The Titans signed Dexter McCluster on Tuesday and it wasn’t the only move they made to address their kick return game.

The team also re-signed kick returner Leon Washington to a one-year contract. Washington joined the Titans late last season and handled both punt and kickoff return duties for the team in the final five games of the season. McCluster’s arrival likely means that he’ll be limited to kickoffs in 2014.

“Leon came in last year and was the consummate professional,” Titans General Manager Ruston Webster said in the team’s announcement of the deal. “He stabilized our return game and we are excited to sign him back to our roster.”

Washington averaged 30.1 yards on kickoff returns for the Titans last season and is tied for the NFL record with eight kickoff return touchdowns in his career. He’s also scored 18 touchdowns on offense, although he’s primarily played on special teams over the last few seasons.

    This move is minor but I don’t understand it. How many RB/KR does one team need? After signing McCluster, why do you need Washington?

    McCluster will not be returning kicks. They signed him as a WR not a RB.
