The Dolphins are sheltering a former Raven in wide receiver Tommy Streeter. Apparently needing a big and fast receiver on the field after the departure of Mike Wallace, the Dolphins have gotten a little desperate by going to the former Raven well that isn't all that deep.

Streeter was originally an sixth round draft pick out of Miami in the 2012 NFL Draft. Billed as a explosive playmaker by being 6-foot-5 and running the 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds, Streeter just couldnt find his legs under him in Baltimore. Cut the following season due to injury and inconsistent play when he could get on the field, Streeter bounced his way around the league. Now with Miami, this marks the sixth team for Streeter in only 3 seasons.

Streeter wore number 11 for the Ravens, during his lone season in Baltimore. The player that currently wears the same number is wide receiver Kamar Aiken, who is currently wowing coaches through his consistent play and ability to make the type of explosive plays originally hoped for from Streeter.

Hopefully for Streeter and the Dolphins, he can get his act together and live up the potential he has with his physical traits. If not, this could mark the end of yet another former Raven wide receiver in the NFL.
