Coach on Shonn Greene as starter: 'We had to list somebody'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated that his initial depth chart at running back -- Shonn Greene as starter, followed by Dexter McCluster and rookie Bishop Sankey -- isn't exactly written in stone.

"We had to list somebody at one," Whisenhunt told The Tennessean. "We're rotating those guys, and he was the senior member. He came back and has worked hard. That's where we are right now."


Shonn Greene got the nod because of experience


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Shonn Greene is the No. 1 running back because he's the most experienced, reports TitanInsider.com. On the team's initial depth chart, Greene was listed ahead of Dexter McCluster and rookie Bishop Sankey.

Titans pencil in Shonn Greene as starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Shonn Greene is the Titans' starting running back, according to the team's first depth chart. He's followed by Dexter McCluster, rookie Bishop Sankey and Leon Washington.

The depth chart contradicts the conventional wisdom that Sankey, the first back drafted, will end up leading Tennessee in carries.


Dexter McCluster expects big role


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Titans running back Dexter McCluster is expecting a big role this year, reports the Tennessean.

"I see myself running a lot, and that's what has me most excited right now," McCluster said. "I'm ready to get back out there and see how things unfold."

McCluster is expected to work in committee with Bishop Sankey and Shonn Greene, but he could be the change-of-pace rusher and catch passes out of the backfield.

"I guess it was based on everything I did in OTAs," McCluster said. "I did pretty much everything, but I was more excited about how much I've been running the ball."

How many times per game does McCluster expect to carry the ball this season?

"I don't know. I joked around all last year (with the Chiefs), saying, 'Hey, coach, just give me my 10 (carries) and I can make something happen,'" McCluster said. "But really, I'll take as many as I can."


Titans could use committee approach in backfield


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Even though rookie running back Bishop Sankey is expected to "be the busiest back this season in terms of carries and production" for the Titans, the team could still use a running back by committee approach, reports the Tennessean.

The report says Sankey will share playing time with Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster. The Titans want Greene to be their power back in goal-line and short-yardage situations, and McCluster has to prove he's more than a specialty back and pass catcher.

The Tennessean recently projected Sankey for more than 1,200 total yards and seven touchdowns. Based on those projections, Sankey would have finished as a Top 20 Fantasy running back in 2013.


Walker fond of Dexter McCluster


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker expects to see new running back Dexter McCluster making plays this season, reports ESPN.

"He's the Swiss Army knife now for this team," Walker said of McCluster. "He can play multiple positions, and I think you’re going to see Dexter moving around making great plays for us."

McCluster is expected to be used in a Danny Woodhead-like role for the Titans based on new head coach Ken Whisenhunt, who was the offensive coordinator in San Diego last season.


Dexter McCluster to be used at running back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) The Titans plan to line up new acquisition Dexter McCluster, a receiver and return man, at running back, reports The Tennessean. McCluster carried only 20 times over the past two seasons with the Chiefs, but in 2011 he ran 114 times for 516 yards (4.5 ypc) and a touchdown.


TItans GM: We're looking for a three-down back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) The Titans plan to add a running back in the draft to team with Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster, and general manager Ruston Webster wants that pick to be an all-around back, reports ESPN.com. Tennessee released Chris Johnson on Friday.

"I think moving forward we're going to look for another back with just some all-around ability, with size and speed, some explosiveness and possibly one that could stay on the field all three downs," Webster said in a radio interview.


What's the Titans' plan at running back?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) With the release of running back Chris Johnson, the Titans plan a committee approach in 2014, reports The Tennessean. Shonn Greene is "likely to see a big boost in his responsibilities," the report said. "Greene isn't a breakaway threat, but he's proven he can be a workhorse."

Dexter McCluster is expected to get more touches at running back after getting 20 combined carries the past two years in Kansas City. He'll be the primary receiving threat out of the backfield. Jackie Battle is a 6-2, 240-pounder who's see most of his snaps in short-yardage or goal-line situations, the paper said.

The Titans also have Leon Washington and likely will draft a running back, perhaps Auburn's Tre Mason, Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey or Washington's Bishop Sankey, the report said.


Report: Titans plan running back by committee


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) New Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt envisions a running back by committee this season, according to NFL columnist Dan Pompei. Assuming Chris Johnson is released, the committee presumably will feature Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster and possibly Jackie Battle or a rookie.

Sounds like Dexter McCluster will have role similar to Danny Woodhead's


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Ken Whisenhunt was very happy with how Danny Woodhead's 2013 season panned out while with the Chargers. So when he became the Titans' new head coach and one of his first moves was signing free agent running back Dexter McCluster, many believed he would play in that "air back" role like Woodhead was. 

Whisenhunt isn't saying that he exactly will fill that role but did suggest that is the direction the Titans are moving in. 

"[W]e'll get an opportunity to see what Dexter can do," Whisenhunt told CBSSports.com from the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando. "I know he can be successful in the slot, I know he can be successful out of the backfield, I know he can be successful as a returner, but how much we are going to be able to play him is going to be a function of the different roles that he can handle. ... [D]o I see a lot of similarities from the standpoint of matchup problems that you can create? Yeah I'd like to think so."

Whisenhunt added that there are roles they haven't seen McCluster in that they'd like to try, such as running through the A-gaps and pass protecting. He also noted that he can line up in the slot, something Woodhead didn't do much of in San Diego. The more McCluster can do, the more the Titans will use him. 


Dexter McCluster gets $4.5 million guaranteed


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) The Titans gave receiver/returner Dexter McCluster a three-year deal worth up to $12 million, including $4.5 million guaranteed, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Dexter McCluster joining Titans


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Free agent receiver/returner Dexter McCluster is leaving the Chiefs for the Titans, reports ESPN.

Dexter McCluster leaving Kansas City


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Free agent receiver Dexter McCluster will not re-sign with the Chiefs, reports the Kansas City Star. McCluster has four or five suitors and is expected to sign with one of them Tuesday night, the report said.

Chiefs' Dexter McCluster might be more valuable to another team


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) With Chiefs receiver/returner Dexter McCluster headed to free agency, ESPN.com suggests he "may have more value to another team than he does to the Chiefs." The website notes that while McCluster has returned three punts for touchdowns, he hasn't made a big impact on offense.

"The Chiefs have gone through several coordinators during McCluster's four seasons and none has been unable to unlock his big-play potential," the report said.

Kansas City recently signed CFL veteran Weston Dressler, who has a similar skill set to McCluster. That could be an indication K.C. is preparing to let McCluster walk.


Have the Chiefs found a replacement for Dexter McCluster?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/31/2014) Receiver Dexter McCluster is slated to be a free agent this offseason and a move the Chiefs might make soon could spell the end of his days in town

TSN reports the Chiefs are reportedly on the verge of signing Canadian Football League receiver Weston Dressler, a 5-foot-8, 172-pound speedster who caught 70 balls for just over 1,000yards and nine touchdowns last year for Saskatchewan.

"Weston and his agent were very up front they were going to go through the process and we were made aware of a possible situation coming up in the next couple of days where Weston was more than likely going to get an opportunity," Roughriders GM Jeremy O'Day told reporters. "From our standpoint it's tough to lose such a good player that's been here for a long time, is a leader in the locker-room. But again, you've got to feel happy for him that he gets that opportunity. He hasn't gone through the process of being in the NFL and as any competitor you just want to see how you compare with the best available players. We wish him the best."

ESPN believes that Dressler's arrival could push out McCluster, who has 1,500 receiving yards, 662 rushing yards and six total offensive touchdowns in four seasons. Here's a highlight reel of Dressler's plays
