2014 NFL Free Agency: Dexter McCluster To Sign With The Tennessee Titans


Kansas City Chiefs free agent wide reciever, Dexter McCluster, has found a new home with the Tennessee Titans per Adam Schefter.

There you have it, McCluster is officially leaving the team and now we know why. He is guaranteed $4.5 million this year, something the Chiefs most certainly could not swing. At least not for a below average receiver and a solid return man.  We saw this coming, as the Chiefs have been making moves for the past few months to try and find options to replace his loss.

The All-Pro return man was the Chiefs second round pick in 2010 and has been considered a bust up until this past season. McCluster hasn’t shown much in the receiving department, as he’s only averaged 8.7 yards per catch for his career and only caught five touchdowns. Certainly, he is an explosive player with great talent, but the Chiefs didn’t see enough to pay him what he was asking for.

The Chiefs are now looking to replace the roles that McCluster had with the team. In house players include A.J. Jenkins and Weston Dressler of the CFL. Rumors have been swirling about the possible signing of Eagles free agent receiver, Jason Avant, but there was a report that he has a scheduled visit with the New England Patriots.

Goodbye DMC, it’s been a fun four years and best of luck to you.
