After a Pro Bowl season with the Chiefs in 2013, Dexter McCluster is leaving Kansas City. The electric punt returner signed a three-year deal, $12 million with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora has reported.

McCluster's deal with the Titans includes $4.5 million in guaranteed money. Tennessee will be getting a former second-round pick who's coming off the best season of his four-year career. In 2013, McCluster set a Chiefs franchise-record with 686 punt return yards, that number also led the NFL -- by a lot. No other punt returner in the league had more than 600 yards in 2013.

The 686 punt return yards helped McCluster earn his the first Pro Bowl berth of his four-year career. McCluster will be a step up in the return game for Tennessee. In 2013, no Titans player had more than 135 return yards and Tennessee only had 240 as a team.

Besides returning punts, McCluster has also been coming on strong as a receiver. The 24-year-old caught 53 passes for 511 yards and two touchdowns last season. All three of those numbers were career-highs for McCluster.
