Chargers' Dexter McCluster: Expects to fill in as pass-catching RB
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McCluster is expected to fill in as the pass-catching threat out of the backfield with Danny Woodhead (knee) out for the season, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego-Union Tribune reports.

This doesn't come as much of a surprise, given McCluster's versatility as both a running back and wide receiver. Considering current Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt was McCluster's head coach during his tenure with the Titans, it makes sense that McCluster "pretty much has the offense down" and will likely have an impact as early as Week 3. During his two years with the Titans, McCluster never recorded more than 30 receptions in a year, but that number could be on the rise if he's able to build a rapport with quarterback Philip Rivers quickly.

Dexter McCluster: Expected to join San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Chargers plan to sign McCluster, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

With Danny Woodhead (knee) done for the season, McCluster could quickly work his way into a significant role, perhaps serving as Melvin Gordon's pass-catching complement. McCluster will be reunited with offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, who was Tennessee's head coach for 2014 and part of 2015. McCluster was released by the Titans at the end of the preseason, as his versatility was devalued by the team's offseason acquisitions at both running back and wide receiver.

Dexter McCluster: Released by Titans
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McCluster has been released by the Titans, The Tennessean reports.

McCluster has long been stuck between playing wide receiver and running back, and it appears the Titans prefer other options at both positions going into this year. Going into what would've been his third season in Tennessee, McCluster recorded just seven touches through three preseason games, evidencing a diminished role in wake of the arrivals of running backs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. In 11 games last season, McCluster rushed 55 times for 247 yards and one touchdowns, and caught 31 passes for 260 yards and another score, so the former second-rounder could draw interest elsewhere are a utility man and special teamer.

Titans' Dexter McCluster: Four touches against Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McCluster rushed twice for three yards and added two receptions for five more yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Raiders.

McCluster was only on the field for six offensive snaps, but the Titans made a concerted effort to get him the ball on those plays. While his receiving ability out of the backfield should earn the 28-year-old a roster spot, he doesn't have the ability to carry the ball extensively like DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry.

Titans' Dexter McCluster: 35 total yards on three touches in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McCluster rushed twice for 12 yards, and added a 23-yard reception on his lone target in Saturday's preseason opener against the Chargers.

McCluster's touches will likely remain constant despite the offseason addition of running backs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. Expect the diminutive veteran to reprise the change-of-pace role that saw him total 507 yards on 31 catches and 55 carries in 11 weeks last year.
