    Default Dexter McCluster Unhappy With Role, Trade Possible?

    COMMENTARY | There might not have been one player more elated about the arrival of Andy Reid to be the next head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs than Dexter McCluster.


    Reid's version of the West Coast Offense was supposed to be the magic elixir to unchain the potential of the all-purpose back that was stymied by the previous regime. Besides, the Philadelphia Eagles were supposedly interested in taking McCluster in the second round of the 2010 NFL draft.


    If not for Kansas City grabbing him with the 36th pick, the Reid-McCluster marriage would already be entering its fourth year. There is buzz, however, that the whole thing could be called off before the honeymoon takes place.


    Danny Parkins of 610 Sports in Kansas City tweeted that McCluster is unhappy with his role thus far and that that team is exploring all options, including trading the wide receiver.


    Parkins also went on to highlight that there are questions surrounding the illness that has kept McCluster out of practice since August 22, and that caused him to miss last Saturday's preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also says that Reid is not happy as a result.


    While just a rumor at this point, there are countless examples of players forcing their way into favorable situations. If that means Kansas City must trade McCluster to appease both sides, it would not come as a shock.


    The goal is to obviously surround new starting quarterback Alex Smith with as many viable options in the passing game as possible, so trading McCluster would make little sense for a team that lacks depth at wide receiver. And with Tony Moeaki now sidelined with a shoulder injury, the tight end position is all of a sudden thin as well.


    It was assumed that McCluster would play an integral role in the offense this season, so moving on from him now would clearly derail this team's progress -- progress that is necessary to further distance the Chiefs from last season's 2-14 debacle.

    I dont believe they were teying to trade him but I do believe they were questioning just how ill he was after he missed the game and didnt practice this week cuz he was ill but was at a pool on sunday. I think thats what created all this. And bill moss guy reported teams have called about mccluster but hadnt heard anything about the team actively trying to shop him.

And since the game doesn't count it wasn't a big deal. Reid said on the post game video on kcchiefs.com that he decided to sit Mccluster so if he was at a pool the next day I don't think it's a big deal.
    yes that makesa big difference, all is well!!
