Kansas City Chiefs WR/RB Dexter McCluster has worked out of the backfield, slot, and wide receiver in the past, and that trend will continue even more so in Andy Reid's offense.
His versatile style allows him to line up anywhere on the field, thus creating mismatch nightmares for opposing defenses.
Putting him and RB Jamaal Charles as integral parts of an offense that is geared to use multiple looks and countless ways for QB Alex Smith to get them the ball.
"One million, five hundred and thirty-six ways that I can get the football,’’ McCluster said, via Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star.
"This offense is wide-open. You get opportunities everywhere. It’s a fun offense.’’
"My job is to blow the top off the defense, clear the safety and run as fast as I can to open it up for the next guy,’’ McCluster said. "But my number was called. It fell right into my hands. The quarterback made a nice throw and I ultimately made a nice catch.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Rico Richardson was the Southwestern Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year in 2012, and had a productive career at Jackson State.
Despite his production, Richardson went undrafted and eventually signed with the Chiefs.
Richardson’s 4.38 speed helped him catch 60 passes for 1,153 yards (a 19.2-yard average) with 11 scores last season.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kevin Stinking Boss, kids.
That's right: A year ago at this time, on August 6, 2012, the Kansas City Chiefs' starting tight end on the first depth chart of the preseason was Kevin Boss. It gets better. Their No. 1 nose tackle was Anthony Toribio; one of the starting wideouts (thanks to Dwayne Bowe's holdout) was ... Steve Breaston.
Long way to go...

The gambling gods giveth and the gambling gods taketh away. We were given one glorious year of Romeo Crennel to line our wallets with 20s and laugh our way to the bank. We all knew coming in that it was gonna be a one year deal, but that didn’t make it any less fun. Still, the world we live in is that much more drab and empty now that he’s gone. I guess I just miss my cash cow...
The Kansas City Chiefs have signed offensive guard Rokevious Watkins and released offensive lineman Mike Tepper in their continued search for help along the interior of their line.
Watkins was scheduled to work out with the Chiefs for the first time Saturday.
The 6-foot-4, 338-pound Watkins was drafted in the fifth round by the St. Louis Rams last year. He appeared in one game...
St. Joseph, MO – When the Kansas City Chiefs selected Central Michigan Left Tackle, Eric Fisher, with the top overall pick, they understood he’d begin his NFL career at right tackle. With the Chiefs first exhibition game a few days away, how does KC’s top pick feel about being a rookie starter?
As part of our comprehensive draft guide I shared a piece on the importance of assessing a player’s team and offensive context when deciding on his draft stock. We’ve already written about sophomore back Trent Richardson; today we’ll take a look at Jamaal Charles. Charles finished 2012 as fantasy’s 8th highest scoring Running Back and the 14th highest scoring fantasy player...
St. Joseph, MO - Despite a hamstring twinge that’s kept All Pro Safety Eric Berry on the sidelines for parts of training camp, the former first round pick is not only ready for the Chiefs first preseason game next week but he has an eye on the start of the regular season.
Andy Reid isn't willing to say that he's feeling relaxed or rejuvenated these days, but those who are close to the new Kansas City Chiefs coach will say it for him.
The longtime Eagles coach is in the midst of his first training camp with a different franchise in 15 years. One minute he's barking at quarterback Alex Smith, the next minute he's yelling at a defensive...
St. Joseph, MO - A year ago Kansas City Chiefs Kicker, Ryan Succop, did something he’d not done in his NFL career to date, he missed some short kicks. None of them would have affected the outcome of the 2012 season. But nonetheless, it’s something that new Special Teams Coach, David Toub, is aiming to change.
QB Alex Smith (Kansas City)
Over his time in Philadelphia, Andy Reid made basically every quarterback he had look better than they were, allowing the Eagles to ship off Kevin Kolb, AJ Feeley, and, eventually, Donovan McNabb for 2nd round picks, even though none of the three ever did anything of note for their new team. He also revitalized the careers and Jeff Garcia and Michael Vick...
The Chiefs were no ordinary 2-14 team. They had 5 Pro-Bowlers last year. That might sound baffling, but it’s not. Only Eric Berry and maybe Tamba Hali (who had a down year) didn’t deserve it, but they could have easily been replaced by Brandon Flowers and Justin Houston. Unfortunately for them, football is a team game, not a contest of who has the highest amount...
