The Titans are releasing running back Dexter McCluster, per multiple reports.

The move comes a few hours after reports surfaced that running back Bishop Sankey and wide receiver Justin Hunter had been released. The Titans are going with new general manager Jon Robinson’s guys and cutting those from the old regime.

McCluster, who also often lined up at wide receiver, is at least somewhat of a surprise cut because he was a unique player in a unique offense. His release leaves the Titans with almost all new acquisitions at their skill positions.

McCluster, 28, spent the last two years with the Titans after playing his first four seasons with the Chiefs. He carried the ball 55 times last year, his most since 2011, and also caught 31 passes. He has two career rushing touchdowns and seven career receiving touchdowns.
