University of Tennessee fans everywhere should be applauding this move. While I am not a Tennessee fan, I am applauding this move. There was a lot of talk about Darren Sproles in the last couple of days, but I like McCluster better. He is younger and can bring the same match-up problems.
What will his role be? Look at what Ken Whisenhunt did with Danny Woodhead last year. McCluster is a whole lot better than Woodhead.
Here is what Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride had to say about McCluster:
Dexter McCluster is coming off a career year in Kansas City. For the second time in his career, he was the full-time punt returner and did an excellent job with it, earning Pro Bowl honors. That's where he offers a lot of value.
Offensively, McCluster underwhelmed as a slot receiver. He didn't break many tackles so he didn't have a lot of big plays like you might think he would.
My guess is he will be used more as a third-down back here than a slot receiver.
Now I wonder why they need Leon Washington....
Jim Wyatt has the terms of McCluster's deal:
