Todd Haley Has His Own Dexter McCluster In Pittsburgh

Former Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley has brought his very own Dexter McCluster with him to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Haley, the Steelers new offensive coordinator, talked about a couple of Steelers players who were versatile enough to line up at running back and slot receiver.

Sounds a lot like one of Haley's former players with the Chiefs.

Even so, one critical concept has become quite clear ­­- a player who can line up as a running back, motion out of the backfield and set up at the slot receiver position is going to be extremely valuable.

Enter Baron Batch and Chris Rainey.

Despite not having one NFL snap between them, Haley has a pair of prototypical hybrids with Rainey (5-foot-8, 178) and Batch (5-10, 210) who can fill that important role in his offense.

So this makes me wonder if the McCluster pick two years ago was mostly Haley-driven.

I wonder what the Steelers will think when Tyler Palko is announced as the new backup quarterback to Ben Roethlisberger.
