The reason is simple. I don’t think Streeter is going to make the roster.
I know Streeter has had a tremendous camp and he caught a touchdown pass in the preseason opener against Jacksonville. Streeter has done enough to put himself in the conversation for a roster spot. But the Bucs are going to have to crunch numbers at wide receiver, and Streeter might get squeezed out.
Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans are locks to make the team. Same for Chris Owusu. But here’s where things get tricky and you have to pay attention to who can help on special teams. Eric Page continues to work as the top return man, so he should get a roster spot.
The Bucs are likely to keep either five or six receivers on the roster. I think Streeter will end up getting cut. He could end up on the practice squad if another team doesn’t claim him.
