Biography

 
PRO:  Dexter McCluster is an explosive weapon that has seen action at running back, wide receiver and return specialist during his NFL career.  The Titans signed the former second-round selection on the first day of free agency in 2014, following his four-year stint with the Kansas City Chiefs.  McCluster is a prolific return specialist that was named to his first Pro Bowl after a 2013 campaign in which he returned two punt returns for touchdowns.  The 5-foot-8-inch, 170-pounder is a dynamic receiver that has hauled in receptions from the slot, the offensive backfield and as an outside receiver and he should bring versatility and big plays to the Titans’ offense.
