"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.
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.
McCluster was targeted eight times in the game, hauling in seven of those passes for 52 yards. He added one rush for 3 yards in the season-ending loss.
The loss can't remove the luster from McCluster's career-best season. He appeared in 15 of 16 games, racking up career-highs in receptions (53), yards (511) and touchdowns (two), while adding two return touchdowns in the regular season.
McCluster ends the regular season with 53 grabs for 511 yards and two scores. He'll catch passes from Alex Smith in Saturday's wild card game in Indianapolis.
