The Kansas City Chiefs seemed to be rolling into a deep playoff run this past year but the only rolling they did was rolling over against the Indianapolis Colts in the Wild Card. This offseason will be spent making a good team even better, but not everyone will be back in 2014.
Branden Albert is likely gone but that’s something fans expected. Another potential free agent is Dexter McCluster, a guy that Chiefs fans may be a little more surprised to see go. Kansas City signed CFL receiver Weston Dressler which has put McCluster’s future with the team in question.
ESPN.com blogger Adam Teicher states that McCluster could be on his way out, but the fact that Kansas City gave Dressler a contract without a bonus means they can cut him anytime they want without penalty.
They are small players with the same skill set. One would play and the other would have nothing to do.So Dressler’s signing could be an indication the Chiefs don’t plan to re-sign McCluster. But the Chiefs gave Dressler no bonus money. He costs nothing to bring to camp and take a look at. If they don’t like him at that point, they could cut him with no salary cap ramifications. It will be interesting to see how this situation resolves itself.
It won’t be an easy decision for the Chiefs, but Dressler’s signing may signal the end of the McCluster era in Kasnsas City, although nothing is certain at this point.
