It has already been chronicled that the Tennessee Titans are giddy about their running back combination of DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry.
Tennessee has already released RB Bishop Sankey. On Friday, Dexter McCluster became the next in line. The Titans cut the seventh-year running back, per NFL.com.
McCluster’s dismal is somewhat of a surprise. The running back has shown the ability to line up all over the field and is a reliable pass catcher.
The 5-foot-8 McCluster spent the last two seasons in Tennessee. He had 378 rushing yards, 457 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns while with the Titans.
Prior to his two-year stint with the Titans, McCluster played four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.
McCluster has compiled 247 rushes for 1,040 yards and 229 receptions for 1,957 receiving yards to go with 9 touchdowns in his career.
At 28 years old, McCluster should draw interest. He is a steady third-down option and can be a mismatch for linebackers on the outside if he lines up at the wide receiver position.
