The RB production will most likely be just fine, but it is a crucial season for QB Jake...

VIDEO: Kansas City Chiefs rookie De’Anthony Thomas burns Bengals

One of the bigger question marks this season for the Kansas City Chiefs is how to replace the production of running back Dexter McCluster, who signed a three-year deal with the Titans back in March. Of course it wasn’t his work in the backfield that the Chiefs might be missing. During the 2013 season McCluster led all NFL punt returners with 686 return yards and two touchdowns...
