    There’s no sign of buyer’s remorse about Dexter McCluster in Nashville.

    McCluster signed a three-year, $9 million deal with the team as a free agent and he’s getting positive reviews from his teammates early in the offseason program. Linebacker Shaun Phillips said that “he’s excited to see our offense work with someone like that” after years of facing McCluster in the AFC West and wide receiver Nate Washington suggested McCluster’s in line for a big role in the offense.

    “Amazing. I’ve seen his feet. I’ve seen his quickness. I think he’s going to bring some true playmaking ability to not only our run game, but our pass game,” Washington said, via the Tennessean. “I’m pretty sure coach [Ken] Whisenhunt has some tricks up his sleeve to put him in some positions and make some plays.”

    Whisenhunt has talked about getting McCluster the ball as a running back, something the Chiefs rarely did over the last two seasons, and that could lead to a role similar to the one that Danny Woodhead played for the Chargers last season. Woodhead had 182 touches and there’s playing time for the taking with Chris Johnson out of the picture, most of which would go to McCluster if the offseason optimism sustains itself into September.

    McCluster was a blast to watch at Ole Miss as a RB, can't wait to tap into that RB potential again.

    What's interesting is we replaced CJ with mccluster...

    Mccluster doesn't catch that well... Explosive. Very similar players but we said goodbye CJ, well take our chances.

    Says something about CJ.

    CJ has no lateral speed, as a RB thats bigger than a 4.24 40.

    The best part is we saved 6,000,000 and won't fall off very much in production.

    What would people be saying 2 years ago if someone said here you take Shonn Greene and we'll take Chris Johnson.... Funny how things work out.
