NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A person familiar with the deal says the Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with Chiefs running back, receiver and kick returner Dexter McCluster.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Tuesday because the deal had not been announced minutes after NFL free agency started.
ESPN.com first reported the deal.
McCluster was switched between wide receiver and running back early in his career but flourished in 2013 as a slot receiver and punt returner for new Kansas City coach Andy Reid. The former second-round pick caught a career-high 53 passes for 611 yards and two touchdowns, and also had two punt return touchdowns, earning his first trip to the Pro Bowl.
That production made McCluster too pricy for the cash-strapped Chiefs to bring back.
