Dexter McCluster lands three-year deal in Tennessee

The Titans have themselves a new return man.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Tennessee has signed former Chiefs punt returner Dexter McCluster to a three-year deal in the opening moments of free agency. Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports the total value of the deal is $12 million with $4.5 million guaranteed.
McCluster’s departure from Kansas City was expected after reports on Monday that he informed the Chiefs that he’d be moving on. The 2010 second-round pick made the Pro Bowl as a returner last season after scoring two touchdowns and averaging 11.8 yards per return.
The Titans used several different returners without much success last season, making their need for a player with McCluster’s skills an obvious one. McCluster also caught 53 passes last season, so he’ll likely help out on offense in Tennessee as well.

    He can thank Toub for his pay day. I’m a Dex fan, and bummed that he left. Now I won’t cringe as much when someone flips him when they tackle him.

    Interested to see how he’ll do.

    Welcome too Tennessee Mr. MCCLUSTER! I CAN ONLY IMAGINE U KENDALL WRIGHT RUNNING AROUND IN THE SLOT WITH HUNTER AND WASHINGTON ON THE OUTSIDE! TITANS FANS R BEHIND UR SPEED AND PASS CATCHING ABILITIES 100 PERCENT!

    McCluster will be used similar to how Danny Woodhead was in San Diego. Although he can play in the slot, he can definitely be a 3rd down receiving back. CJ2.5YPC is all but gone now.

    As a Bolt fan, I’m happy he’s found a new home as a Titan. Bolts playing against KC always had me scared when they kicked it to him. He’s always dangerous in the the return game.

    He’s decent, but if ANYONE gets a hand on him it’s over. That wouldn’t be a huge deal if he was fast, but he’s not.

    Another terrible Pioli draft pick wasted.

    Kicking will be removed from the NFL, so this is es bad move.

    great returner…average in the slot. I was sad at first. Then I remembered that pass he let bounce off of his fingers in the wildcard…and the pass he dropped against the Broncos…and the pass…..you get the point.

    Chiefs fan here, good luck Dex. Loved him as a punt returner, great attitude, tough customer, but personally Im alright with this as I don’t like small receivers. He’s almost always smaller than the DB covering him, and it’s not a pretty sight for the offense when that happens.

    That said, congrats to him and the Titans
