Dexter McCluster: Potential Jets

New, comments
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

A few days ago, I discussed the New York Jets drafting Dri Archer. If the team is interested in signing an Archer-like player but doesn't want to use a draft pick, one potential target can be Dexter McCluster, who currently plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, but will be a free agent this year. McCluster is extremely versatile and can play running back, wide receiver, kick returner, and punt returner. He's an electric player that can do it all.

I would guess that McCluster will cost approximately $3 million or so per year on his next contract, but that's just a guess. I would love to see McCluster signed, especially if the team would rather use a draft pick on someone other than Dri Archer. He would instantly give the team a good returner and an offensive weapon that can be used to create mismatches whenever he's on the field. McCluster wasn't particularly used much this past year as the odd man out under Andy Reid's new system, but he could be very useful in a Tavon Austin-like role for Geno Smith and the Jets.
