Chiefs rookie Dexter McCluster, Ravens CB Fabian Washington and other NFL players gathered in Bradenton, FL at the IMG Performance Institute (IPI) at the IMG Academy to train for the upcoming season.'
If this story from Chris Harry of FanHouse.com is any indication, McCluster is picking up the the NFL game at a good pace.
Moments later, the 5-foot-8, 169-pound McCluster was split out wide for a one-on-one rematch against Washington. Clearly, the pupil was paying attention. This time, McCluster shimmied coming off the line, dropped a shoulder, busted inside, sped up-field about 10 yards and shimmied again before snapping outside.
Washington lost his footing on that last move. As chunks of sod flew into the air, the Ravens' defensive back fell on his backside.
The collective reaction of the group was something along the lines of, "DAMN!"
Washington, by the way, ran in the 4.2 forty range coming out of the draft.
"DAMN" is right from what it sounds like.
