wins."

Streater played defensive back and receiver for two years in junior college at Alfred State before transferring to Temple. The Owls weren't much of a throwing team and Streater had just 49 catches in two seasons there, including only 19 his senior season.
