Oakland Raiders Rod Streater has strong connection with quarterback Terrelle Pryor


Although Denarius Moore has the name (and history, I guess) of being the Oakland Raiders number one receiver, it appeaser Rod Streater is quickly catching up to him.

According to Vic Tafur, Streater has a budding chemistry with quarterback Terrelle Pryor which is expected to serve both well this season:

Pryor, who The Chronicle reported is starting over Matt Flynn, has taken a lot more snaps with Moore, Streater and Ford the last couple of weeks. He already had a strong connection with Streater, a close friend who he worked out with all summer.
“He’s way more comfortable throwing the ball than he was a year ago,” Streater said.
And Streater and the others are more comfortable reading when Pryor is about to take off and either run or throw on the run.
“He’s always going to try and make a play happen, so there is a little clock in your head that goes off,” Streater said. “You gotta find that open void.”
And as far as the talk of being a No. 1 receiver, Streater said it doesn’t really matter.
“I have to go out there and catch the ball regardless,” he said.

What Moore lacks in solid hands, Streater possesses, which should help him elevate his status to being the top target and potential security blanket of Pryor.

    Streaters the man. Hope they have a big game on Sunday. I predict big things from the raiders considering how horrible the colts defense is. The raiders should have over 300 rushing yards since the colts can’t stop the run, and the raiders are a run first team. Pryor and McFadden are going to make them look bad this Sunday. Doubters are trippin. Luck is the one who will have his work cut out for him.
