It'll be a reunion Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Tennessee Titans are visiting Kansas City in what amounts to a homecoming for wide receiver Dexter McCluster, kicker Ryan Succop and a slew of other former Chiefs players.

In this modern era of free agency, it's not uncommon for players to face their former teams. A few members of the Chiefs have a history with Tennessee, including wide receiver Donnie Avery.

But when McCluster and Succop are lumped together with safety Bernard Pollard, defensive end Ropati Pitoitua and running back Jackie Battle, well, that's a whole lot of familiarity.

What makes it even stranger? Succop was waived by the Chiefs just this past weekend.
