Goodbye Dexter McCluster

Farewell Song:


Never mind Dexter, we’ll find some one like you, hopefully. McCluster has made some very memorable plays for the Chiefs in his short career. His punt return in the home opener against San Diego in 2010 was the play that set the tone for that 2010 season. Not to mention, that return happened during a rain storm, making the highlight that more epic.

He also had a thing of beauty against the New York Giants in 2013, when he turned on his “human joystick” impersonation on a sensational 89-yard punt return for a touchdown. McCluster spun, juked, and took the rock to the house on a play that blew the game wide open for the Chiefs.

But for all of those memorable plays, McCluster wasn’t worth the money he was just payed from the Tennessee Titans. He 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 receiving touchdowns. Not very good for a guy who is set to make $4.5 million guaranteed this year.

The Chiefs had to let him walk, and they saw it coming with the signings of Joe McKinght and Weston Dressler. So farewell McCluster, we’ll find someone like you.
