Well then. Shows how much we know.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster was mainly a receiver in 2010, running back in 2011 and now, at least one the first day of OTAs, back to receiver. There are a couple of reports, including this one from the Star, about McCluster moving back to receiver in the first day of OTAs.
This is one of our first changes in the Romeo Crennel/Brian Daboll era. On the surface, it at least looks like the Chiefs are still figuring out where he fits.

In comments distributed by the Chiefs, McCluster said of the switch:
"It felt great. I'm learning everything I can learn. That's the best thing about this sport, you learn as much as you can so whenever you're asked to do something, you know what to do."
McCluster also said Daboll is "going to put us in the right places and situations to be successful."

It's not easy to find a clear role for McCluster on the Chiefs. That's not necessarily because he's a bad player or anything, but that the Chiefs have several players ahead of him at both running back and receiver. Judging by the depth chart (which, actually, doesn't exist yet) it's going to be hard to give McCluster a large role this season.

McCluster's position switch is going to be one of the offseason story lines once again this year.
