Streets a Lion

March 10, 2004
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- Receiver Tai Streets signed a one-year contract with the Detroit Lions on Wednesday.

The unrestricted free agent will be reunited with Steve Mariucci, who coached Streets in San Francisco.

``He's familiar with Steve and his system,'' Lions president Matt Millen said. ``He's had success. He upgrades us and gives us a big kid who runs well. He's healthy, and we're excited to get him.''

In five seasons with the 49ers, the former Michigan standout had 168 receptions for 2,008 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Streets started 16 games last season and caught 47 passes for 595 yards and seven TDs. In 2002, he had 72 receptions for 756 yards and five TDs.

He likely will start alongside Charles Rogers -- who had an injury-shortened rookie season last year -- and Az-Zahir Hakim.

Good news for the Lions I think. I like this guy as a # 3 or so receiver. I also think it gives another nice option to Harrington and takes a little pressure off of Rogers. Now they need a running game, O-line, Defense...

This certainly can't hurt the Lions next year. Knowing the system will help Rogers grow a little faster too, since he missed part of last year.

Nice pick-up by the Lions. Im glad he has a job, I drafted him as a sleeper in my keeper league. I heard reports of the Lions drafting yet another WR, but now I think they are better just to look somewhere else. ;-D

Justin McCariens and now Tai Streets are the top sleeper picks of 2004 so far, imo. This signing does improve Charles Rogers' stock, as well as Hakim's, whose fantasy value rises somewhat from its previous value of zero. (Although I must admit that I picked up Hakim for a WR/TE flex spot in a 12-team league late last year; hey, he did have 4 TDs in the last seven games of the season!)

As mentioned by Sandwich, the Lions need a running back and an established running game before I start drafting these guys any higher though. In my draft, Rogers is a solid 2nd WR and Streets a 3rd WR. Hakim is a bench pick-up after the draft for injury insurance or bye week fill-in.

i dont think Streets is all that great. He played opposite of TO who sees all the coverage and put very very mediocre numbers. Now he's opposite a less lethal Charles Rogers being thrown to from harrington. Not a bad move but not a real difference maker IMO.

Bad move for SF, given they lost TO, but nice move by mooch and the Lions.
