Dexter McCluster's skills wow Titans teammates

If any Titans player can offer a good scouting report of running back/wide receiver Dexter McCluster, it's probably fellow free-agent signee Shaun Phillips. That's because the veteran linebacker spent part of the past four seasons – three in San Diego and one in Denver – trying to tackle McCluster, who played for the AFC West rival Chiefs during that stretch.

Analyzing Dexter McCluster, running back ☆

When the Titans made Dexter McCluster their first signing of free agency this offseason, I noted he had played both wide receiver and running back in the NFL, and noted Whisenhunt’s challenge was to make him a more effective player than he had been. Since then, the Titans have indicated McCluster will at least start off playing more running back than wide receiver. To get a better...

How the Titans were penalized in 2013 ☆

NFL Game Rewind doesn’t want me to write about Dexter McCluster’s play as a running back in 2011, so you’re getting a belated data dump post instead. Yes, following on a similar post I did for 2012, it’s a look at how the Titans were penalized in 2013. The Titans were neither penalized a lot nor penalized a little in 2013. All told, they were flagged for 113 total infractions...

Tennessee Titans could surprise with selection at No. 11

The Tennessee Titans could go just about anywhere when they’re on the clock at No. 11 in the NFL Draft. They could pick a nose tackle, or a run-stuffing inside linebacker. What about help on the offensive line, or one of the highly-touted quarterbacks? Or head coach Ken Whisenhunt could bring in good ole’ No. 85. No, not Antonio Gates, but another prototype pass-catcher with...

Expect Titans to tap Dexter McCluster's versatility

When envisioning how the Titans might use Dexter McCluster, it's easy at first glance to see the 5-foot-8, 170-pounder as a third-down, pass-catching specialist, the kind of player who's a tough matchup for linebackers. Based on the contract the free agent signed and the comments Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt made, however, it's clear McCluster actually will play a more...

Titans earn passing marks for conservative offseason

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The roster swinging door hasn't spun as fast as last year, when the Titans spent more than $100 million on free agency. Instead, it's been a steady flow of comings and goings that has raised a few eyebrows, as the franchise enters a new era of ownership -- Tommy Owens taking over the late Bud Adams -- and coaching with Ken Whisenhunt.

Titans make low-key splash in free agency, sign McCluster

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans jumped into the free agency pool last year like the big neighborhood kid showing off his best cannonball.
