Chiefs' Alex Smith on Dexter McCluster: 'He's a special guy'

USA TODAY Sports

The KC Chiefs new quarterback seems to like the Chiefs OW (offensive weapon), Dexter McCluster.

Dexter McCluster is always a fun topic to talk about in the offseason because the ideas with him are endless. His size, speed and quickness allows for a lot of creative thinking, something Andy Reid recognized three years ago when McCluster was coming out of Ole Miss.

This time around it's the KC Chiefs quarterback, Alex Smith, who is talking about what the team can do with McCluster.

"If I had to pick one [player who stood out], for me not knowing much about Dexter McCluster and coming in knowing that he was kind of the running back/receiver and seeing how fluid he is going in and out of those roles is really impressive for me to watch," Smith said, via comments sent out by the Chiefs.

"It's easy to talk about in the meeting room, to say, ‘Hey let's put the slot receiver and run routes and be natural and then put him back in the backfield.' To be able to do a multitude of things, it's another thing to see it live.

"He's a special guy, and I think he's really taking it on."

McCluster still hasn't clearly defined his role, perhaps because it's still evolving. We talk a lot about what McCluster can do but it doesn't always translate. We can all see the talent, ability and opportunities there.

Will Andy Reid be the one to fully realize what McCluster can do?
